Following the great success of her first two cookbooks - The Cuisines of Mexico and The Tortilla Book - Diana Kennedy decided to return to Mexico to settle permanently. In the course of finding the ideal location for the ecological house and gastronomic center she plans to build, she traveled extensively throughout Mexico and soon began to assemble this book, which is a companion volume to Cuisines of Mexico.
She found the cooks who contributed most of these recipes in both likely and wildly unlikely places. The famous cookes of the various regions were fairly easy for her to locate, but she also discovered some extraordinary cooks in the markets, at the shore, and even preparing an elaborate barbecue in the middle of a field.
There are 120 completely new recipes included in this collection, with 20 illustrations.
