The Spirit and Style of the Mexican KitchenBook - 2006
Mexicocina takes you behind the doors of private homes, museums, resorts, and cooking schools for an insider's tour of the kitchens of Mexico. Awash in bright colors and bold designs, each kitchen features traditional Mexican artistry flavored with the owners' distinctive style. Here, stainless steel meets colorful talavera tile, and the humble comal grill is as essential as a sleek appliance. Priceless collections of ceramics sit side-by-side with everyday dishware. And San Pasqual Bailn, the patron saint of cooks and kitchens, blesses every last handmade copper kettle, clay pot, and wooden spoon.
Inspiration abounds in these kitchens. Whether you're decorating a kitchen, planning a trip, or just dreaming of the rich aroma of caf de olla , Mexicocina takes you into the heart of the Mexican home, la cocina . And Mexicocina tantalizes more than just the eyes, featuring mouth-watering recipes for innovative Mexican dishes, from guacamole with fresh fruit to chile-scented chocolate truffles.
