The Best Foods for Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead)
At Verde Kitchen, we take immense pride in our traditional and authentic Mexican cuisine. As we approach the holiday season, one very important holiday is approaching, Dia De Los Muertos, better known as the Day of the Dead. This is a very important celebration in Mexico where the dearly departed are remembered and celebrated. Like many holidays that take place in Latin America, the food that’s prepared and served on this day is an integral part of the celebration. Today, we look at foods that are served to honor the dead.
Normally, vodka and tacos have very little in common with one another. As a matter of fact, it seems one of the only occasions that warrant an appearance from both is when tacos and bloody marys are served up on a Sunday Brunch. Aside from this scenario, both of these popular items share a common ground with one another. What is it? On October 4th, we recognize their greatness by observing National Vodka Day and National Taco Day. You might be asking yourself which one you plan on celebrating. However, at Verde Kitchen & Cocktails, the choice is irrelevant because we’re inviting you to celebrate both!
Hispanic heritage month is observed from September 15th to October 15th every year. It’s split between two months due to the significance of the date for many Latin American countries. It marks the Declaration of Independence of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua, all declaring independence from the Spanish Empire in 1821. The societal and cultural contributions given to the world by several Hispanic countries are worth celebrating. Even if you’re not of Hispanic origin, there are several ways in which you can contribute and recognize Hispanic people and their continued contributions to the world we live in.
