Keen to be immersed in the colours and flavours of Latin America?

We have joined in partnership with Te Uru Waitākere Contemporary Gallery to present a unique opportunity to satisfy New Zealanders’ wanderlust with De la Milpa a la Mesa: a Mexican food journey, an exhibition about Mexico’s agricultural and culinary heritage.

The cutting-edge, research-based exhibition will take place at Te Uru, 420 Titirangi Road, Titirangi, Auckland, from 18 February to 7 May 2023. De la Milpa a la Mesa celebrates the richness of Mexican cuisine, from farms and markets to restaurants and home kitchens. Farmers, scientists, vendors, and cooks from across Mexico share their unique perspectives on agriculture, climate change, food sovereignty, and how their diverse communities are confronting global concerns in their everyday lives – concerns similar to those found in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Te Uru is the fourth and final stop on the exhibition’s national tour, which has included Wellington, Christchurch and Foxton.

You can find out more about De la Milpa a la Mesa on its website, Facebook, and Instagram pages.
