About this Item

First edition, dedicated to California's Mexican?Spanish heritage and its tradition of hospitality. Compiled by a minor actor and chef who grew up in the Mexican community of Los Angeles, these traditional recipes are decorated with illustrations by California artist Alice Hays Scheid, printed in red and black. (Born Ernesto Mariscal, Jr., "Don Ricardo" worked in Hollywood under the name William "Bill" Hayden.) The author's name is a bit of a conundrum. Library of Congress interprets it as above, but it could just as easily be that Ricardo is a first name and "Don" is the honorific. 8vo (22.3 cm, 8.75"). 120 pp.; illus. Publisher's textured terra cotta?colored cloth, front cover and spine with gilt-stamped title, in original dust jacket; jacket mildly sunned with upper edge slightly dust-soiled, spine extremities nicked, volume with minimal wear to spine extremities. Pages very clean and crisp. Bookseller Inventory # 36123
