West of Veracruz beyond the coffee and vanilla plantations the road climbs to the high plateau of central Mexico. Here is Tlaxcala where I live and where the indigenous tribes and Europeans first mixed. Nearby is the city of Puebla where I was born and where the kitchens of the “New World” joined with those of Spain, Persia, and France, creating “Cocina Poblana” the Cuisine of Puebla. This is a fusion of tastes that are unique to this area of Mexico and far beyond what is thought of as “Mexican Cuisine”. The Mexican Home Cooking School is renowned worldwide and you will see us in many magazines, books, tv shows and videos listing us right at the top of Mexican Cooking Schools.
