Editorial Reviews

Review

El Norte: The Cuisine Of Northern Mexico celebrates the cuisine of the north, the "other" Mexico. One these pages are a comprehensive array of dishes from a style of cooking which favors broiling and beef and flour tortillas, and a perhaps unexpected variety of seafood entrees and simple but elegant home-style dishes. Familiarity with the many subtleties of this cuisine is certain to enhance the pleasures of the table. For all their variety and distinction, these recipes are amazingly easy to prepare, using ingredients that are readily available. There are wonderful recipes for drinks, sauces, appetizers, soups, salads & vegetables, tortillas & bread, rice & beans, meats, poultry, seafood, light meals & snacks, sandwiches, desserts & sweets. One appendices is dedicated to "Entertaining with Northern Mexican Cuisine", another appendices is on "Nutrition & Northern Mexican Cuisine". El Norte is perfect for anyone who enjoys the preparation and consumption of Mexican food! -- Midwest Book Review

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Ezequiel Perez on August 19, 2002
Format: Paperback
This cookbook does a great job of presenting Northern Mexican cooking -- until I came across this book, I'd found the choice was between cookbooks that concentrated on the more exotic South (e.g. Oaxaca, Veracruz, and the Yucatan), the Mexican American experience (e.g. Cocina de la Familia), or Tex Mex ... not a whole lot on Sonora, Chihuahua and Coahuila.
The book is attractively laid out, with well written recipes that make me want to fire up the grill and get cooking each time I leaf through it. Also, the book starts with a very handy no nonsense introduction to chiles and other essential ingredients which should appeal to folks who've had no luck securing a steady supply of epazote or huitlacoche.
This book now sits on my kitchen bookshelf alongside books by Diana Kennedy and Zarela Martinez ... unlike a few others by better know writers, that have gone the way of garage sales ;-)

7 of 9 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on April 29, 1997
Format: Paperback
The book is a work of art. Drawings, photos in black-and-white of chefs and their kitchens enhance the recipes. Most attractive are twelve color plates of foods one could die for, made from recipes in the book. If you want one beautiful book about Mexican food and how to prepare it authentically, get El Norte.

Sr. Peyton emphasizes the simplicity and diversity of the ranch country cuisine of northern Mexico. Interestingly and satisfyingly different from the mainstream.
