SMO­KE AND SPI­RI­TUA­LITY

Excelencias Gourmet - - Especial -

We're mind­ful of the fact that the ori­gin and his­tory of to­bac­co are in the New World. Ac­cor­ding to anth­ro­po­lo­gi­cal fin­dings, the plant was used as part of re­li­gious ce­re­mo­nies lin­ked to pea­ce, ma­gic and cu­res. To­bac­co was clo­sely re­la­ted to cos­mo­logy and re­li­gious cults prac­ti­ced by Cu­ban abo­ri­gi­nals. Gi­ven the su­per­na­tu­ral va­lues ensh­ri­ned in this plant, its bi­llo­wing smo­ke used to be of­fe­red to the gods in a bid to ex­tol them and help them cha­se ma­lign fee­lings away.
