Cartagena is a place with a rich culinary tradition, filled with history, glamour and Caribbean spices. Mariana had the honor to work on the re-edition of Teresita Roman’s epic cookbook Cartagena de Indias en la Olla, an epic 3000 recipe cookbook originally written in the 1960’s. For this new edition Mariana collaborated with Sergio Londono, Teresita Roman’s grandson on selecting 200 of the best recipes and photographing the creations with new light. She wrote about her experience styling this iconic book and working alongside photographer Quentin Bacon for Diners magazine.
