Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“For the adventuresome traveler, this book is a “smart,” richly annotated road map that will steer you to the right markets and teach you where to find authentic Mexican food. EAT SMART IN MEXICO offers what is most important about Mexican food and culture wrapped in a nutshell. If  you cannot get to Mexico, this book will provide vicarious travel and cooking inspiration of the first order. As in Eat Smart in Brazil, the Petersons have succeeded in reaching a middle ground between the practical and the scholarly to unravel some of the best kept secrets of one of the world’s most complex cuisines.”—Maricel Presilla, Ph.D., Culinary historian and author specializing in the cuisines of Latin America and Spain
Library Journal
With the fourth title in their "Eat Smart" series, the Petersons have assembled a guide to the food of Mexico for travelers. Their book is organized into eight sections. At its heart is an extensive menu guide and a food and flavors guide. Otherwise, the authors include an informative and extensive history of the cuisine; a section on regional foods; a less successful section of a few recipes; a very brief chapter on shopping in Mexican food markets; another on mail order suppliers, cooking schools, and organizations; and a handy guide to helpful phrases. The result is similar to Marita Adair's The Hungry Traveler: Mexico (LJ 8/97) but has more history. Highly recommended for all public libraries.--George M. Jenks, Bucknell Univ., Lewisburg, PA

Meet the Author

Joan and David Peterson are experienced, world-wide travelers. They have led tours to the Pacific Rim, the Caribbean, Europe, and Australia. They also have explored extensively on their own, concentrating on the cuisines of the countries they visit. Because general guidebooks—despite their hefty size—provide too little information about food for their taste, the Petersons tackled the subject themselves, providing in-depth information for others with a similar travel focus.
