FLAVOUR OF THE MONTH
The staples of Mexican food come from the multi-ethnic society created by the Aztecs – corn, beans, avocados, agave and chilli pepper. The cuisine is typically characterised by strong flavours such as onions, garlic, chilli and herbs. The earthy flavours come from key spices such as oregano and cumin. Europeans introduced a number of foods after the Spanish conquest such as beef, pork, chicken, dairy products and rice. Asian and African influences were also introduced in around the 16th century.
This promotion will run for the whole of July and is supported by recipe ideas to inspire you to embrace the flavours of Mexicana.
