Manjares prehispánicos en el siglo XIX
Tarot book and card set based on the pre-Hispanic, Mexican tradition of Entomophagy.
Entomophagy is a tradition and custom that dates back to pre-Hispanic times. This concept refers to the habit of eating insects, a food base for the inhabitants of Mesoamerica. Mexico is a country rich in history, and each culture varies in their consumption and worldview of insects. Although today this custom is not so common, it still exists and several delicious dishes have been created throughout Mexico.
It is worth mentioning that the World Organization of the United Nations for Food and Agriculture (FAO), affirms that insects are the food of the future, since they are considered as a food alternative that contains a great amount of nutrients; it can combat malnutrition for more than 2 billion people in the world.
