Americans have at last discovered Mexico's passion for
exciting food. We've fallen in love with the great Mexican
combination of rich, earthy flavors and casual, festive
dining. But we don't begin to imagine how sumptuous and
varied the cooking of Mexico really is.
After ten years of loving exploration, Rick Bayless,
together with his wife, Deann, gave us Authentic Mexican,
this now classic, easy-to-use compendium of our southern
This all-embracing cookbook offers the full range of dishes,
from poultry, meat, fish, rice, beans, and vegetables to
eggs, snacks made of corn masa, tacos, turnovers, enchiladas
and their relatives, tamales, and moles, ending with
desserts, sweets, and beverages. There are irresistible
finger foods such as Yucatecan marinated shrimp tacos and
crispy cheese-filled masa turnovers; spicy corn chowder and
chorizo sausage with melted cheese will start off a special
dinner; you will find mole poblano, charcoal-grilled pork in
red-chile adobo, and marinated fish steamed in banana leaves
for those times when you want to celebrate; and exotic ice
creams, caramel custards, and pies to top off any meal.
There's even a section devoted to refreshing coolers, rich
chocolate drinks, and a variety of tequila-laced cocktails.
The master recipes feature all the pointers you'll need for
re-creating genuine Mexican textures and flavors in a North
American kitchen. Menu suggestions and timing and
advance-preparation tips make these dishes perfectly
convenient for today's working families. And traditional and
contemporary variations accompany each recipe, allowing the
cook to substitute and be creative.
Rick and Deann Bayless traveled more than thirty-five
thousand miles investigating the six distinct regions of
Mexico and learning to prepare what they found. From town to
town, recipe by recipe, they personally introduce you to
Mexico's cooks, their kitchens, their markets, and their feasts.
If, like the rest of us, you have a growing love for Mexican
food, the reliable recipes in this book and the caring,
personal presentation by Rick and Deann Bayless will provide
meal after meal of pure pleasure for your family and friends.
