Once again Marilyn Tausend does not disappoint! I own the Spanish edition of this book and have given the English edition to friends visiting Mexico and wanted a "real authentic Mexican cuisine" cookbook. She does a great job on explaining the traditions and festivities that go hand-in-hand with a lot of foods in Mexico. The Christmas punch is a family favorite served annually at our Posadas and Christmas meals. (Recipe tip: remove the seeds from the Guavaba fruit before adding to the punch.)

Even if you don't relish roasting and peeling a Poblano Chili, just reading the recipes and looking at the tantalizing photographs will make your taste buds tingle. This book is so beautiful, it would even look lovely on your coffee table. Mrs. Tausend's work, replete with interesting historical explanations, is a true portrayal of Mexico's rich cuisine and culture. If this book is not enough for you, then I recommend that you accompany Mrs. Tausend on one of her wonderful culinary trips to various parts of Mexico for a "hands on" experience of Mexico and its unparalled cuisine.

Favorite cooking tip: many of the Mexican chili salsas can be made in large batches and then frozen in smaller portions for use at a later time.

Format: Hardcover
Every cookbook should be loaded with pictures like this one is. This book has a great sampling of dishes from all over Mexico, and helpful substitutions for hard to find ingredients. Not only are the recipes great, but the history behind the dishes are interesting also. I found most of the recipes require a lot of preparation time, however that is due more to the nature of Mexican cooking. I haven't found a bad recipe yet in the whole book.

Beautiful, authentic, mouth-watering, incredible--and that just describes the pictures! An incredible sampling of classic Mexican cuisine from many different levels reflecting the essential character of the people and their wonderful culture. In fact, the true irony is that authentic Mexican food is as complex in its origens as are its people. The result nevertheless is nothing short of extraordinary. These magical recipes are relatively easy to duplicate with ingredients easily available if you look.
