From Ingrid Hoffmann, international food and television personality, restaurateur, and host of the Cooking Channel’s Simply Delicioso and Univision’s Delicioso, comes a fully illustrated, easy-to-follow cookbook that offers a healthy spin on modern Latin cuisine.

Latin D’lite features more than 150 classic Latin recipes, all with Ingrid’s signature touches:

  • Adding bright, bold flavor to every dish with herbs, spices, and chiles.
  • Introducing readers to ingredients such as pumpkin seeds, green and ripe plantains, ají amarillo (Peruvian yellow chile pepper), and malanga (a popular South American root vegetable), along with how and when to use them.
  • Offering healthful ingredient substitutions and cooking tips such as using lime juice as a coleslaw dressing instead of mayonnaise. Or making codfish balls from fresh, rather than dried, cod, then baking them instead of frying them. Using frozen mango and a touch of rosewater and white wine for a light sorbet.
  • Time-saving prep secrets and presentation ideas.

At the end of each chapter, there is one indulgent recipe to allow the occasional splurge while maintaining these healthy changes. Delicious dishes such as Latin-style Fried Chicken or Ingrid’s take on a decadent lobster sandwich should be enjoyed every once in a while!

A serious food lover who also understands the importance of balancing a healthful lifestyle, Ingrid offers a fresh, energetic take on Latin foods—from breakfast to appetizers and snacks, to soups and salads, to entrées, cocktails, and desserts.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In her second cookbook, Hoffmann (Simply Delicioso) introduces readers to healthier Latin cuisine. She substitutes whole-grain toasts for deep-fried tortillas in Black Beans and Queso Fresco Five-Grain Tostadas, and boneless pork loin chops for pork shoulder in Mexican Pork Pozole. Perhaps realizing that recipes like Fluffy Egg White Pancakes with Papaya-Banana Compote (essentially a sweet egg white omelet) won't satisfy all cravings, Hoffmann includes a true "indulgence" at the end of each chapter. VERDICT Health-conscious readers who enjoy bold flavors will love these easy recipes. Highly recommended.

Meet the Author

Ingrid Hoffmann, originally from Colombia, developed a love for cooking as a child during the time she spent in the kitchen with her mother, a Cordon Bleu–trained chef. As a teenager, she worked in her mom’s catering and restaurant business. Upon moving to Miami, they opened a restaurant together. As host of Delicioso on Univision and Simply Delicioso on the Cooking Channel, Ingrid has become arguably the foremost Latin authority on cooking and lifestyle, and her Delicioso brand has become one of the most recognizable, trusted, and entertaining food brands for Hispanic America. In 2011, Ingrid was named Flavors of Passion Master Chef of the Year—an award that was created and designed to honor the nation’s best Latino chefs.
