Despite lacking large domestic animals, the Aztecs developed a rich cuisine that dazzled outsiders with its variety. Since the Spanish conquest, crops first grown by the Aztecs have spread to the tables of the world: corn, chili peppers, tomatoes, avocado, and chocolate, to name a few. Original Aztec recipes like tortillas, tamales and guacamole have accepted new influences as they developed into the national cuisine of Mexico. This class is a celebration of the ingenious foodways of the pre-conquest Aztecs. We’ll learn about the Aztec diet and the cultural beliefs that shaped how the Aztecs viewed their food. We’ll also taste a few Aztec recipes, like a corn-based beverage and a “superfood” harvested from lakes. This class is a general overview of food history, with samples.
