Rick Bayless (and his wife Deann Groen Bayless) have spent a lifetime exploring the food and culture of Mexico. Rick Bayless has produced many Mexican cookbooks for all kinds of cooks. This is the one for those of us that don't need pretty pictures and who read cookbooks for fun.

This is more than a cookbook, it's a history of authentic Mexican cuisine that will arm you with the skills necessary to make more than tacos and enchiladas. Though I must admit the recipe for Chicken-Filled Enchiladas with Tangy Tomatillo Sauce is my absolute favourite.

Packed with tips, techiques and variations and written in plain English with plenty leeway for modern and local ingredients, this is a book beginners and experts can both enjoy.
