This is a great addition to your cooking library for those that are interested in spicing up their culinary repertoire! Whats great about he WS "Essentials" collection is that they also add in a wealth of information about the cuisine and ingredients of local regions, which is good for those people that don't just want a "recipe book" but that really want to know more about what makes latin-cooking special. Another nice thing about this collection is that nearly every recipe, if not all recipes, have a picture tied to them. I am a person that really finds it annoying when a recipe does not include a picture; how do I know of something looks good if I cannot see it? This book delivers on the high quality photos and beautiful settings.

The recipe selection from the book is very good; even though when most people think of "Latin" food, they think of Mexican cuisine (I did!), the book tries very hard to include recipes from other latin regions, like central America, South America, and the Caribbean. With so much ground to cover, the book only gets "skin-deep" with some of the dishes; for example, you will only find a handful (maybe 4-5) recipes that can be directly ascribed to "Cuban" cuisine. Still, the recipes that it does provide for a region are most likely the ones you would be interested in preparing, and given that it only has so many pages and so much regional-cuisine ground to cover, I think that this book delivers.

So far, I have only made one thing from here, and that was the Chilaquiles with Chile-Salsa Rojo (or something like that). The recipe was easy to follow, the instructions were perfectly clear, and it tasted great!

This is by far one of the BEST Latin cookbooks!I saw it at a friends house and knew I had to order it.Arrived quickly. I was eager to start using it.Beautiful close up photographs of the dishes, well written,easy to understand and most of the items called for were in my pantry.Have made several of the recipes the first week, not disappointed. I have many cookbooks but this one stays out on the counter, as I use it almost daily!My son in law is Colombian and said the recipes are true to taste.Page 145 has an excellent Grilled steak with parsley-garlic Chimichurri.I substituted skirt steaks for the New York Strip steaks,and used fresh lime juice instead of red wine vinegar in the Chimichurri sauce. Looking forward to trying every recipe in the book!

I echo everything else the previous reviewer wrote--color pictures, simple directions, and not-too-specialized ingredients means this is a wonderful addition to any cook's collection. I lived in Argentina for a year, have traveled for a month in the Andes, and a few weeks each in three Central American countries. These recipes taste exactly like the meals I remember from my time abroad and I'm so glad to be able to share them with my family.
