We are pleased to share a promotion for our next EYBD Book, Historic Cookery: Authentic New Mexican Food by Fabiola Gilbert. The author was an American educator, nutritionist, activist and writer. She was also the first known published author of a cookbook describing New Mexican cuisine (1931), and changed the way the world enjoyed Mexican food by inventing the u-shaped fried taco shell. This book is a reprint of that classic title that had been revised through the years before the author's death in 1991 at the age of 97.


New Mexican cuisine has its own place in culinary traditions. Traditional New Mexican dishes are a unique fusion of various Native American, Mexican, Spanish, European, and even North American cowboy chuckwagon foods and cooking techniques. It is not Mexican or Tex-Mex food.

The more than 100 authentic New Mexican dishes in Historic Cookery take you back to the old ways of preparing food, slow-cooked with flavor and just the right finishing touch. There are recipes for chile sauces, and meat, poultry, fish, cheese, egg, salad, soup, bread, sandwich, dessert, pastry, beverage, and more.

There are no photographs in this title as it is a classic title first published in 1931 and revised throughout the years but it contains a wealth of knowledge.

Our    takes you inside this book with recipes such as the following.

If you order this title before our promotional period ends, register here (be sure you have a photo of your receipt or screenshot from your online order ready to upload). Once your purchase has been verified, this button will appear on the book on your Bookshelf next to the title and will take you to the digital access for this classic title.
