This recipe marks, again, another event in Tita's life. She meets John's Aunt Mary. Tita wanted to cook a good dinner in order to impress her. Since she is a good cook and cooking is her passion, she impresses Aunt Mary. "The aunt was delighted with the rice with friend plantains and praised the bean dish to the heavens," (Esquivel, 221). As this quote shows, Tita did successfully impress Aunt Mary.
