Mexico: One Plate at a Time - Rick Bayless

Hardback.   Near new condition.   2000

Rick Bayless has been acclaimed widely as America's foremost proponent of Mexico's thrillingly diverse cuisine.  In this companion book to his 26-part Television series, he takes us, with boyish enthusiasm, through Mexican markets, street stalls and home kitchens to bring us the great dishes of Mexico, one "plate" at a time.  And each "plate" Rick presents here is a Mexican classic.  Take guacamole, for instance.  After teaching us the essentials for a perfect, classic guacamole, Rick shows how to spin contemporary interpretations, like his Roasted Poblano Guacamole with garlic and parsley.  Rick's cuisine is always lively, but rooted in strong traditions.

Always the teacher, Rick begins each "plate" with some never-before-found features: traditional benchmarks (Rick's idea of the best guacamole), when to think of the recipes (weeknight dinners or casual party food), and advice for home cooks (Rick's insight into the ingredients that make the dish). He rounds out each "plate" with suggestions for working ahead.

Rick draws from his years of living in Mexico, pulling us into the Mexican kitchen, to teach us how to create authentic Mexican dishes.
