    One of the experiences I really wanted to have when I visit the Quintana Roo state of Mexico, was to learn about, cook, and eat authentic ancient Mayan food. So we rented a van, and drove over to the small jungle Mayan village of Chunhuhub, to meet up with Kíichpam K'áax (selvabonita.com/en/home/), who are aiming to preserve their Mayan culture.
    It was about a 3.5 hour drive to get to Chunhuhub from Playa Del Carmen, so by the time we arrived we were all pretty hungry. We walked through the milpa (Mesoamerican crop growing system), and finally to the kitchen within the jungle of the property.
    They were already busy cooking, preparing a few traditional Mayan foods, like a variety of tamales and cochinita pibil. They prepared everything to be cooked in the pib, the ancient Mayan traditional way of cooking - an underground hot rock oven (there are many cultures around the world who have used or still use a similar underground cooking technique).
    Tok-sel - One of the most fascinating dishes they cooked was white beans, and they took a hot rock out of the fire, stuck it into the pan with the beans, and roasted them with the rock. It was incredible to see, and the beans had an incredible ummai flavor to them. They were delicious especially when paired with freshly made corn tortillas.
    Achiote (annatto) - An interesting ingredients, used commonly in Mayan food and cooking, is achiote, a pod filled with red / orange fruit. It has a slight pepper and lemony taste, and also makes everything that uses it, bright orange.
    Cochinita pibil - One of the main ingredients in cochinita pibil is achiote. They had pre-marinated it, and it cooked underground as well. The flavor of the pork was amazing, and with tortillas, onions, and salsa, it was truly support.
    We had a number of different tamales as well, all of which were totally different from any tamales I’ve ever had. They were hearty and packed full of corn and beans, and very filling. They were a little on the dry side, but I fully enjoyed learning about them, and watching them being made. The different leaves, including the hoja santa, was great to learn about.
    Special thanks to Centro Ecoturistico Kíichpam K'áax (selvabonita.com/en/home/) for putting everything together. They have an eco lodge and offer various off the beaten path activities like this.

The achiote seed is an essential ingredient in Mexican cooking. It gives huevos a la Mexicana it reddish color in the oil that it's cooked in. It's so delicious but so subtle that you have to taste the food without it to know how essential it is. For me achiote is the taste of Mexico.

Mark, Achiote or Annato, is a spice that latinos use in substitute for Saffron, which is very expensive. We use it in our rice dishes and stews.

Say no to pork “Nevertheless these 👉🏾ye shall not eat, of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the cloven hoof; as the camel, and the hare, and the coney: for they chew the cud, but divide not the hoof; therefore they are unclean unto you. And the👉🏾 swine, because it divideth the hoof, yet cheweth not the cud, it is unclean unto you: ye shall not eat of their flesh, nor touch their dead carcass.” ‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭14:7-8‬ ‭💯 ——- “And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them.” ‭‭Mark‬ ‭5:12‬ ‭KJVA‬‬ —— “So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.” ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭8:31‬ ‭KJVA‬‬ 1 John 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. —— 2 Maccabees 7:1 It came to pass also, that seven brethren with their mother were taken, and compelled by the king 👉🏾against the law 👈🏾to taste swine's flesh, and were tormented with scourges and whips. Seven brothers die rather than eat pork ——- “Howbeit many in Israel were fully resolved and confirmed in themselves not to eat any unclean thing. 👉🏾Wherefore they chose rather to die, that they might not be defiled with meats, and that they might not profane the holy covenant: so then they died.” ‭‭1 Maccabees‬ ‭1:62-63‬ ‭KJVA‬‬

I am kind of amazed at this, and proud that my Navajo culture shares cooking styles with the ancient Mayans! We also utilize the underground oven, for Kneel Down Bread and Navajo cake. The Kneel Down Bread is made of fresh ground corn wrapped inside of a corn husk and baked in the underground oven. Then the Navajo cake, is made with a dried ground corn flour consistency mixed with hot water, and a paste(corn flour mixture & human saliva). There is a layer of corn husks on the bottom of the oven and the corn mixture is poured in, while layering all sides and the top with corn husks. It is then covered with dirt and a built fire goes right on top of it. It cooks from dusk to dawn. They're both so good. The human saliva part is kind of unusual for an outsider, but normal if you're one of us.

Please come to New Zealand and try some traditional Māori kai. Here, a traditional method of cooking underground is called a Hāngi and can take upto 8 hours for the food to cook. We use volcanic rocks to absorbed and keep heat, tin foil and wet hessian sacks to keep the dirt out, all covered up with earth. Another household favorite is 'Boil Up' and consists of vegetables such as kamokamo and watercress, as well as meats such as bacon bones or pork bones. Also can't forget the motumotu! 😍👍
