    Have you ever wanted to cook very good Mexican food. This book is for you. Read every page and think the hints, stories and her precise direction are good. I live close to the border and don't like the so so food in the restaurants here. Maybe they could learn some really good cooking from this book. It would sure help their bottom lines. Don't care for taco's and burritos here. Some of the ingredients are hard to find here but she tells you what you can substitute and get almost as good results Have you ever wanted to cook very good Mexican food. This book is for you.

    Hit recipes all around! Had a long weekend, and already several chiles on hand - made pork al pastor, cochinita pibil, carnitas, chicken tinga, several salsas and a few agua frescas - all fantastic!

    This cookbook touched my heart. I ate at the chef’s restaurant in Mexico City three summers ago and her food was excellent. But what moved me was her descriptions of her childhood and cooking / dining experiences with her family and hometown community. I have eaten in the same beachside palapa restaurants she references, have had beautiful homemade cooking in my grandmother’s kitchen, and have great pride in my cultural heritage. This cookbook is beautiful to look at. I look forward to cooking f This cookbook touched my heart. I ate at the chef’s restaurant in Mexico City three summers ago and her food was excellent.

    I didn't read many of the recipes in this book but they look good and healthy. I noted on one page a recipe described as being quick to assemble and there were more than 20 ingredients, which certainly is not quick in my book, but for someone more experienced and the ingredients all nearby, that would be possible. This is a good book for someone who wants to get into Mexican cooking, but seems to be beyond what a beginner would want.

This book was amazing and as a person of Mexican descent it was nice to see a look back into food that if i was currently living in Mexico would have access to. I love that they recipes are easy to follow and no weird or difficult to find ingredients. I also love that she adds instructions on how to make ahead and proper storage times.

    some of the recipes take me back, some of them introduce me to flavors I remember-cooked in ways I don't, and others are simply complex but delicious. I've learned a lot about the ingredients of my combined cultures by reading her cookbook and instructions.

    This book is more of a modern Mexican cookbook. Some recipes are authentic like the Mole, but not all of them. If you like more of a modern Mexican dish instead of authentic food like our grandmas made, then this book is for you.

    Gorgeous photos. Many, many different salsa recipes. I'm not going to cook any of these recipes, but I wish I could go to one of her restaurants. Gorgeous photos. Many, many different salsa recipes. I'm not going to cook any of these recipes, but I wish I could go to one of her restaurants.

    Great desserts, even for a beginner. The rest of this book would be better for a cook who is more experienced in Mexican cooking.

    I got a couple of interesting recipes from this book but most were very classic Mexican not very original. It's a good cookbook for those that aren't very familiar with Mexican food.
