The final chapter also reveals whether Tita’s love for Dr. Brown or Tita’s love for Pedro will ultimately prevail. Tita describes her love for both men in vastly different terms. One man calms her while the other excites her and causes physiological changes. Ultimately, the passion and basic carnal attraction between Pedro and Tita outshines the less intense love that existed between her and Dr. Brown. However, the intensity of their passion also leads to the two lovers’ seeming demise.

The final chapter also completes the framed structure of the work. The narrator, Esperanza’s daughter, reintroduces the present day after recounting the history found in Tita’s cookbook. Readers are introduced to the legacy that the De la Garza women left after their deaths.
