An authentic mexican cookbook.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Essential Cuisines of Mexico: Revised and Updated Throughout, with More Than 30 New Recipes (Paperback)
This cookbook holds all the classic mexican dishes. Its not Texmex and it contains no photos, its like the oldfashioned cookbooks our grandmothers had - its simply authentic mexican recipes at its best!
Diana Kennedy has also written "The art of mexican cooking" which gives a thoroughly introduction into the mexican cuisine, and I would recomend you to get that tittle as well. How ever the "Essential cuisines of Mexico" has more recipes.
If you really want to know how to cook true mexican food, then get them both. If you are serious about it then you wont regret it. But beware that outside of Mexico the ingredients can be difficult to obtain. And you do need to get the correct ingridients if you want to get a real authentic food experience! =)
