Book Description

Spice up your soups and add some zest to the rest! Mexican Cooking For Dummies can inspire your cooking, improve your Spanish, and give you that south-of-the-border soul. Chefs Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken have attempted to reign in their vast knowledge of Mexican food and present it in that familiar ...For Dummies style that you've come to appreciate. Discover their wide array of standard Mexican ingredients. From avocados to epazote, they give you the hints and friendly advice you'll need in order to select the best ingredients for your meals.

Packed with more than 100 recipes, Mexican Cooking For Dummies covers a wide array of dishes, drinks, and appetizers. Master the simple dishes, such as tortas and tacos, while washing them down with horchata or sangria. Soon, you'll be hosting your own fiestas, starting your guests off with salsas and ceviches before moving on to the main dish. Will it be the cumin-and-chile-marinated skirt steak or the baked salmon in salsa verde? Either way, you're sure to impress!

The authors cover the staples (such as rice, beans, tortillas, and vegetables) and then guide you on a discovery tour that includes traditional moles and menudos. Save some room for the wide selection of desert recipes. Pick up Mexican Cooking For Dummies, and in no time, you'll be swinging spicy cilantro-covered dishes out of your kitchen and making your guests shout "Ole!"

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed April 3, 2000
By Ed
Format:Paperback
Having read numerous Mexican cookbooks and numerous "forDummies" books, I expected more.
Specifically:
o An emphasison the basics: kitchen equipment, herbs and spices, preparation methods, cooking techniques. And with adaquate illustrations;
o Some semblence of recipe organization. Recipes seem like a hodge-podge collection, with a less-than-effective 'theme/chapter' organization. END

This book is somewhat disappointing. There are not enough recipes. There is too much commentary.
