During the course of her presentation, some assistants were serving samples of food from the recipes in the book. When I tasted Joanne's GUACAMOLE SOUP I was F L O O R E D! It was just sublime. Buy the book if for no other reason than to get that recipe!
All hyperbole aside, Joanne knows her tequila and she knows how to create a tasty but DOABLE recipe that brings out the best in the liquor and the food ingredients. I'm a die-hard fan from now on.
I only recieved this book yesterday and I am already done. Not because I'm a speed reader and it was such a great read that I couldn't put it down; it's because this is simply not a book about Tequila. Sure it has a short ancedote on the origins of Tequila and three paragraphs on the different types of Tequila, but this book falls short in satisfying a real Tequila fan.
Seriously, there are only maybe six real pages of text in the entire book. The remaining portion of the book is essentially a "cook book" of sorts and a couple of cocktail recipes, which the discription really makes it sound like that portion of the book is an extra/add on when in reality the add-on is the so called 'history of Tequila'
Just a bit disappointed. Lesson Learned
There some nice cocktail and food recipes but overall I felt many were with unique ingredients that aren't household and/or hard to find in your normal supermarket.
So in the end I think its a good book but not any information you can't find on your own and the recipes may be more complex than expected.
something a little different than a coffee table book
we enjoy it and our friends love flipping through it when they come over
great ideas and photos-the photos were definitely a plus
