Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

With books like Everyday Mexican and Fiesta at Rick's, James Beard International Cookbook Award winner Rick Bayless has convinced even inveterately skeptical home cooks that he's more than a one dish wonder. The Bravo Top Chef champion and Mexico—One Plate at a Time host has outdone himself in this inviting collection of south of the border comfort food and drinks. Frontera offers a guacamole specialty for every month of the year and a variety of nut and vegetable snacks. And if you need a break, you can always hand-shake one of his 35 margaritas recipes into tasty reality. A boon for international relations.

Publishers Weekly
In the first chapter of his last cookbook (Fiesta at Rick's, Norton, 2010), there was no hiding Bayless's love of tequila. So it is not surprising to find that a full 75% of his latest work is a tribute to tequila-based cocktails, be it the classic margarita, fruit and herb-based variations thereof, modern tequila cocktails, or dessert drinks. There are 35 beverage options in all, with recipes provided for both straining by-the-glass and pouring by-the-pitcher. Why a November release for a drink synonymous with summer? Perhaps because Bayless is out to prove that the margarita is a drink for all seasons, going so far as to offer variations pegged to the calendar. An apple-habanero margarita is deemed appropriate for the fall while a version for winter involves pineapple puree and crushed chile, garnished with the Mexican root vegetable jicama. Of course, proper space is given to the traditional margarita, with meditations on the appropriate lime and the ideal cube of ice. The calendar again comes into play with a chapter entitled "A Year of Guacamoles." Bayless serves up a recipe for each month, from an almond-grapefruit guac to a brown butter guacamole with porcini and crab. A brief selection of fruit, vegetable, and nut snacks brings the reader to an assumed conclusion, yet Bayless cannot help throwing in another eight pages at the end dedicated to the joys of his favorite liquor.
