November 1695. Late afternoon in the Convent of Jesus Maria, Mexico City.

The kitchen of the Royal Convent of Jesus Maria is a sacred space: Baroque carvings in cedar wood beams, thick stucco walls and earthenware pots that brew elaborate recipes. Among them, a hot cocoa formula rich enough to unleash rapture, a climax of the senses.

Developed with Nicole Mancini, Rodrigo Flores-Roux and Yann Vasnier.
