Sunday Photo – Chiles en Nogada – The Fruit

It’s the season for chiles en nogada, one of the signature dishes of Puebla, Mexico and no one does them better than Chef Liz Galicia at Puebla’s El Mural de los Poblanos. The dish consists of poblano chiles stuffed with a mix of meat, nuts and fruit smothered in a walnut based cream sauce and sprinkled with pomegranate seeds. The photo above, taken at El Mural de los Poblanos is a still life of the main seasonal fruits that Galicia uses in her recipe. They are manzana panochera (apple), pera lechera (pear) and durazno (peach),. The apple is particularly delightful. Small and sweet with good acidity, it has a heady perfume. The other fruit in her dish, plátano macho (plantain) is not in the photo.
