A Little Mexican Cookbook

Carolyn Dehnel


Mexican cuisine is a rich melange of several different cultures. While it rest on Aztec and Mayan foundations, the influence of Spanish cooking since the Conquest has refined and changed it. This gives Mexican dishes an unexpected subtlety of flavour especially to those who think Chilli con Carne typically Mexican which it isn't. The subtlety comes not only from a combination of different cultures but also from the combination and balance of different chiles, nuts, seeds and spices. This book seeks to introduce only a few of the jewels of the Mexican kitchen; you will find some surprises from the rich Mole Poblana con Pavo to the simple but flavourful Pozole.
