Talavera History
The name and roots of Talavera is reflected in the authentic Spanish and Mexican pottery you'll spot adorning various spaces inside the restaurant. This refined pottery's origins date back to the 16th century. Master potters from Spain were invited by Dominican monks to teach the local Puebla people in Mexico how to create this unique earthenware made from black and white clay found in the region. It can take over six months to create one piece of pottery from start to finish. This pottery is so rare that only nine workshops in Puebla today are certified to make it. Talavera Cocina Mexicana is the only one of the Mexican restaurants located in Coral Gables where you will be able to see this exquisite pottery firsthand.
