Let us start with the beginning. I must say that the origin and source of any gastronomical culture is found in home cooking. From one generation to another, families will shape their own culture, a special way to prepare the different dishes, to season them, to garnish them, to preserve them, to serve them and to sample them. The recipes of the great-grandmother and of the grandmother reach the home of the mother like a sacred tradition. Each family has its own traditions to celebrate birthdays, sweet 16 parties, baptisms, weddings. And the precious extreme is reached of having it own form and way to mount the table, to select the table linens, to seat the companions around the sacred altar of food. It is a pity that not all families keep a cookbook of all the meals and traditions because then we would have the same culinary order as the French. Compotes, jams, fruits in vinegar, all prepared according to the family formula, fill the pantries of the Mexicans as well as the French. These traditions go beyond food, they also take over certain procedures related to drinks like eggnog, coffee, mint or pomegranate liquors, curaditos, mezcales, pulques and many more.
