While in Puebla, Mexico, for our honeymoon, we took a wonderful cooking course at Mesones Sacristia, a boutique hotel. We learned how to make some truly spectacular dishes like Mole. In this photo, Sona is doing what she does best: burning a poblano pepper. In this case, she did it on purpose to use for the base of the Mole.
