Editorial Reviews

Los Angeles Times
Jim Peyton's New Cooking from Old Mexico is well-researched and thoroughly delicious. It places the glorious and varied cuisines of Mexico in a context that should appeal to both the food historian and the home cook.
El Restaurante
Jim Peyton's New Cooking from Old Mexico introduces a new world of Mexican cuisine-one that combines traditional peasant and court cooking techniques to create dishes ideal for home and restaurant kitchens.
New Mexico Magazine
New Cooking from Old Mexico, Peyton's third Mexican cookbook, is easily the most impressive effort by the San Antonio-based author and culinary expert. But this isn't simply a cookbook. It's also a meticulously researched and beautifully written account of the evolution of Mexican cooking over the centuries, showing how Indian, Spanish and Moorish influences all have contributed to Mexico's distinctive cuisine
