Many Mexican dishes represent the country's unique mix of Indian and European cuisine. Packed with interesting and informative facts, this colorful volume gives readers a taste of Mexican history, culture and folklore, as well as food origins. Simple recipes tied to the text make this book a multi-sensory experience. Readers will have fun exploring Mexico's snacks and sweets, specialty foods, favorite dishes, and traditional holiday meals.
"These titles offer easy, delicioius recipes (some with as few as two ingredients) and insights into the cultures that produced them. Each volume is well researched, and culture and food go hand-in-hand. Each title ends with a metric conversion chart and extensive chapter notes. Clear, large full-color photographs spice up the texts. The language is inviting and not overly challenging, and each book could be used for reports on culture as well for cooking. These tasty books, especially the more obscure Ethiopian title, will be appreciated in most libraries."
