This project took 18 months to prepare and has 200 stories to talk about Mexican gastronomy, even starting from what type of food consumer you are “foodie”, do you just like to see, historian or want to find new flavors. In these stories we can take a tour of the elaboration of the famous chiles en nogada, go through a gastronomic tour in Mexico City, learn about ancestral ceremonies related to food or know how to eat insects in the proper way.
In addition, along with these pieces, some 200 stories present different angles of current Mexican gastronomy, ranging from traditional cooks from states such as Oaxaca and Guanajuato, to samples about the preparation of Chile en Nogada or the use of exotic ingredients, such as the Izote flower in the state of Veracruz or the harvest of insects, related to the use of the fantastic biodiversity that the country has.
In part, this project has to do with an effort to recover the country’s tourism sector, “in alliance with Sectur and other organizations we seek to help in the digital transformation of the sector and give greater visibility to the attractiveness that Mexico represents in domestic tourism as international ”, said in a conference, Julian Coulter, Country Director of Google Mexico.
In “Sabores de México” you can take a virtual tour and learn the stories of people from the different iconic markets in the country, learn the vision of chefs such as Enrique Olvera from “Pujol” or Martha Ortiz from “Dulce Patria”, and also, have recipes for some of the most recognized dishes from all over the country on hand through the list Flavors of Mexico on the YouTube channel of Google México.
