Muy Bueno is more than a cookbook. This is a family memoir that makes the recipes come to life. The brief stories that accompany each recipe convey the love that this family has for each other as they share the ways in which they have bonded over food, shared meals and tradition. Of course, we want food that tastes good, but it’s family and friends that make the food even better.
This Mexican cookbook includes the recipes of three generations of women. These are the recipes that have stood the test of time in their family and I’ve already picked out some that I know I’ll want to make time and time again.
Each of the women has their own specialties that they share in this beautiful book. There are over 100 recipes, a glossary, instructions for basic techniques and many photographs.
