Review

"Grab a glass of wine, sit on your favorite couch, and get ready to embark on a great culinary tale..." -- Thomas Keller, Chef and author, The French Laundry Cookbook

About the Author

Rafael Antonio Nazario was at the forefront of the California culinary revolution in the early 80's as the much-lauded chef and creative force of Hugo's, one of the pioneer restaurants that featured gourmet take-out and a fine foods market. Clientele included the rich and famous as well as many of Los Angeles' top chefs, W. Puck, Mark Peel, Joaquim Splichal, et al. He left cooking to pursue other interests, only to reappear as one of L.A.’s premiere wine and spirits consultants at Tony Bill's and [the late] Dudley Moore's fabled 72 Market St., in Venice, California –where he was also the resident pianist.

He has released the critically acclaimed CD "Patria Añorada" (Amazon ISBN 673627073025) a collection of original songs encompassing a variety of Latin music genres, a CD which Rafael not only wrote and composed, but also produced and arranged.

Format: Paperback
There must be a million cookbooks to buy, and many of us have a good number of them. Nazario has put together a true work of love. The book not only has wonderful, seductive recipes, but also embraces the reader's heart with personal stories. Recipes are fun to read, and Nazario shows you how to make them as a close friend would. His work reveals deep talents from cooking to teaching to entertaining. My guess is that he would be more fun to watch and learn from than many of the celebrity chefs we regularly see on television. I recommend that anyone who loves food should get this cookbook and immediately make his polenta. It is a revelation, and introduces polenta to a level that you may not have know existed. You won't stop trying his recipes after this one! The chef is obviously one who truly understands how different foods, seasonings and techniques work together. More importantly, as a reader, it gets passed to us. All of us would-be chefs dream of achieving the holy connection with food that great chefs have, and this book will shed light on the path to get there and entertain you at the same time. Get this cookbook? Sure, but don't just put it in your collection. Start cooking!

I came across this book at Daquiri Dicks in Puerto Vallarta after eating a fantastic meal there. These recipes are all winners. This book is so entertaining, I read it for enjoyment! Rafael takes the reader carefully and with care through each recipe, never assuming we know too much, nor condesending as though we don't. The recipes are simple, and simply wonderful. I have friends and party-goers begging for these recipes (little do they know where I got them) , and unless they read this, they never will!

I read this book expecting I would find a high-browed treatise of sorts... froo-froo food and what not. Instead, I was blown away by the simplicity, the very personal feel of the text and the food contained within the pages of the book. I have since come to learn Rafael's music is very similar in that it has the feel of a heartfelt and personal search, a kind of looking [and finding] himself that is very inviting.

Format: Paperback
in this book and totally love it! I actually helped with the print production as the book was going to press and so was obligated to read it. However, I am the owner of over 200 cookbooks and feel totally qualified to state that this book is a "must have." The essays alone are worth the purchase! The recipes are varied, not just Mexican cuisine but Asian-inspired and European as well, and range from the basics (Sopa de Tortilla) to exotic appetizers (Spicy Yellow Prawns.) My favorite chapter is the chapter on Pastas. Don't miss the essay on why "Making Pasta is a Lot Like Making Love." Rafael is a wonderful chef and humorist. Also, if you are ever in Puerto Vallarta, do not miss Daquiri Dick's. You can actually taste many of these recipes first-hand. Some of my favorites and ones I've actually tasted: Romesco (they served it with an asparagus/prociutto appetizer,) House Caesar Dressing, Green Pozole of Duck, Rigatoni Pablano, Lobster Tacos, Grilled Black Cod over Cous-Cous with a Tequila-Citrus Sauce.

I have bought many cookbooks in my life long affair with cooking and food. This cookbook is different, it is unique in that is makes you fall in love with cooking and food again. Rafael has a wonderful way of pulling you in to his food essays in each chapter. The essay on Pasta is so wonderful, I find I read it just to give myself a smile. The recipes seem like they are an accumulation of many years of cooking and a love of food. Buy this cookbook and don't hide it in your cookbook shelf, put it by your sofa, your bedside or anyplace where you will read and get inspired to read, laugh, cook and eat with joy again.
