Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Everything from soup to dessert is in this book, authentically Mexican and presented to make the foods preparation in a modem American kitchen easy and successful. Ortiz's introduction shares both her respect for Mexico and its food and her sense of fun which deserves to be a part of cooking and eating Mexican cuisine."
—Fort Wayne (Indiana) News-Sentinel

"A comprehensive sampling of authentic Mexican cuisine... There also is a list of stores where Mexican ingredients and cooking utensils can be purchased either directly or by mail."
—Seattle Post-Intelligencer
