Curiosities - The Royal Convent of Jesus Maria was founded in 1578 for the female descendants of the Spanish conquistadors. Seemingly forgotten, the structure is still standing in Mexico City's Historic Center.
The nuns of Jesus Maria were among the wealthiest and most aristocratic. Dona Maria Francisca Priesto, who posed for this portrait by an anonymous painter, joined the convent on the 24th of June, 1792.
Despite the religious discipline in this aristocratic convent, the nuns of Jesus Maria had time to experiment in their kitchens. With the help of their servants, they created wonderful recipes that combined Asian and European spices with Mexican ingredients.
Among the most popular recipes of the convent were concoctions of hot chocolate with infusions of jasmine, cinnamon, vanilla and Mexican chilies.
