WINNER, 2010 NM BOOK AWARD, BEST COOKBOOK
New Mexico cuisine is unique, with assertive flavors, bright colors and a sassy taste. Today the rich fusion of many culinary arts has created foods that are a blend of Spanish, Tex-Mex, Mexican, Pueblo Indian, French, cowboy chuck wagon and Mediterranean. The surprising results of the melding of these traditional and imported specialties, in unusual combinations, are found nowhere else in the world. Each of the cultures that are a part of this state s colorful history has contributed to this warm, savory cuisine.
New Mexico Cuisine offers an excellent introduction to these foods as well as the cultural traditions that provided them. The user-friendly recipes range from traditional favorites to new ones designed for today s quick and convenient lifestyle. Recipes include appetizers, salads, soups, breads, tortillas, main dishes, vegetables, side dishes, chili, sauces, salsa, desserts, cookies and candy. A separate section covers high altitude cooking. New Mexico Cuisine clearly presents the uniqueness of New Mexico food and why the state is indeed the Land of Enchantment.
New Mexico Cuisine is a companion book to the best selling award winning Red or Green, also by Clyde Casey and available from Clear Light Publishers.
