Overview

If you have ever wanted to duplicate the food from your favorite New Mexico restaurant in your kitchen, this book is for you. Probably the most unusual southwestern cookbook ever compiled, it features an assortment of recipes as eclectic as the state's cultures, many of them contributed by well-known New Mexico chefs. The recipe for refried beans comes from Philomena's restaurant in Los Alamos: it is followed by instructions for preparing the world-famous chile served at the Owl Bar & Cafe in San Antonio. Also represented are dishes like poulet marengo from more glamorous Santa Fe restaurants such as La Tertulia and the Pink Adobe, along with such obscure regional specialties as Hobbs barbecued ribs, Silver City sausage, and Carlsbad casserole.

The book concludes with a selection of recipes donated by some of the state's best known citizens. Now you can make lentil soup the way Frank Waters does, atole a la Rudolfo Anaya, and chile rellenos in tempura batter according to the instructions provided by Roy Nakayama, New Mexico State University's world-famous chile expert. For your friends who are not lucky enough to live in New Mexico, a list of mail-order sources for New Mexico cooking supplies is included.

    Native New Mexican

    This is a fantastic cookbook for anyone that wants to experience what we natives like to eat on a daily basis. Very traditional - get this book if you want to really know what we like, not just tourist-trap stuff!

    Great Cookbook,But Not very Traditional

    I really enjoyed this book, brings back many memories of many trips to the areas of New Mexico mentioned in this book. The recipes are easy to follow and some are traditional New Mexican cuisine but not as many as I was hoping for. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone wanting something different than TexMex. Great recipes!
