At last, a cookbook that brings Mexican food within easy reach: named to Food & Wine Magazineâ€™s Yearâ€™s 25 Best Cookbooks as part of its annual Best of the Best cookbook.In his previous books, Rick Bayless transformed America's understanding of Mexican cuisine, introducing authentic dishes and cooking methods as he walked readers through Mexican markets and street stalls. As much as Rick loves the bold flavors of Mexican foods, he understands that preparing many Mexican specialties requires more time than most of us have. Mexican Everyday is written with the time sensitivities of modern life in mind. It is a collection of 90 full-flavored recipesâ€”like Green Chile Chicken Tacos, Shrimp Ceviche Salad, Chipotle Steak with Black Beansâ€”that meet three criteria for "everyday" food: 1) most need less than 30 minutes' involvement; 2) they have the fresh, clean taste of simple, authentic preparations; and 3) they are nutritionally balanced, full-featured mealsâ€”no elaborate side dishes required. Companion to a thirteen-part public television series, this book provides dishes you can eat with family and friends, day in and day out.
