Mexican food has been trendy for decades, and many cooks aren’t sure how to duplicate it at home. Mely Martinez shows how in her cookbook, Mexico in Your Kitchen: Favorite Mexican Recipes That Celebrate Family, Community, Culture, and Tradition. If you’re looking for the mundane, same-old, same-old Mexican dishes, you can just visit Del Taco or Taco Bell, but if you want unique and delicious Mexican dishes that will please everyone, you’ll want to check out this excellent cookbook.

The recipes are laid out in the traditional manner with the ingredients listed first, followed by step-by-step instructions that make it easy for anyone – beginners to advanced – to prepare these dishes with picture-perfect and delicious results. The book is filled with recipes for not-so-well-know Mexican dishes such as Chiloria, Encremadas, Tortitas De Papa, Enmoladas, and other specialties. There is a section on cooking with mole paste, and several mouthwatering desserts. There are also some recipes for classic favorites such as Tacos al pastor (a favorite), and Queso Fundido. There is something for everyone in this cookbook.

One of the best aspects of this cookbook is that it contains beautiful, professional photographs of most of the dishes. It will make cooks want to make every recipe in the book. There are recipes for seafood, meats, poultry, breads, desserts, appetizers, sauces, salsas, and condiments; most are easy.
All told, this is an excellent and unique Mexican cookbook. It is a cut above many that are available, and it is an excellent choice to add to the cookbook shelf.
