The 2013 James Beard Foundation Cookbook of the Year How to cook everything Latin American.Gran Cocina Latina unifies the vast culinary landscape of the Latin world, from Mexico to Argentina and all the Spanish-speaking countries of the Caribbean. In one volume it gives home cooks, armchair travelers, and curious chefs the first comprehensive collection of recipes from this region. An inquisitive historian and a successful restaurateur, Maricel E. Presilla has spent more than thirty years visiting each country personally. She’s gathered more than 500 recipes for the full range of dishes, from the foundational adobos and sofritos to empanadas and tamales to ceviches and moles to sancocho and desserts such as flan and tres leches cake. Detailed equipment notes, drink and serving suggestions, and color photographs of finished dishes are also included. This is a one-of-a-kind cookbook to be savored and read as much for the writing and information as for its introduction to heretofore unrevealed recipes.
Maricel E. Presilla is the co-owner of Zafra and Cucharamama, two Latin restaurants in Hoboken, New Jersey. She holds a doctorate in medieval Spanish history from New York University and lives in Weehawken, New Jersey.

I bought this book as a Christmas present for my niece, and after she opened her package, you would've thought that she'd just won the Lottery. She was SOOOOOOOOO happy.
From what I could see, this book has great recipes and the photos are incredible. I may have to borrow it from her.
Also, B & N shipped this out to me in no time flat. I was expecting it on Friday, but got it on Thursday, so I was very pleased.
Thanks B & N.
