From Nicolle, founder: The Story of Delicacies

The idea for Delicacies came to me in a dream. A fever dream, to be exact, the result of a bout with Dengue Fever — a rather common ailment in tropical climates, including Yucatán, Mexico, where I have been living on and off for the last 12 years. On that particular morning in November 2013, I was visited by a vision. I saw so clearly the tiny, elegant head of garlic, shining brightly on leather, fastened around my wrist (nothing like this has never happened to me before. I don’t walk around dazed by epiphanies).

I grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota, loving spring and summer and its delicious bounty: pick-’em-and-eat-’em raspberries and strawberries, panfried, freshly-caught walleye, perfectly-ripe tomatoes, and sweet corn, knee-high by the Fourth of July. Minnesota winters, however, were a different story—which is why my husband, daughter and I started spending the snowy months in Merida, Mexico, and now live there almost full-time.

Before Delicacies, I worked in media relations for 18 years. I am a mom to a beautiful 13-year-old daughter who is growing up in Mexico but loves her Minnesota summers as much as I do. My supportive husband (and partner in Delicacies) John, has worked with Andrew Zimmern, food lover, adventurer and host of Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods, for the past 15 years. We have always been passionate about food — but through our experiences, and Andrew’s influence — we’ve started thinking about food in a new way.

Food is a way of knowing ourselves and relating to others. It’s a lens through which we see the world; a principle to organize the chaos, the noise, the suffering, the joys and rituals and everyday adventures. We can connect with different cultures through food, and afterwards realize that we aren’t so different after all. For all of us everywhere, the conversations we have over a communal meal bring meaning and order and joy to our lives.

Delicacies is a dream that I am so excited to realize. I love the idea of ingredients as pretty, wearable tokens that bring us home, in an instant, wherever we need to be. Delicacies is about finding your center, with food as your guide. It’s about honoring and respecting simple ingredients, and recognizing a bit of ourselves in them. We are food lovers, story tellers, knowledge gatherers on a long journey. I hope you’ll come along.

Frequently asked questions

How do I care for the leather? Silver?

Our sterling ingredients and clasps are rhodium plated, so they shouldn’t tarnish. However, all sterling silver has the capacity to tarnish over time. The amount of tarnishing (oxidization) that occurs is dependent on the wearer.

Jewelry polishing cloths can permanently smudge the strap; silver polish may alter its color. A blunted chopstick covered with part of a cloth is a neat and effective way to shine your charms, while a soft, dry cloth is best for cleaning the leather strap.

Your wise old aunt may have told you to simply clean your silver in a mild dishwasher soap solution. However! Because the charms are indivisible from the luscious leather straps we must caution against this method. Water and leather don’t mix.
