Pulitzer Prize-winning Los Angeles Times food critic Jonathan Gold speaks about Feria de Los Moles (2012):
La Feria de Los Moles' goal is not only to showcase the delicious Mexican cuisine, a tradition-recognized by the UNESCO world patrimony. The fair was founded by Pedro Ramos ˜Union de Poblanos En El Exterior (UPEXT), an organization recognized with a Proclamation from the City of Los Angeles recognizing its efforts in support of education, health and issues that affect the Latino community in the city.
HISTORY OF MOLE
Mole is a dish that originated from the collision of indigenous and Spanish cultures in Mexico. Legend chronicles the discovery of the tomato, cocoa, vanilla and condiments that are part of most mole recipes.
Also the ancient Nahuatl name molli was an important dish of salsa. Most of the mole ingredients come from Mexico and involve an important and ancient utensil, the metate, made of stone and used to chop and mix all of these condiments for molli. Because of the use of this pre-Columbian utensil, we can say that mole has an important role in the culinary history of Mexico.
Later on, during the colonial era more ingredients were added to the indigenous mulli, ingredients such as cinnamon, clove, pepper and almond. In Puebla thiscombination was named mole poblano, a dish combining culinary elements of indigenous and Spanish ancestry.
Although Puebla documented the first state of the mole dish, there’s no certain origin, but the legend is well known, and it tells that Mother Andrea de la Asuncion, from Santa Rosa Convent in Puebla, presented the first mole thanks to a divine wind that dropped all these different condiments to the pot where she was preparing this mole for the sympathy of Viceroy Tomas Antonio de la Cerda y Aragon, Marques de La Laguna.
While Oaxaca is a state of major variety of moles where 7 different dishes exists in the Mexican Republic: Negro (black), rojo (red), coloradito (colored), mancha manteles (table cloth stained), verde (green), Amarillo (yellow) and chichilo.
