Délice member city
The City of Puebla and its historic downtown, was proudly appointed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site on December 11, 1987.
Puebla’s cuisine fills all five senses and is best seen in the history of a city founded in 1531. The cuisine of Puebla emerged of the acceptance of the syncretism and fusion of the centuries the Arabs ruled in Spain, and the intervention of labor and ingredients of Mesoamerica. Mexican food, composed of chilis, grains, mole pastes, tortillas, different types of cheese, chapulines, mescal (Mexican liquor) and a long list of local products, was officially declared Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, by UNESCO on November 16, 2010. Being considered as one of the most representative Mexican cuisines, the gastronomy in Puebla, full of tradition and fusions, has contributed in great measure to this intangible heritage.
