Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican holiday and a time for families to gather to remember their family members and friends who have died. Ofrendas (altars) are created, honouring the deceased with sugar skulls, marigolds, Pan de Muertos (Day of the Dead bread) plus the departed’s favourite food and drink. It is similar to Halloween or All Souls day and is a great time to have an autumnal party, just before the winter sets in.

Food and drink plays an important part in the celebrations. Spicy and sweet tamales are special treats that are wrapped and steamed for the festivities. Large pots of pozole and mole are gently simmered and are perfect for large gatherings. Top this off with freshly baked Pan de Muertos which is an enriched bread dough flavoured with aniseed and orange, decorated with little dough bones and plenty of sugar. Serve this with frothy Mexican hot chocolate for maximum comfort.
