An olfactive reconstruction of Viceregal Mexico. A Baroque, spicy gourmand with notes of: Cocoa absolute, Mexican vanilla, cinnamon, and a smoked chili infusion.
November, 1695, Mexico City.
Deep inside the halls of the Royal Convent of Jesus Maria, a group of reverent nuns prepares a Baroque recipe of spiced Cocoa. The brew is infused with an assortment of chilies that tempt rapture, and the air is rich with the scent of exotic spices. After centuries of safe-keeping within this closed world, their secrets are finally revealed to the senses.
Developed in conjunction with Rodrigo Flores-Roux and Yann Vasnier
