History on this traditional and seasonal dish.
The origin story of Chiles en Nogada goes back to August 1821 when the sister of Santa Monica Convent in Puebla wanted to welcome Agustin de Iturbide with a very special meal after he just had signed the Declaration of Independence and he was passing by through Puebla. They collected some of the ingredients that were in season during the month of August and they came out with this recipe. Some of the unique ingredients include criollo fruits such as pear, apple, and peach. The colours of the ingredients on it are related to the colors of the Mexican flag, the Poblano pepper is the green colour, the Nogada sauce is the white and the pomegranate seeds are the red, making it the most patriotic dish to celebrate Mexican independence. In the original recipe the poblano pepper is battered with egg and then fried in oil before putting the nogada sauce. Although there is much debate of the versions and authentic recipes in this workshop we will show you how to create a simple version using seasonal ingredients available in Japan.
