Enjoy the flavors of Guerrero! Mexico is known world-wide for its traditional foods. In 2010, UNESCO recognized Mexican cuisine by adding it to the Intangible Heritage List. The cuisine, just like in many other parts of the world, is very “regional” – varying according to the different states and geographic locations. Just like the food in the southern USA is different than that on the east coast, the foods and flavors of the State of Guerrero are unique in Mexico, and in the world!
Traditional Mexican cuisine is a comprehensive cultural model comprising farming, ritual practices, age-old skills, culinary techniques, and ancestral community customs and manners. It is made possible by collective participation in the entire traditional food chain: from planting and harvesting to cooking and eating. The basis of the cuisine is corn, beans, and chili, augmented by native ingredients such as varieties of tomatoes, squashes, avocados, cocoa, and vanilla. In Zihuatanejo, there’s fresh fish, sea foods, and mezcal!
