Synopsis: Mexico's cuisine is rich and varied, ranging from the hearty beef dishes of Chihuahua to the grilled fish and seafood specialities found along the coast to the sophisticated subtle combinations from Mexico City. With more than 225 regional recipes and 225 colour photographs shot throughout Mexico, this book takes the reader on a gastronomic tour of the country. In easy-to-follow recipes, the reader can discover basic and classic as well as innovative dishes from the eight major culinary regions.

From Publishers Weekly: This gracefully assembled collection of Mexican regional specialties reflects a diverse cultural heritage in the sumptuous breadth of its cuisine. Food writer Quintana offers hearty fare from El Norte (Bahia sea bass stuffed with shrimp and lobster tails; "drunken" pinto beans in a sauce of beer, chiles and cilantro) and festive soups from the coast. Meals steeped in traditionblack mole from Oaxaca; baked red snapper assertively seasoned with Spanish olives, capers and mild chiles from Veracruz; and Pueblan chiles en nogada, or batter-fried chiles stuffed with meats, spices and fruits with a creamy sauce of walnuts and pomegranate seeds (the dish, in the colors of the Mexican flag, commemorates Independence Day) provide an intriguing contrast to the more contemporary, European-influenced dishes of Mexico City: squash-blossom crepes with melted Gruyere, sliced fish fillets in pastry shells and a sombrero de chocolate garnished with fig sherbet. Detailed instructions are carefully organized, and Quintana includes substitutions for hard-to-find ingredients, a list of specialty stores and a useful glossary of chiles. Regional histories and bold photographs that balance the autumn colors of fresh produce and the blue hues of Mexican pottery against dramatic landscapesare an inspiring touch. Author tour.
