I'm a terribly sorry that until a few weeks ago I had never heard of Ms Jinich's blog.
I follow quite a few foodblogs and I often buy their authors' cookbooks. With the exception of my family's recipes, some of my best-known dishes come from them.
While enjoying this book, I realized that, unfortunately, I tend to be much more Eurocentric that I thought. And it's weird because we have pretty strong ties with Americas. Most of the food I/we eat comes from the Americas and my family shares much of Ms Jinich's culinary habits. (We were all under the Spanish flag until late 1800...)
The recipes are easy to read, with well defined passages and useful tips. My only worry is that I doubt many of those ingredients will be available outside the bigger cities with a strong Mexican population.
The pictures are really evocative, but not always useful (as in a step-by-step approach). It's not a problem for me, but it may be for any cook who is still learning his/her rope.
At 1/3 of the book I had already bookmarked so many pages I'm not sure I will have the time to actually cook all that stuff. Ms Jinich has even succeeded in convincing me to try her twist of my loved leek and potato soup! And we should all thank her for her chicken recipes :D (It's the everyday cooking that is often more tiring than the one we do for the big festivity days.)
And God! Desserts! I love all Mexican food, but I really miss the sweet breads (rolls), the pan dulce, I had every morning while staying in Mexico City.
I want to thank Ms Jinich and her publisher for offering an Arc to an unknown reader.
