The proposal to hold the VIII World Forum of Mexican Gastronomy in the City of Morelia, Michoacán lies in the fact that the State of Michoacán meets all the necessary conditions to achieve the purposes of a world-class event. In that land, throughout history, a true cult for culinary activity and an outstanding attachment to its cultural heritage in general has developed, a circumstance that allows it to host highly relevant activities and events. It is no coincidence that it was in Uruapan where the idea of ​​preparing the candidacy file that in 2010 allowed the inscription of our cuisine on the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage list was conceived.
