Oliva Garizurieta You have arrived to this house, to this table. It is your house and it is your table. On them you shall see an endless parade of “Cinderellas” of national-popular Mexican food pass before your eyes. They have been dressed in festive clothes to be rediscovered by you. They are fruit of our people’s culture and creativity. You might have seen them before in humble homes and wealthy houses, at markets and squares, wearing their everyday garments or Sunday dresses.
When you see them and try to recognize them, dear guest, don’t do it in such a way that hurts their dignity. You have almost no need of all the silverware that lavishly ornaments other tables. Something more simple, smooth and delicate is enough. Don’t you remember that we were made from corn?*
