"Daisy Martinez will make a lot of people, but particularly my wife, Gloria, happy with these Latin dishes." -- Chef Jacques PÉpin
"Daisy was a great student, but in this book she proves herself to be a great teacher as well. These recipes are warm, inviting, and intelligent...just like that young, vivacious student!" -- Dorothy Cann Hamilton, founder and CEO of The French Culinary Institute
"Passion, tradition, flavor, and, most important, love -- those are Daisy's main ingredients, and you find them in every dish! From the first recipe I tried (Spicy Pineapple Vinegar!) to the latest (Fava Beans with Serrano Ham and Cream!), Daisy just propels me into the kitchen and makes me want to invite people over." -- Ted Allen, host of Chopped on the Food Network
"To dine at her home is to witness and taste one of America's premier Latino-American chefs. Well, lucky for us, she has created a book with those same home recipes that will take you right back to your home cooking!" -- Chef Art Smith, bestselling author and humanitarian
"Daisy has captured the true spirit of Latin-American cuisine and injected it with a powerful punch." -- Ivy Stark, executive chef of Dos Caminos

That said this book is for anyone that wants to change up the same old routine! Enjoy!
I hope the other recipes I have tagged don't leave critical info out so I can help salvage my 3-star rating which I leave as is until I give other recipes a fair chance.Read more ›
What I didn't like was recipes starting at the bottom of the page and then continuing on the next page. You were flipping pages back and forth while preparing dinner and it was just awkward. Not many pictures at all. I made the grilled skirt steak with chimichurri sauce and there wasn't nearly enough sauce for the 4 steaks. You'd have to double if not triple the recipe to get the necessary amount of sauce. I liked the recipes but every single one I had to change, alter, add. I would suggest sticking with her first book. This one is OK, but the first book is so much better.
This new book. I don't know. I know I won't use it as often as the first. She looks like a Soccer Mom, now, and she uses shortcuts in some of the recipes (Minute rice!)
I say, DAISY!. get back to your roots and teach us more of the authentic latin cuisines you know. I've got your old sofrito bagged in my freezer in 1/2 cup portions. And I loved the themesong to your first series. Takes a good half hour to get it out of my mind after each episode. First cookbook was nominated for prestigious awards, and it deserved them. Get back to that state of mind and I'll give your next book a try, but not without checking it out in person at a brick and mortar store before ordering online. Please return to the basics of Latin cooking and make us follow you, not you follow American ingredients. I love you Daisy! You should definitely be up there with Rick Bayless, considering your wonderful Latino upbringing.
