Laura Esquivel - Mexican Writers | don QuijoteThis is a story all about sex, death, families and food on a late 19th century Mexican ranch. Tita, the youngest of three daughters, is destined to remain a spinster looking after her widowed mother Elena "until she dies". The love of Tita's life, Pedro, in the face of this difficulty, marries her eldest sister Rosaura in order to be close to Tita. Tita remains on the ranch, cooking for the family, abused by her forbidding mother played with terrifying bony authority by Sarah Kemp and advised in moments of crisis by the ghost of her all-wise and ever-gentle nurse Nacha. But her feelings seep into her food.
