Central Market Announces Pasaporte Mexico as its 7th Passport Destination
Mark your calendars for a culinary expedition from the Sea of Cortez to the Yucatán Peninsula
During Pasaporte Mexico April 20 through May 3, Central Market will offer a taste-tempting excursion through the traditional cuisines of Mexico’s interior and coastal regions. Mexico’s widely diverse geographical landscapes yield a tremendous variety of bold flavors and unique regional dishes, many of which are not widely known across Texas.
The New York Times ranked Mexico City the number one travel destination in 2016, and the culinary adventurers at Central Market could not agree more! It’s the perfect time for Texans to explore and expand their appreciation for the various traditions of this intriguing country. Mexico is rich in culture and diversity–with indigenous art, music, and cuisine influenced by centuries past, it is a place that naturally evokes curiosity and discovery.
During Pasaporte Mexico, Central Market stores across Texas will overflow with an array of Mexican products, including savory prepared foods, bakery specialties, wines, olive oil, honey, chocolates, craft beers, coffee and much more. The stores’ chefs and café staff will serve up amazing dishes such as traditional pozole, Oaxacan style mole, and nopales salads, just to name a few.
A big part of the festival will be the appearance of renowned Mexican chefs, including Pati Jinich of the PBS series “Pati’s Mexican Table;” Iliana De la Vega, owner of El Naranjo restaurant in Austin, Texas; and Margarita Carrillo Arronte, acclaimed cookbook author and chef. All of these distinguished experts will preside over cooking classes, wine dinners, and a bounty of tastings and cultural events.
