  • Nicely done little book

    By LMLee49
    Summaries of everything involved in the Mexican kitchen from history, holidays to descriptions of foods and ingredients. It is not a cookbook, describes in detail more than you’d find in a cookbook when it comes to those ingredients, coffees, cheeses, chilies, etc. A few photographs. Great iBook design and compilation. Very enjoyable.
