About the Author

Ingrid Hoffmann, originally from Colombia, developed a love for cooking as a child during the time she spent in the kitchen with her mother, a Cordon Bleu–trained chef. As a teenager, she worked in her mom’s catering and restaurant business. Upon moving to Miami, they opened a restaurant together. As host of Delicioso on Univision and Simply Delicioso on the Cooking Channel, Ingrid has become arguably the foremost Latin authority on cooking and lifestyle, and her Delicioso brand has become one of the most recognizable, trusted, and entertaining food brands for Hispanic America. In 2011, Ingrid was named Flavors of Passion Master Chef of the Year—an award that was created and designed to honor the nation’s best Latino chefs.

Format: Hardcover
Ingrid Hoffman has made a Latin cookbook with about 150 recipes that are light and healthy. Determined beginner cooks could do the recipes in these pages, the most difficult thing probably being - dealing with enchiladas and just the amount of prep (chopping and peeling) that are required. That also means that many of the dishes are using fresh food rather than just dumping things out of a can or a freezer bag. The ingredients are not all that exotic; they can probably be found at most ordinary grocery stores, including pumpkin seeds and plantains.

The book contains; a section on ingredients and healthy substitutes, breakfast dishes, appetizers, snacks and dips, soups, salads, chicken, turkey, meat, seafood, sides, drinks and desserts. Most recipes have large colour photos. The salads are especially delicious, refreshing and different.
We liked so many dishes in here and have made several each day. Examples of what we have enjoyed and that are in the book are: mango-tomatillo guacamole, classic Latin avocado and tomato salad, campfire salad, pipian chicken in acorn squash, sherry and parsley chicken, Mexican meatloaf with tequila ketchup, shrimp and scallop easy paella, rice cooked in beer, spinach and mushroom stuffed baked potatoes, blood orange beer cocktail.

The index for the recipes is done in very small print - as if they were trying to squeeze everything in on a page and a half. It also lists the recipes by name when it is much more helpful to list under categories of main ingredient. Page numbers are printed in a very light blue colour and are not always easy to see.
This is a very nice cookbook to add to your collection...for some delicious recipes, Latin recipes and some distinctive lighter healthy eating.

I've cooked a few recipes from this book and had stellar results - in fact, this book's version of Basque Chicken is better than many full-fat versions I've made. Since I have cooked an original version of many of these recipes I can see where the fat has been cut, but I also need to count carbs, and this is where the book loses a star - no nutritional info. I was surprised at how quickly many of the dishes came together - good even for weeknight cooking.
