It is set for October 29 in the San Sebastian neighborhood….
MERIDA – One of the most emblematic and important Mexican festivities is approaching, and this year to celebrate the “Day of the Dead” in the centric neighborhood of San Sebastian will be held the first fair dedicated to a beloved traditional meal of the Yucatan Peninsula.
In Yucatan a fundamental part of these traditions is the famous ‘Pib’, also known as ‘Mucbipollo’: a dish prepared with corn dough, pork or chicken, butter, and kol (a garnish made of corn dough, water and annatto).
According to SIPSE with information from social networks, the first Fair of the Pib would be held on Sunday, October 29 in the San Sebastían Neighborhood, in the center of Mérida.
The fair is scheduled to run from 10:00 a.m. to 08:00 p.m., and although no specific information has been given about what will be included in the event, a phone number was given for those wishing to participate as exhibitors. The phone number is 9991-71-41-11.
It should be noted that this dish is prepared during the festivities of the “Day of the Dead”, and is an essential part of Hanal Pixán (Mayan words for “Meal for the Dead”). In the interior of the state its preparation is carried out in the first or second weekend of November, in addition to that the recipe usually varies.
Pib is a Mayan-origin word and means oven, and is a technique of prehispanic origin that is applied to foods cooked in an oven that is made underground, so the word also defines a product “baked-in,” in this case under the earth.
A hole in the soil is made to use it as oven, its base is filled with firewood, and on this are placed stone plates that will heat up. Then, on the stones the Pib is cooked covered with banana leaves, then the hole is sealed and so is enclosed all the heat of the oven. When the Pib is done the people take it out the ground and start the celebration.
