Why Yucatan?

The Yucatan is a peninsula in Mexico that also is the home of parts of Guatemala and Belize. It is best known for Cancun and the home of the Mayan culture which began in 2600 B.C. Like all culinary cultures its cooking heritage is based on the land, sea and climate that encompasses it. They age of the culture preceded refrigeration by thousands of years and natural preservatives were created using primarily Habanero Peppers and Seville Oranges creating Chile Tamulado, a vinaigrette and preservative that is used with a pit Barbeque that combines Achiote Paste and smoke in banana leaf wraps. Another preservative created here is to cure the fruits of the ocean that surrounds the Yucatan- Ceviche.
