9780781813044: Muy Bueno: Three Generations of Authentic Mexican Flavor

Siéntate a comer, esta muy bueno! {Sit down and eat, it s very good!} This was how Jesusita Mendias-Soza always welcomed guests to her table. The same words served as inspiration for her daughter Evangelina and granddaughters Yvette and Veronica, who wanted to honor her memory and preserve their family's recipes and stories for future generations. They started the Muy Bueno Cookbook blog in 2010 with this idea in mind, and quickly attracted thousands of fans and followers who fell in love with Muy Bueno's flavorful Mexican recipes, heartwarming family stories, and beautiful photography. Now they open their hearts and kitchens to an even wider audience in their first cookbook.

Spanning three generations, Muy Bueno offers over 100 recipes: traditional old-world northern Mexican recipes from Jesusita s kitchen; comforting south of the border home-style dishes from Evangelina; and innovative Latin fusion recipes from Yvette and Veronica. Also includes a chile glossary with photos, step-by-step instructions for roasting chiles, making tamales, and red chile sauce.

About the Author:

Yvette Marquez-Sharpnack, Veronica Gonzalez-Smith, and their mother Evangelina Soza were all born and raised in El Paso, Texas. They learned to cook from their grandmother and mother, Jesusita Mendias-Soza, whose hospitality and irresistible Mexican recipes were legendary among family and friends. They started the Muy Bueno Cookbook blog to celebrate and preserve their family's special culinary heritage. The blog and recipes have been featured in Latina magazine, and the websites of Paula Deen, The Pioneer Woman, SAVEUR, and Gourmet. Though now Yvette resides in Denver, Colorado, Veronica has moved to Germany, and Evangelina remains in her hometown El Paso, Texas, the three of them meet as often as possible to share the delicious food and steadfast family bond that inspired Muy Bueno. Visit them at muybuenocookbook.com.

Review:

"I have always been fascinated with how the foods of northern Mexico joined with the foods of the southern United States to invent a whole new world of culinary possibilities. Cooks from both sides of the border have been creating a delicious, exciting cuisine for the past couple hundred years. The women of Muy Bueno have some fantastic stories and recipes about this. Wow I truly enjoyed reading it and can't wait to start cooking!" --Roberto Santibañez, chef-owner of Fonda restaurants in NYC and author of Truly Mexican and Tacos, Tortas, and Tamales

It's hard for me to remain neutral about the tales and recipes of Muy Bueno. You see, their stories are my stories, just like many of us whose grandparents came from Chihuahua to Texas and beyond. But you needn't have an abuelita who blessed generations by handing down her recipes all you need is the love and spirit that Yvette, Veronica and Evangelina have filled within the pages of this book. Packed with authentic regional recipes, beautiful stories and gorgeous photographs, Muy Bueno is above all else a delicious family love story. --Matt Armendariz, MattBites.com and author of On a Stick!

"If you love Mexican comfort food and fantastic photography, you need Muy Bueno on your kitchen bookshelf!" --Jorge Bravo, founder of HispanicKitchen.com

--Jorge Bravo, founder of HispanicKitchen.com

"Charming family stories combined with richly colorful photos to make this a delightful invitation to cooking" --Michelle Kayal, Associated Press

"Every page invites the reader to step into the richness of Mexican culture, defined by exquisite food and lots of love. To see family recipes both traditional and contemporary recreated with so much care is a joy. I personally look forward to making Muy Bueno's recipes for my own family. --Nina Terrero, Entertainment Weekly
