The cuisine of the Mexican State of Yucatan is both delicious and diverse, consisting of a mouth watering mixture of flavors of Mexican and European origin.
The presence of the ancient Mayan culture is everywhere visible, and the people of Yucatana today enjoy an unbroken link to the culinary traditions of their ancestors that date back milenia and make use of the abundant local incredients like fish, fruit, corn, bitter orange, tamarind, squash, lime and avocado.
Long isolated from the rest of Mexico by difficult terrain that made travel by road nearly impossible, but blessed with many natural ports, Yucatan's cuisine was influenced by the ingredients and styles that arrived on ships from Europe, New Orleans, and Cuba, who introduced meat and fowl.
