5.0 out of 5 stars accessible, delicious food, 8 Mar 2010
This review is from: Mexican Food Made Simple (Hardcover)
Until now I have always felt daunted by the idea of Mexican food. I want the food I cook to be authentic and true to the original as possible and all those complicated moles needing hours of preparation and ingredients that are not available to me have rather put me off trying. So Thomasina Miers' recipes are a revelation to me - they capture the essence of Mexican cooking with accessible ingredients and none of the fuss.

There are recipes for moles but with names like An Easy-Peasy Peanut Mole the fear factor has gone! There is an excellent introductory section to help you appreciate the various flavours of Mexican food and show you what ingredients are needed to get started.

Then follow all the delicious dishes such as Sweet and Spicy Squash and Chickpea Soup, A Classic Guacamole, heaps of variations on the tortilla, burrito, taco clan, Grilled Food Soul Food(the Great Mexican Breakfast), salsas and so on.

All the dishes have a light, fresh, very- of- the- moment flavour, irresistably must make now. An enticing, timely book, destined to be well-thumbed and decorated with kitchen splashes- the sign of an excellent cookbook.
