Tabasco

April 15 to July 4th

Tabasco’s cuisine is one of the most traditional, enigmatic and rare in all of Mexico. Before the introduction of cattle into the new world, ancient indigenous groups would source all their ingredients from the wild, which led to a nutrition focused mainly on corn, fish, shellfish, and animals inhabiting Tabasco’s jungles. Cacao plays a big role as Tabasco is credited as the birthplace of chocolate as it is known in the Americas, where it was first produced by the Olmecs 1500 BC.
