Mexicans Food history

The deep connection between the heritage and culture of a place and its food is undeniably one that lends some credence to the saying 'What you eat is who you are'. For us laymen to deduce a country's identity by studying what their culinary habits are seems a little far fetched, but believe it or not, there are plenty of experts and analysts who have dedicated their lives to studying this correlation. Mexican cuisine stems from a long and varied history and throws a lot of light on some of the turbulent times this culture has had to face. 

Mexican food and culture has had a long standing symbiotic relationship of sorts that adds tremendous personality to the study of this fascinating race. The study of Mexican history and its culinary culture goes hand in hand, and it would be a fairly tough endeavor to carry out one without the other. The origins of Mexican cuisine can be traced back to the Mayan civilization, who firmly believed that the richness of food can enrich the spirit and body of a person through various sensory perceptions like taste, smell, and touch.

Traditional Mexican meals include a wide use of chocolates, peanuts, tomatoes, beans, and vanilla. Combining this with the specialty cuisines of European conquerors (namely the Spanish) including wine, cheese, pork, beef, and lamb, Mexicans have created a food culture that combines the elegance of folklore and the pragmatism of modernity. It is widely believed that Mexican food is extremely spicy, but this is true only to a certain extent.

Argentinian Steak & History


Argentinian Steak & History


Cows were first brought to Argentina in 1536 by Spanish Conquistadors. Due to the geography of the Pampas and a small national market, the cattle multiplied rapidly. Railway building within Argentina and the invention of refrigerated trains and ships in the late 19th century made an export market and Argentina's beef export industry started to thrive. The flipped seasons between the Northern and Southern Hemispheres meant that Argentine beef came onto the market at a time of year when beef was less at hand in the Northern Hemisphere, which further lifted the potential export market in the United States and European markets.

Following the rising demand for high quality beef, new breeds and selective crossbreeding have been developed.

Argentine beef and its production have played a major part in the Culture of Argentina, from the asado to the history of the gauchos of the Pampas. Landowners became wealthy from beef production and export, and estancia owners built large houses, important buildings in Buenos Aires and elsewhere, and contributed to politics, philanthropy and society. The agricultural show La Rural each winter in Buenos Aires became a major part of the social season since it started in 1886.

In Chile heightened taxes for the import of Argentine cattle in 1905 led to the Meat riots, one of the first massive protests in Santiago. The price of meat was kept artificially high by the government, by means of the combination of a special tariff applied to cattle imports from Argentina, in order to protect the domestic producers, and a runaway inflation. The riots lasted from October 22 until October 27, and between 200 and 250 people were killed over this period, while more than 500 were injured. The financial losses were staggering. This revolt emphasized that the social problems were far more serious than what the authorities believed
