ABSTRACT
The article provides information on Mesomerica's best cultural cuisine. Mesomerica, commonly referred to as Central America, was home to several societies, including the Aztec, Maya and Olmec, for millennia before the Spanish discovered the region. Many foods such as black beans, rice and corn are common to all of these countries. Several staple foods are handled differently by each culture, and each country has its own unique ingredients to give seemingly similar foods their own individual stamp.
