In Fresh Mexico, Marcela Valladolid shows how refreshing and easy to prepare the foods from her native country really are, delivering vibrant flavor without forcing home cooks to source hard-to-find ingredients or spend hours chained to the stove. Crunchy beef tacos, overstuffed burritos, and processed cheese-filled quesadillas may be America's idea of Mexican food, but Marcela is ready to change that.
Dedicated to traditional foods, Marcela also understands the difficulties of feeding a family on a weeknight. Her recipes are quick to pull together, using easy-to-find ingredients and simple cooking techniques. You’ll find dishes such as Cream of Avocado Soup with Lobster and Mango, Oaxaca-Style Short Ribs, and Fresh Guava Layer Cake revelatory in their depth of flavor.
With more than 100 delicious recipes and beautiful color photography throughout, Fresh Mexico introduces a new generation of Americans to the exciting, easy cuisine of modern Mexico.
