Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Foods from directly south of the Rio Grande, as well as the broader world of Latin American and the Caribbean, have become dominant forces in North America. Latin American restaurants and groceries have sprung up everywhere with peoples' migration northward, but shoppers unfamiliar with the varieties of produce, dairy products, and meats displayed on the shelves now have a superior guide to help them negotiate these stores' aisles. With Latin & Caribbean Grocery Stores Demystified, Linda Bladholm opens up new worlds of flavor to North American shoppers. Mark Knoblauch

Format: Paperback
Linda Bladholm, a Miami chef and food columnist, provides a handy shopping guide for ethnic markets with 400 entries and over 200 illustrations. Part One covers the basics, including a chapter on Latin culture and cooking as well as seven chapters detailing key ingredient classes. Staples are described (alternate names are provided) as well as suggestions for using them. Part Two addresses items for cuisines by country or region: Mexico, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela, the Caribbean and Afro-Caribbean. Sidebars include fun food facts. There is an index and four appendices on equipment, cooking techniques, 25 recipes, and mail order sources

A very nice guide to have with you that is divided up in an easy to read sensible way. It covers not just the food but some of the differences in foods of the cuisine of different countries.
