mexico celebrates 209 years of independence from spain

And the president chose sobriety in both forms and substance. With some variants, he repeated the formula a hundred years ago. Some of the novelties were the list of “20 alive” to the parents of the country or the music chosen to encourage the party: regional songs and dances from all the states of the country. An innovation received by the 80,000 people of the Zocalo with yawns but with militant commitment. Street vendors, the fastest to perceive that a different pulse travels across the country, sold trumpets or hats with the Mexican flag at the same speed as dolls, cups or t-shirts with the face of López Obrador.

Mexican Cuisine Declared Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO

Do you know anybody who does not know what enchiladas are? Or someone who has never had tacos or any other type of Mexican food? Mexican cuisine is well known for its variety of flavors and colors, and for its combination of different spices and unique ingredients. Traditional Mexican food is based on corn, beans and different types of chili peppers.

National Relevance

Journalist Tatiana Gutierrez, from the Mexican publication, describes how food played an essential role in Mexico's bicentennial celebration:

"We will close this period of suggestions for the bicentennial celebrations on a high note, how? With the most precious thing Mexico has: its gastronomy"...

Mexican food in the country is very diverse. You can find big differences in each state and province, from North to South, from the hot climate regions to the coasts, and from the mountains to the arid areas. There is a great variety of cultures and communities within the country; this is why the food from each region has different textures, flavors and scents.

David Emery, in his article “Top 10 Most tasty cuisines in the world”, writes about the international diversity that makes up what Mexican food is today:

“Known for its varied flavors and spices, Mexican Cuisine is a result of the Spanish conquistadores’ interaction with the Aztec culture. Most of the Mexican food we eat today is a delicious combination of ancient traditions, Aztec, Mayan and Spanish. The French also had their part in the story, adding baked goods such as sweet breads and the bolillo”.

About a month ago, on August 17, a grandma from Michoacán named Ángela began uploading the most chill and appetizing cooking videos—complete with the sounds of kids playing in the background—to a channel called De mi Rancho a Tu Cocina, translated to “From My Ranch to Your Kitchen.” She’s already got close to 7 million views. But the reason behind her smashing success goes beyond the usual aspirational cooking aesthetic that most recipe videos rely on. Instead, it offers those Coco-esque warm and fuzzy abuela vibes that resonate hard if you come from a family that has roots in Mexican ranchos, those places in rural Mexico that are often associated with nostalgia, simpler times, and humility.

Sure, you’ll want to attempt to fry some puffy eggs in your kitchen after seeing how easy she makes those type of things seem but more importantly, by the end of the video, you’ll want to hug her like she’s your very own abuela.
