“In the convents around Mexico during the colonial era, the nuns became serious cooks, says Pati Jinich, author of ‘Pati’s Mexican Table’ and host of the PBS series of the same name. The church was a major power, and it was in the kitchens of the convents where traditional Spanish recipes started to take in local ingredients; many Mexican classics like mole poblano and chiles en nogada supposedly came from the convents.

Rompope reportedly was invented in the convent of Santa Clara, in Puebla. ‘Puebla is known as the city of sweets,’ Jinich says, and the nuns had a reputation for ‘an incredible sweet tooth. . . .
