The municipality of Solidaridad (where Playa del Carmen is located), has less than 30 years of life, but Playa del Carmen has more than 100 years of history, so it is important to rescue its rich past, including the fantastic dishes that were originally prepared in the region.
Manuel García Maldonado, director of the National Chamber of the Restaurant Industry and Seasoned Foods (Canirac) of Playa del Carmen, said that they are about to consolidate this gastronomic rescue, together with the municipal authorities and residents of the area.
He said that there have been previous efforts to provide an identity based on gastronomy, but after organizing contests, the winning dishes have not been adopted at local restaurants.
He stressed the importance of looking into the past, to know what the old settlers used to eat, and there was no confusion, as with the Tikin Xic fish, which is associated with Isla Mujeres, because although it was created there, it happened when the territory was still part of Yucatan.
In other topics, García Maldonado said that May used to be “low season” for tourism, but today, it is turning into a busy month for the hosting and the restaurant sector.
Starting with a long weekend, then comes May 10, which is Mexico’s Mother’s Day, and then Mother’s Day for the people of the United States (which is celebrated on the second Sunday of the month of May), and finally the Mexican celebration of Teacher’s Day (Día del Maestro) on the 15th.
