A few years ago I was pouring overFrida's Fiestas
, pretending I was Mexican and I came across the mole poblano recipe. I couldn't get it out of my head mainly because as I researched and inquired more, the responses I received were that it must be made with several people, it takes hours, if not days and it should be eaten as a celebration. Umm, what about that would make someone NOT want to make this!
I began making mole over six years ago and I would venture to say I learned from one of the best hostesses. I'm gonna make a blanket statement and just say that Mexican women are by far the most hospitable and endearing hostesses. I didn't just learn how to make a sauce with many uses; I learned how to be a better hostess along the way, improvise recipes and use more emotion when cooking.
