It's hard for me to remain neutral about the tales and recipes of Muy Bueno. You see, their stories are my stories, just like many of us whose grandparents came from Chihuahua to Texas and beyond. But you needn't have an abuelita who blessed generations by handing down her recipes all you need is the love and spirit that Yvette, Veronica and Evangelina have filled within the pages of this book. Packed with authentic regional recipes, beautiful stories and gorgeous photographs, Muy Bueno is above all else a delicious family love story. --Matt Armendariz, MattBites.com and author of On a Stick!
"If you love Mexican comfort food and fantastic photography, you need Muy Bueno on your kitchen bookshelf!" --Jorge Bravo, founder of HispanicKitchen.com

"Charming family stories combined with richly colorful photos to make this a delightful invitation to cooking" --Michelle Kayal, Associated Press
"Every page invites the reader to step into the richness of Mexican culture, defined by exquisite food and lots of love. To see family recipes both traditional and contemporary recreated with so much care is a joy. I personally look forward to making Muy Bueno's recipes for my own family. --Nina Terrero, Entertainment Weekly

In the beginning, the book explains to you that the recipes are contributed by 3 generations of women. A grandmother, mother, and 2 daughters. You can tell who submitted each recipe to the book because there is an icon with each recipe, and every recipe has a little story in the beginning that tells you how it is important to their family culture/tradition. I found the entire cookbook to be utterly heart warming. I feel that every recipe included is approachable, even to the novice cook, and without ingredients that would be difficult to find. I also think it's worth noting that I have about 5 other Mexican cookbooks, but I still know that I will be cooking heavily out of this book.
Some things I just can't wait to try:
Bacon-wrapped shrimp with jalapeno
Corn in a cup (sort of like Mexican creamed corn, yum!)
Mexican shrimp cocktail (one of the best looking recipes I've seen for this)
Albondigas (Mexican meatball soup...I've been wanting to try a new recipe for this!)
Homemade chicken soup (the picture looks absolutely delicious)
Pozole rojo (Red pork and hominy stew)
Chipotle shredded pork enchiladas (stacked, not rolled...how fun!Read more ›
