Some Reading to Please your Palate

Posted on: December 4, 2008

I recently read this book and as a person who looks at eating as a way of life, I highly recommend it to anyone who feels the same way.


Here is a review of it from a New York Times article in 2006.

Here is another book that is necessary for the food gourmand’s library. Full of juicy stories and traditional recipes.


If you’re feeling adventurous during the holidays…

Source: Like Water for Chocolate: A Novel in Monthly Installments with Recipes, Romances, and Home Remedies by Laura Esquivel

1 can sardines
1/2 chorizo sausage
1 onion
1 can chiles serranos
10 hard rolls

Chop onions fine. Fry the sausage over low heat so that it cooks thoroughly without getting too brown. When done, remove from heat and add the sardines, which have been deboned ahead of time. Any black spots on the skins must be scraped off with a knife. Combine the onions, chopped chiles and the ground oregano with the sardines. Let the mixture stand before filling the hard rolls.

(No over n temperatures given because the recipes are from turn-of-the century Mexico.)
