Publishers Text

This is no ordinary cookbook - it is a lavishly illustrated, whimsical journey to the heart of 'real' Mexican food. You won't find the obligatory Tex-Mex nachos or hard tacos here - this book celebrates clean, spicy, authentic Mexican flavours. Daniella includes all the recipes she learned from her Mexican grandmother - her abuela - while they spent their time together in the kitchen. Savoury recipes include Cuete en Salsa de Nuez (beef in nut sauce); Chiles en Nogada (stuffed chillies); Langostinos a la Veracruzana (Veracruz-style prawns); and, Pan de Muerto (Day of the Dead bread). Also included are sections on Mexican basics - such as cooking with Mexican herbs and spices, and chilli varieties - as well as classic salsas, rice, tortillas and bean dishes.
