It is a great honour for me to address you today. It has been a long dream for me to be able to share a little part of Mexican culture to all of those countries in Africa who took maize as a staple food.
As you may know, Kenya hosted in November 2010 a meeting of the UNESCO Committee examining the new inclusions into the List of Immaterial Heritage of Mankind.
In that ocassion Mexican Traditional Food was the first food to be included in that list. Mexican Traditional Food had and has maize as one of the central ingredients , but equally important it had and has the nixtamalization process of maize as an integral part of it.
