More than a thousand people, including locals and visitors to Mérida, had the opportunity to enjoy the European flavours on offer at The Harbor Mérida from April 27 to May 1 in the fourth edition of the tastings held as part of the campaign “Un Viaje a Europa en cada bocado”.
On this occasion, people tried for themselves a wide variety of products, such as olive oils from France, Greece and Portugal; cheeses from France, Germany, and the Netherlands; Danish and Irish butters; meats from Denmark, Germany, Italy, and Spain; fruit and vegetables from Denmark, France, Italy, Spain, and Sweden; delicious Belgian and Greek cookies and truffles, chocolate from Lithuania, and Swedish gummies; and finally bread from Bulgaria and the Netherlands.
At the tasting, our on-site hosts were on hand to share their expertise on how EU foods are produced and how to include high-quality EU ingredients in your favourite recipes or pair EU products with Mexican dishes. In addition, in the exhibition area, people were able to see for themselves the wide range of EU products that are available in Mexico and that can easily be found in supermarkets and gourmet stores.
If you missed out on the tastings, but would still like to learn about the wide range of EU foods that are available and the production methods that ensure the high quality of these unique products, you can always download the book “Un Viaje a Europa en cada bocado” for free via a QR code.
