“The kitchen was the privileged place of encounters and affections for artist Leonora and her family. According to Homero Aridjis and Silvia Cherem, it all started in the kitchen where, depending on the occasion, Leonora served tea, whiskey or tequila. In this space of the house she found a divergent relationship to her role as mother and wife, and made the act of cooking a playful, experimental and irreverent process. In her article "The Alchemical Kitchen: at Home with Leonora Carrington", Susan L. Aberth (2012) points out that "the kitchen was the favorite place where the artist received her visitors around a round table in which there were playing cards, plants, ashtrays, bottles, cups of tea and some sweets" (p. 8). It was the place where Leonora demarcated a magic circle, says Aberth, in which beyond domesticity the transformation of established roles was put into play, making it an emblematic instance of female empowerment. Leonora reverts in her works, but above all in her daily life, the act of cooking in an activity where ancestral connections occur to which she alludes through the alchemy of food, the rites of witches and the healings of shamans.” (HKB translation) –Page 17.
