Format: Hardcover
I was born in Mexico and when I had the opportunity to buy this book I started to read and I had to have it. Everything about it is just great. I have made many thing from it but my favourite recipe is Carne deshebrada en chile pasilla is simply the best book for mexican food. I have all her books but My Mexico is the one that I use the most.
Most people don't know that mexican food is not only tacos, enchiladas or guacamole we have so many other things that are just delicious.
Diana Kennedy is a great writer and some of her stories made me cry because I miss Mexico so much. I just hope she keeps writing about my beautiful country.

Check it out at the library first or buy one of her other cookbooks 30 Mar. 2001
By Travel Enthusiast - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Go to the library first and compare this with Mrs. Kennedy's other cookbooks before spending your hard-earned $. Diana has written much better books including The Art of Mexican Cooking and The Cuisines of Mexico, both of which have some photographs, mostly black and white. This cookbook has good assortment of recipes accompanied by rambling text. There are no photographs of the finished recipes to guide the novice cook with little experience in preparing Mexican cuisine. Colorful, festive presentation is an essential part of authentic Mexican Cuisine, which are best seen in color photographs. I recommend buying "Savoring Mexico" by Marilyn Tausend or "The Mexican Gourmet" by Maria Dolores Torres Yzabal. Both make beautiful gifts and also recommends where you can find the more unusual ingredients used in the recipies. (I own all 5 books mentioned here.)

Interesting for Advanced Mexican Cooks 5 Aug. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
If you're already aware that Mexican food is as close to divine as food gets, you'll enjoy this book, but most likely be a little frustrated by the lack of specific ingredients available stateside. Ms Kennedy rambles a bit, but it's all enjoyable. If you're a novice, I'd suggest her Cuisines of Mexico.

An Enjoyable Cookbook 15 July 2001
By Stephanie Manley - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I have been very pleased with my edition of My Mexico. The book is filled with so many recipes. The recipes span a wide range of Mexican cooking. She writes with great detail regarding the background of the recipes as well as giving very detailed instructions. This isn't the book filled with Tex Mex recipes that we are so often used to, but, authentic Mexican cooking. Of books produced in the recent years that cover this topic, I have enjoyed this book the most.

Diana Kennedy's books all have long-term shelf lives. 24 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is the most intensely personal of Diana Kennedy's books about authentic Mexican cooking. Critics who are not knowledgeable about this subject often complain that her recipes are too complicated. That, I believe, is an excuse for laziness. Are books on authentic and regional French, Indian, Italian, Moroccan, etc. cooking similarly criticized. That is unfair and doesn't give ample credit to the culinary richness of the many parts of Mexico. No one is more accurate and true to her subject than Diana Kennedy. Little wonder that the cookbook awards (the IACP & The Jas. Beard awards) all too often miss the point but the real and lasting award is always a book's "shelf life" and being a perpetual reference. My Mexico is not only a fine, carefully researched and accurate cookbook of Mexico's culinary complexity but an excellent, informative and interesting read.

Great Food... 3 July 2003
By Tiffany Follett - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is my first "authentic" Mexican cuisine cookbook. I'm from St. Paul, MN, where you would think there would be a serious lack of authentic Mexican food, however, the part of St. Paul I am from has a very large Latino community, the recipes in this book remind me of many meals I've had in friends homes. It is excellent if you are looking for authentic recipes and the real taste of Mexican cuisine. Fans of Taco Bell, forget it.
