Lent - March 18th-25th
Cuaresma, which comes from the word cuarenta, meaning "40", is one of the most important holidays of the year for Mexicans of Catholic faith. For 40 days and nights, Cuaresma is a time of simple living, reflection and thankfulness. It is also a time of penitence, with many giving up meat on Fridays, and substituting fish and other vegetarian dishes to honor their faith.
Cuaresma is celebrated throughout Mexico with a menu that includes early spring vegetables, sweet and piquant roasted beets, and fragrant seafood dishes with savory herbs and moles. Even a true carnivore will indulge!
