Synopsis:

Earthy, magical, and utterly charming, this tale of family life in turn-of-the-century Mexico became a best-selling phenomenon with its winning blend of poignant romance and bittersweet wit. The classic love story takes place on the De la Garza ranch, as the tyrannical owner, Mama Elena, chops onions at the kitchen table in her final days of pregnancy. While still in her mother's womb, her daughter to be weeps so violently she causes an early labor, and little Tita slips out amid the spices and fixings for noodle soup. This early encounter with food soon becomes a way of life, and Tita grows up to be a master chef. She shares special points of her favorite preparations with listeners throughout the story.


Review:

"A wondrous romantic tale. Esquivel has given us a banquet."

Los Angeles Times

Review:

"'Like Water for Chocolate' is deceptively simple and simply wonderful. A story of love, sex, war, and the sweep of Mexican history that belongs to women."

Boston Globe
