CUISINES OF HIDDEN MEXICO
A Culinary Journey to Guerrero and Michoac?n
A combination cookbook, travelog, and cultural history, Cuisines of Hidden Mexico explores two Mexican regions through the richness and diversity of their food. In few countries of the world is food so central to the lives of the people as it is in Mexico. And this absorbing account of a journey to Guerrero and Michoac?n shows just how closely each region's tantalizing recipes (75 included) are woven together with its history, anthropology, and folk art. Armchair gourmet travelers will discover the surprising subtlety and variety of authentic Mexican fare as they wander through town and countryside, enjoying the sights, and savoring the delectable tastes of simple back-road stands and fine restaurants. A full complement of line drawings by Nicol?s de Jes?s, the acclaimed Mexican artist, further enhances the multisensory pleasure of this fine book.
