"It's about time we had a resource to help wade through all of the different Spanish and Latin American foods that are appearing in grocery stores and on menus around the country. Lourdes Castro is an ideal guide for anyone interested in broadening their culinary horizon."
—Mitchell Davis, vice president of the James Beard Foundation and author of Kitchen Sense
"It is with great pleasure that I endorse Eat, Drink, Think in Spanish
. Lourdes seems to have her finger on the Latin pulse with this dictionary. This is the perfect guide to the rich culinary diversity that exists in Spain and Latin America."
—Cristina Saralegui, journalist and host of El show de Cristina
and one of Time
's "25 Most Influential Hispanics in America"
"Our food culture is suffused with elements from Latin America and Spain, yet so many food-loving Americans are left out of the fun by not understanding the terminology. This book will change all that by illuminating nuanced details across a wide range of cuisines. I am wildly enthusiastic about Lourdes Castro's Eat, Drink, Think in Spanish
—David Rosengarten, author of The Dean & DeLuca Cookbook
