Mexico One Plate At A Time

By Rick Bayless

Nobody is more qualified than Bayless, the host of a PBS television cooking series, to walk the novice through Mexican recipes, which can often be troublesome because of their esoteric ingredients and unusual cooking methods. In Mexico One Plate At A Time, Bayless delivers on his promise in stunning fashion. In fact, this is the only cookbook necessary to make many of the staples that define Mexican cuisine. He presents a wide variety of recipes in the straight-forward, conversational style that has made him a favorite amongst PBS viewers. He also makes sure he deals with any technical issues in appreciated detail. Often, the recipes can be time-consuming, but Bayless makes the investment of time worthwhile by helping the cook create stunning dishes that capture the essence of Mexico's varied cuisine. He offers answers to frequently asked questions at the end of each recipe, and, more often that not, that proves to be the biggest highlight of this tome. If you love authentic Mexican -- not the Americanized version churned out by countless restaurants throughout the world -- this is the cookbook to have.
