WHAT DOES ‘FRUTAS Y VERDURAS’ MEAN?
Simply: ‘Fruits and Vegetables’! It may surprise you to know that Mexico has a rich tradition of plant foods, preserved and protected by indigenous communities. These foods have survived centuries of threats thanks to their farming and foraging traditions.
Our Plant Food Lovers Experiences focus on these endemic plant foods integral to the culture. More importantly, we give recognition to those who are the guardians of these foods at the heart of Mexico’s renowned gastronomy heritage.
Through tours, workshops and classes we offer a context in which you will experience authentic cultural interchange over these fresh, healthy foods.
Join us in Mexico City, Merida, Oaxaca City and San Miguel de Allende; discover the plant foods that make each region’s local flavors and recipes unique.
Come… eat well of the delicious gifts of la madre tierra, and let us show you how to make food choices that matter.
