When Tita was relatively free of Mama Elena and came back to take care of her, the food that Tita cooks has a peculiarity according to Mama Elena, “Mama Elena asked the doctor to lock the door and confided to him her suspicions about the bitterness of the soup,” (132) Mama Elena doesn’t know it, but the bitterness she is tasting is Tita’s pity. Tita feels sorry for her other being paralyzed and her stroke of bad luck, and is feeling that way while she prepares the food. The taste of the foods tells us how Tita feels while she is being controlled by Mama Elena and after she has already escaped from her
In the preceeding chapter where Rosaura and Pedro’s wedding takes place, Tita’s tears, which were present in the cake forces the whole congregation to fall sick. In the third chapter, the preparation of Quail in Rose Petal Soup prepared using roses that were given to Tita by Pedro as a token of love and affection generally causes a huge disturbance throughout the whole household. Thus this is a powerful foreshadow that Rosaura and Pedro’s marriage will be troubled due to the passionate force thats ever-present between Tita and Pedro. On the other hand, the occurence of this strange event does not actually depict “love” but in the real sense, is a portrayal of sexual desire.

“But they’re just so delicious!” A researcher then made Carolyn an offer: she could either eat one marshmallow right away or, if she was willing to wait while he stepped out for a few minutes, she could have two marshmallows when he returned. He said that if she rang a bell on the desk while he was away he would come running back, and she could eat one marshmallow but would forfeit the second. Then he left the room. Although
