Home Recipes from the Twenty-One Countries of Latin America: A Cookbook
An encyclopedic cookbook celebrating Latin American home cooking—the first to cover the day-to-day home cooking of all twenty-one nations—by one of the most respected authorities on the subject
In this monumental work, culinary expert Sandra A. Gutierrez shares more than three hundred everyday dishes—plus countless variations—that home cooks everywhere will want to replicate. Divided by ingredient—Beans, Corn, Yuca, Quinoa, and almost two dozen more—and featuring an extensive pantry section that establishes the fundamentals of Latin American cooking, Latinísimo brings together real recipes from home cooks in Argentina, Brazil, Belize, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Uruguay, and Venezuela.
From Tortillas de Nixtamal (Fresh Masa Tortillas), Arroz con Pollo (Chicken and Rice), and Arepas Clásicas (Classic Arepas) to Solterito (Lima Bean, Corn, and Tomato Salad), Sopa Seca con Albahaca à la Chinchana (One-Pot Spaghetti with Achiote and Basil), and Pastel de Tres Leches (Tres Leches Cake), these are recipes that reflect the incredible breadth and richness of the culinary traditions of the region. Sweeping in its scope, and filled with history and stories, Latinísimo is an utterly essential resource for every kitchen.
