Overview

From the award-winning author of The Rich Tradition of European Peasant Cooking, made into a 13-part series for the BBC, comes Elisabeth Luard's collection of authentic Latin American recipes that span Mexico in the north to the southern tip of Argentina. Based on 84 key ingredients, the book includes old favorites and little-known regional specialties. Each recipe showcases a specific ingredient and demonstrates its versatility. Cocoa, for example, flavors sweet Brazilian Brownies and savory Mexican Chicken Mole. Lime adds zest to Guacamole and is the key ingredient of Shrimp Ceviche. 300 vibrant photographs of both the dishes and the locations where they originated create a sense of place and tantalize the palate in this definitive guide to some of the world's most enduring culinary traditions.
