Essential Cuisines of Mexico by Diana Kennedy

Essential Cuisine of Mexico by Diana Kennedy

A great combination of three of her popular cookbooks, "The Cuisines of Mexico", "The Tortilla Book" and "Mexican Regional Cooking."

Variety

Rather than focusing on one region or one style of cooking (baking, grilling, stove-top etc.) this cookbook has over 300 different recipes from all over Mexico made with just about every cooking method. This variety ensures everyone can find recipes suited to their tastes and cooking equipment.

Authenticity

Diana spent much time in Mexico and learned a lot from the people. These recipes are tried and true traditional Mexican dishes. Any cook would be glad to have an opportunity to experience cooking authentic Mexican cuisine.

Make it a gift
