From the Inside Flap
Earthy, magical, and utterly charming, this tale of family life in turn-of-the-century Mexico became a best-selling phenomenon with its winning blend of poignant romance and bittersweet wit. The classic love story takes place on the De la Garza ranch, as the tyrannical owner, Mama Elena, chops onions at the kitchen table in her final days of pregnancy. While still in her mother's womb, her daughter to be weeps so violently she causes an early labor, and little Tita slips out amid the spices and fixings for noodle soup. This early encounter with food soon becomes a way of life, and Tita grows up to be a master chef. She shares special points of her favorite preparations with listeners throughout the story.
The Spanish language edition of the best-selling "Like Water For Chocolate is a remarkable success in its own right. Now, in this mass market edition, thousands of new readers will be able to partake in the sumptuous, romantic, and hilarious tale of Tita, the terrific cook with an extra special something in her sauce.

Pensaba leerlo con mis estudiantes pero lo pondría como "PG-13" porque tiene contenido sexual, y mis estudiantes (6o y 7o grado) son jóvenes para esto.
Adoro el libro. Incorpora recetas con lo que ocurre con la vida de la protagonista. Muy buen libro si buscas entretenimiento y sobre la cultura antigua de Mexico.
