The kitchen of the Convent of Santa Rosa is considered the most beautiful in the state, since it was in this place where the mole poblano was elaborated for the first time by Sr. Andrea de la Asunción. This place was built in the seventeenth century as a beguinage of Dominicans.
The story tells that Sister Andrea found inspiration after going to Mass when she heard a voice that instructed her to use mulatto, pasilla, ancho, chipotle, onion, garlic and tomato, as well as almonds, sesame and peanut.
These ingredients respond to a fusion between Mexican and Spanish flavors, which managed to create a peculiar dish that identifies the gastronomy of Puebla. Also the kitchen of Santa Rosa has a beautiful talavera decoration.
