‘La Purísima’ is a celebration to the purest conception of Virgin Mary, taking place on December 8th, according to the catholic calendar. The celebration itself grew into a national festival where cities and towns now complete to create the best and most altars. I’m already working on mine.
‘Purísimas’ themselves are made for gratitude for miracles and usually last nine days.

For the next 5 months, she is the icon I have chosen to watch over my kitchen here in San Miguel. Why?

I need some kitchen miracles of my own.

Buen Apetito!
