Reading and desserts have always marked my life. I am a tireless reader, and I am unavoidably attracted by sweets. Macondo is the fictitious city of “One Hundred Years of Solitude”, the major work by Gabriel García Márquez, which earned him the Nobel Prize. In that city, where it was always raining, there are several protagonists with idiosyncratic personalities, whose entangled lives were precariously balanced between sadness and happiness – emotions that enhance the intensity of life and perhaps dictate its rhythms.
The novel is interpreted in a mouth-watering terrine of very sweet chocolate, topped with bright-coloured sauces and very fine ice cream. A symphony of colours and flavours, which are at once destabilising (causing sadness) and enveloping (bringing happiness).
