'Mexican food is one of the world's great cuisines and there is no one I'd rather read on the subject than Tommi. I love her writing and the recipes in this book are wonderful too' (Tom Parker Bowles, Market Kitchen)

I also own Diana Kennedy's 'The Art of Mexican Cooking', a veritable classic, but I found this book to be a more accessible starter.
Some recipes are very quick and straightforward. Some are more involved - referencing a homemade sauce which in turn references a homemade paste for example, so more time and planning required.
Ingredients are generally very accessible but sometimes specialist ingredients are called for, notably chillies with particular flavours.
As an eBook it works very well with linked lists of recipes and in-text links.
I also love the fact that the author is telling a story about her time in Mexico, without losing focus on the food.
If you read this book, you'll learn the fundamentals of Mexican cooking pretty quickly, and impressing others with your cooking will become a piece of cake.
Oh and the Chipotles en Adobo is fruit of the gods. Have it with everything, on its own as a dip with mayo or dollop some in a chilli or in the tomato sauce and cook some meatballs in it.
It's a must buy....I want to go to Mexico !!
Having watched Thomasina's recent TV series and seeing her 'take' on Mexican food, I was wary as although her recipes are simple and look good she does put her own slant on them. I was doubly wary as I know Kindle editions of some books just don't work - basically anything other than a novel often has navigational 'challenges' and often the pictures/diagrams etc aren't included.
I'm delighted to report that both of my reservations are unfounded - the recipes work well and the Kindle book is simple and easy to use and the illustrations are there (albeit, of course, in monochrome). The facility to download and review a sample proved a godsend with this book.
