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

Review

"Linda Bladholm's very complete guide whould travel well. It's a great resource for the new and more experienced Latin cook." --Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger Chefs-owners of Border Grill and Ciudad

"There's nothing I enjoy more than plunging into one of Miami's many latin markets with Linda at my side--and now you can, too, wherever you live. Her carefully researched, clearly presented information will let you shop with confidence. And her charming and enthusiastic approach will make it fun. This indispensable guide will turn your trepidation into delight." --Kathy Martin, Food Editor, The Miami Herald

"Renaissance Books and writer/chef Linda Bladholm have arrived with the culinary cavalry--The Asian Grocery Store Dmystified, The Indian Grocery Store Demystified, and Latin & Carribbean Grocery Stores Demystytified. These first three titles in the publishes "Take It With You" Guides give fledgling cooks the courage and info they need to load up on their shopping carts at ethnic markets....The Los Angeles Times named The Asian Grocery Store Demystified as one of the Ten Best Cookbooks for 1999, and the New York Times calld it 'a book that takes you by the hand and gives you a clear and fascinating tour of these markets.'" --Publishers Weekly

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.
