Mexico City is alive with culture – from museums to monuments and parks – but don’t forget about the capital city’s culinary scene. In 2010, UNESCO named traditional Mexican cuisine an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Food is a great lens through which to explore Mexico’s history, and there are many tours that offer the unique chance to cook, eat and see what is usually reserved for locals.
