De la Milpa a la Mesa takes visitors on a journey through a country with incredible cultural and ecological diversity, whose agriculture and cuisine are treasured World Heritage.
From the farm to the market to the table, food has been the heart and soul of Mexican life for millennia.
In this vibrant, colourful and interactive exhibition, New Zealanders can meet farmers, scientists, vendors, home cooks and acclaimed chefs from across Mexico. They will hear how they are meeting global challenges with ingenuity and resilience to protect their way of life for the benefit of humanity.
The exhibition builds intercultural understanding through insight and empathy, deepening New Zealanders’ understanding and appreciation of Mexican culture, beyond the clichés and stereotypes.
