These DVDs are refreshingly different from the usual cooking videos, and I am giving all three of them the same comments and 5-star rating. The lively traditional Mexican music that plays with the opening menu makes you want to dance! Then, as you select each recipe from the menu, you find a series of step-by-step photos (of the food, not the cook) with narration that follows precisely the instructions contained in the accompanying recipe booklet. It makes it SO easy to learn - without all the distraction of chit-chat in a fancy kitchen! Love it!

I was expecting to watch the recipes being cooked but instead the DVD consists of just photos and a voice over. Unlike the previous reviewer I wasn't impressed by the music and found the whole experience a drag. There are only a couple of recipes contained on the DVD, so as you're only looking at photos you'd be far better off buying a book. This DVD seems to have been produced with minimal effort and could have so much better. It doesn't engage with the viewer at all.
