Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments Like Water for Chocolate: A Novel in Monthly Installments, with Recipes, Romances and Home Remedies, Laura Esquivel, translated from Spanish by Carol Christensen and Thomas Christensen, 1992, Mexico, NOVEL

"...On one level, this is the story of Tita, youngest daughter of the formidable matriarch Mama Elena, who forbids Tita to marry her true love Pedro because tradition says that the youngest daughter must care for her mother until her death...Interwoven throughout the narrative are the recipes, which, like an ancient Greek chorus, provide an ongoing metaphorical commentary on the characters and their culture..."

(E.B., p. 358)
