Helpful Score: 1
I loved this book. It is filled with history of Mexican food from one family from the 1800's to present day with pictures of family and interesting tales of more than just food. If you don't cook anything else in it definately do the Chiles en Frio Rellenos de Cameron (Chiles Stuffed with Shrimp).
A very good book about Mexican culture from the mid-1800s to now, through the author's family members, particularly the women, and the food. The women wrote down many of their recipes, and the author focuses alot on Mexican cuisine based on these recipes. The recipes sound delicious-many are shared throughout the book. Also includes sources at the end to find some of the food/ingredients that may not be available in certain areas.
