Mexico: The Cookbook

"All my life I have wanted to travel through Mexico to learn authentic recipes from each region and now I don’t have to – Margarita has done it for me!" Eva Longoria

Margarita Carrillo Arronte spent much of her childhood in the kitchen, watching her mother and grandmother cook. Originally from the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez, the world-renowned chef, TV host, and author travels around the globe extolling her country’s rich and varied cooking. She is also a member of the Conservatory of Mexican Gastronomic Culture, the organization responsible for the successful campaign to put traditional Mexican cuisine on UNESCO’s list of Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2010. - Smithsonian Magazine

Sobremesa is something so Mexican. After you have finished your meal, you stay with coffee—maybe the older men have a cognac, or maybe a cigar—and then talk, talk a lot, and be there for sometimes hours, depending on the day. - Margarita

"Mexico: The Cookbook does for Mexican food what Julia Child did for French cuisine" 

"Mexico: The Cookbook promises to introduce even the biggest fans of tort as and tamales to something new about Mexican cuisine and aims to prove that it can be as refined as it is accessible."
