5.0 out of 5 stars Our favorite cookbook, January 22, 2012
This review is from: Mesa Mexicana (Hardcover)
15 years ago my boyfriend gave me this cookbook as a Valentine's Day present on our first Valentine's Day together. Needless to say I thought it was a bit presumptuous to give me a cookbook after just a few months together. However, after making the swordfish ceviche, I was completely sold. (By the way, we'll be celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary in a few months!). It continues to be our favorite cookbook. The quinoa salad is our absolute favorite (and loved by our kids) and is what I bring to almost every potluck we go to. Invariably, everybody at the party wants the recipe. Every time I serve the clam and corn chowder for a dinner party, the guests ask for the name of the cookbook and many have gone and bought the book based on this wonderful soup! Cooking a Mesa Mexicana recipe does require a lot of chopping, but that's because every recipe is full of wonderful, fresh vegetables and chiles and you can definitely taste it in the resulting meal. The chopped salad is especially daunting (leave yourself plenty of time), but quite possibly the best salad I've ever had! I continue to try new recipes from this book, and, so far, have never been disappointed.

If you like fresh vegetables and chiles, salsas, salads, and wonderful soups, then this cookbook is a must-have.
