Learning to Cook Regional Delights

Attending a local cooking school is the best way to learn the local cuisine and Anguilla serves as a key location for cooking schools and food preparation here. Foodies who choose to mix learning with pleasure in Akumal often find this to be a great chance to meet new friends and interact with locals.

The Basics: Seafood & Regional

Fresh seafood abounds in Akumal, with all the usual suspects making an appearance: sandwiches out of beach-side shacks, grilled fish platters and plenty of ceviche. Regional ceviche has its own unique flavor acquired by the unconventional splash of orange soda or juice and sprinkling of tomatoes. Akumal also has two seafood dishes that are distinct to the region: Pescado a la Talla is the most well-known regional specialty, a grilled snapper that has been marinated in spices and chiles. Vuelve a la vida or “return to life” in English, is the perfect hangover cure that locals swear by. It’s a seafood cocktail served in a chilled goblet with a side of saltine crackers and sliced avocado. A vuelve a la vida usually contains some combination of shrimp, raw clams and oysters, squid and ceviche doused in tomato juice, ketchup and a spicy salsa.

The cuisine of the Yucatán Peninsula (actually three states: Yucatán, Campeche and Quintana Roo) is perhaps the most revered after Oaxaca. Its relative geographic and cultural isolation (Mexicans from the region might refer to themselves as “yucateco” as readily as “mexicano”) and prominent African, Caribbean and Middle Eastern influences make for a very distinctive cuisine. Habanero chile, achiote (annatto seed), sour orange, red onion, spices like allspice and large-leafed Yucatecan oregano, and seasoning pastes called recados are some of the ingredients far more common to la cocina yucateca than the rest of the country.

Pozole

In Akumal, you can enjoy two types of pozole: white and green. White pozole is the kind you can find just about anywhere in Mexico; it’s prepared with chicken or pork, heirloom corn, vegetables and tortilla chips.

Sopa de Albóndigas

Albondigas soup is a traditional Mexican meatball soup (“albondigas” means “meatballs” in Spanish) that my mother has cooked for our family for more than 50 years. It is our version of comfort food. A simple soup base is made with sautéed onions, garlic, broth, and tomatoes.

Tamales 

The delicious tamales guerrerenses have a special flavor that makes for a unique dining experience. They often consist of black mole with pork, chicken or green beans and squash blossoms wrapped in a banana leaf that gives them a more smooth and solid consistency. You can also enjoy bean tamales covered with green pumpkin seed mole or tamales made from fresh pumpkin.

Ceviche

Akumal is a sea-side town, fresh seafood is something that can easily be enjoyed during your visit. Ceviche is prepared by cooking pieces of fish that were dipped in lemon juice for at least one night before draining the mixture and adding onion, fresh lemon juice, diced avocado, cilantro, olive oil, olives and chili.

Pescado a la Talla

Akumal is full of coconut and tamarind trees, and as a result, there are various recipes that have been created using the fruits. Some of the treats that are peddled on the beach and everywhere in between include tamarind pulp mixed with sugar, jamoncillo, a nutty kind of fudge, baked coconut candy and coconut ice cream.

Vuelve a la Vida

Vuelve a la vida or “return to life” in English, is the perfect hangover cure that locals swear by. It’s essentially a seafood cocktail (think bloody Mary with seafood thrown in) served in a chilled goblet with a side of saltine crackers and sliced avocado. A vuelve a la vida usually contains some combination of shrimp, raw clams and oysters, squid and ceviche doused in tomato juice, ketchup and a spicy salsa.
