I love the quote by Eva Longoria about this book as it is so true!
“All my life I have wanted to travel through Mexico to learn authentic recipes from each region and now I don’t have to – Margarita has done it for me!”
I live in Southern California surrounded by countless Mexican Restaurants of all levels of quality. Sadly most are sub par greasy cheese and dry rice joints. The recipes I have prepared in this book make the countless combo-number-whatever’s pale in comparison. What consistently jumps at me in this book is the author’s passion for Mexican cuisine. She hits at the heart of the real Mexican food culture and makes a clear distinction between Americanized Mexican and the traditional, authentic dishes of various regions in Mexico. This is the best book on Mexican cuisine I have ever come across. The recipes are as authentic as eating them in Mexico!
