MEALS OF MICHOACAN
Similar to her depiction of the Kitchen of Michoacan, this one is named after the meals of Michoacan. In this depiction, we have the woman cooking fish - and the man who is bringing fish in a net flung across his back. Behind him is a young corn-maiden cooking atole - which is a hot corn & maize beverage. The new design in this piece is the molcajete - pictured on the left near the bottom. This is a three-footed stone bowl made from volcanic stone. These are placed over a grill or fire to heat it thoroughly before filling it with delicious cooked meats and vegetables - which are then served with fresh tortillas.
