The Rosetta Notebooks are published as part of an innovative project at the Mexico City restaurant led by Chef Elena Reygadas.

Each volume offers a short, incisive text written by a renowned scholar who explores aspects of food culture, health, and environmental concerns.

Chef Reygadas notes:

I’m convinced that we should also consider our work as cooks beyond its hedonistic function. In a world like ours—devastated by climate change, social inequality, systemic violence, sexism, racism, and the degradation of political life, to mention just a few of many ills—a restaurant should provide a platform for reflection and positive contributions to society.

In volume 7, a professor of media history at the University of Basel in Switzerland, Markis Krajewski, working in collaboration with Margaretha Jungling, a Swiss artist who also trained as a chef at Relae in Copenhagen, presents the outline of a proposed book. The book’s subject will be an 18-course banquet, each dish presented in a formal order and with a ceremony which has gone out of vogue in the last century.

Krajewski’s motives for reviving Baroque-era dining rituals seem closely tied to making people as conscious of the symbolism and import of what they are eating as members of the European ruling class once were.
