I've never written an Amazon review before, but I have to rave about Joanne's tequila-infused cooking! Last night I was fortunate enough to hear her speak at a book signing-demonstration at the Tyler Florence store here in Mill Valley, Ca.

During the course of her presentation, some assistants were serving samples of food from the recipes in the book. When I tasted Joanne's GUACAMOLE SOUP I was F L O O R E D! It was just sublime. Buy the book if for no other reason than to get that recipe!

All hyperbole aside, Joanne knows her tequila and she knows how to create a tasty but DOABLE recipe that brings out the best in the liquor and the food ingredients. I'm a die-hard fan from now on.

Wow. I did not know that Tequila was not aged until the soldiers on the front during the Civil War ran out of Whiskey, and the Mexicans brought Tequila in to satisfy their thirst, then took the empty Whiskey barrels back to Mexico, thus giving us Anejo (aged Tequila). I now have a newfound respect for Blanco as well. Not only do you get a history of the spirit, but also the author's insight during a trek to Tequila country (she's quite charming). Moroever, there are some delightful drinks and food recipes, all with Tequila. This book was light and educational at the same time. It's perfect.

I have a lot of tequila afficionado friends and I thought this beautifully photographed book would be a good intro for me. Turns out, it's the perfect combination of interesting information, history, tequila lore, manufacturing info, great recipes, pretty much everything I was curious about. I've tried the cocktail recipes and several of the food recipes and they were all keepers. In particular, the classic Margarita, Mexican Spaghetti and Meatballs, Tequila Coconut Cupcakes have all made it into my permanent rotation as all three were BIG hits at a recent party I had. I really loved this book and even my tequila snob friends for whom I bought copies, said they learned a lot of things about Tequila that they didn't know. A terrific book!

I was excited to get this book to gain further knowledge into tequila while getting recipes. After going through the book I felt it was good but didn't really live up to what I was expecting. I thought it gave a good overview of tequila (background, style, etc) but nothing that I didn't already know upon internet articles.

There some nice cocktail and food recipes but overall I felt many were with unique ingredients that aren't household and/or hard to find in your normal supermarket.

So in the end I think its a good book but not any information you can't find on your own and the recipes may be more complex than expected.

First let me preface this review with I'm not an expert on Tequila just a fan/collector of sorts. Possibly my search for a Tequila reference book is flawed. Utilizing the average customer review rating as a gauge of the quality of any book I suppose is not the way to go.

I only recieved this book yesterday and I am already done. Not because I'm a speed reader and it was such a great read that I couldn't put it down; it's because this is simply not a book about Tequila. Sure it has a short ancedote on the origins of Tequila and three paragraphs on the different types of Tequila, but this book falls short in satisfying a real Tequila fan.

Seriously, there are only maybe six real pages of text in the entire book. The remaining portion of the book is essentially a "cook book" of sorts and a couple of cocktail recipes, which the discription really makes it sound like that portion of the book is an extra/add on when in reality the add-on is the so called 'history of Tequila'

Just a bit disappointed. Lesson Learned

Great book for the beginner(my wife) and expert(myself) tequila drinker or anyone just interested in different liquors. Gives a great review on everything that goes into making tequila, how to drink it, different types, some great eclectic recipes made with...get this, Tequila. Def. worth the price and makes a great gift for any boozer you know(my wife).

With the book divided into three sections: Tequila, Cocktails, and Bites to go with the cocktails, it's a lovely little book. Found Joanne Weir on a local PBS television station and have now set about procuring each of her books.
