OMG, I am a convert! 16 Sept. 2013
By Guam Recipes and Guam Book-Author Paula Quinene - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
**CURRENT UPDATES TOWARD THE BOTTOM OF THIS REVIEW**

I attended Sandra's class at A Southern Season in Chapel Hill, NC, two days ago. The dishes she made for class were all delicious...so much so that I made some today and will make more tomorrow. In class, the alfajores cookies, or dulce de leche sandwich cookies, were my absolute fave followed by the sopes with chorizo and the cream and cheese corn. Though the sopes were fried, they did not feel heavy or oily. On the contrary, when filled, the flavors and textures were excellent!

The recipes I made today -- crazy corn, yucca salad and avocado-tomatillo taco truck sauce -- tasted exactly like they did in class. Tomorrow, I plan to finish making the alfajores cookies and the sopes de papa y chorizo.

While I usually prefer my corn plain -- not even with butter -- this elotes locos, or crazy corn, from Latin America, is amazing! I would only make this corn once in a while because it is an indulgence. I actually cut each cob in half crosswise then skewered each half for smaller servings -- then perhaps you can have the corn more often, hahaha.

The book itself is beautifully done -- thorough sneak peek into Latin street foods, gorgeous pictures, very well written, nicely organized and helpful tips.

Sandra was quite friendly, informative, funny and engaging in class -- attributes that are essential to providing her students with a happy and memorable experience.

I'll post pictures, if Amazon still provides this service, and more reviews of other recipes that I try from the book.

If you want delicious food with intense flavors and recipe components you can make ahead of time -- a valuable asset for busy folks and those who like to entertain -- then this book is for you! I would get the book just for the alfajores, sopes and corn recipes!!!

*****SEPTEMBER 21, 2013*****
Oh gosh, next time I'll do a video review -- just noticed that! Multiple reviews by the same user are not allowed, so I'll keep editing this one as I try the recipes in the book.

I made the sopes and alfajores last week and they both turned out as delicious as the dishes prepared in class!!!!!

I do have a few notes on baking the alfajores, since all ovens behave differently: (1) I nested two exact, half-sheet pans so the bottoms of the cookies didn't darken too much, (2) I placed a sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil on the top rack so the tops of the cookies didn't brown too much, and (3) I wrapped the dulce de leche filling in plastic wrap, cut off one end of the excess plastic then inserted the cut end of the wrapped mound of filling into a prepared cake decorating bag -- made for easier application of filling and cleanup.

I found that if I cooled the baked cookies in the pan for 5 minutes, they came off much more easily on the parchment paper I had. If you fill the cookies then wait at least four hours, the cookie discs themselves absorb moisture from the filling and become more melt-in-your-mouth than if you eat the cookies immediately after filling them. Finally, if you accidentally bake the cookies too long and they are brown/hard/crisp, just fill them and wait at least four hours; mine (first batch in the oven) softened and were still delicious.

I don't fry much, but the next time I do, it's going to be to make more sopes! The whole shebang was delicious and my entire family loved it.

I made the cheese pupusas, curtido (Latin Slaw), tomato sauce and Brazilian chocolate candies earlier this week. By gosh, I thought I would have a few favorites, but I love so many of the recipes I have tried -- about 12ish.

The tomato sauce and Latin slaw are the grand slam of the cheese pupusas! The pupusas were easy to prepare and cook. If you have left over pupusas, keep them in the fridge. When ready to eat, pop them in the toaster a couple of times at medium heat -- they are just as good as when first cooked. Because the masa dough has not salt, it is essential you top with strong flavors -- such as the tomato sauce Sandra included and the slaw. It's the perfect trio.

The Brazilian chocolate candies are to-die-for. It's smooth with a bit of chew and melt-in-your-mouth. All you need is condensed milk, unsweetened cocoa powder, butter and sprinkles -- so simple and so delish! Now I have a go-to candy recipe when I'm in the mood for chocolate. I would say this is a very sophisticated treat that's excellent for gift-giving!

I did do a video review as I mentioned above, however it was too long to post on Amazon; it is on YouTube.

After all these dishes -- and I am looking forward to trying more -- the book is invaluable!!!

Got this book two days ago and I've made three things from it already, all fabulous. Going to try the home made tortillas today, the store ones are so bad. This delicious food needs good ones. Also have another recipe going for company tonight. Was so happy with the other things I made I'm going to make a new one for company, know it will be great.
