Presented by: Rocio Carvajal, gastronomy educator, cook and author.
In this conversation we explore the little-known world of religious institutions in the colonial period, and the ways in which friars, priests and nuns impacted the culture and life of Mexico.
We talk about how the kitchens of female convents became a cultural catalyst where the food traditions, ingredients and techniques reflected the very diverse colonial society and set the foundation of a complex, rich and long-lasting gastronomic legacy.
Dr Peralta is a renown food historian who has authored several books in Spanish and writes extensively about Mexico’s culinary culture.
