I cherish the beauty in culture and what it offers. Mexican cuisine is filled with technique and rich in creativity.

Everything tastes better in a molcajete because of all the natural oils released when the ingredients are crushed. A salsa made in a molcajete holds great value in the heart of people who love Mexican cuisine. My mother didn’t own a blender for a long time and she used a molcajete to make all her dishes. I still remember the aromas released into the back patio, where she made her dishes on a chimney made from clay. Believe me, it cannot get more authentic than this. If you feel inspired to purchase your own, congratulations. Just make sure you cure it before using it.
