Rick Bayless Mexico: One Plate at a Time  by Rick Bayless, Jeanmarie Brownson, Deann Groen Bayless (Contributor), James Isberner (Photographer)
From the first recipe we tried, it was apparent that this was not just another cutesy Tex-Mex cookbook. My congratulations on a job well done. This book is so authentic, that we even recognized some people we met during our stay. If you realllllllly want to taste Mexico without actually going there, prepare yourself for a treat, this is the definitive work on the subject of "real" Mexican cuisine. 

Mexico the Beautiful Cookbook: Authentic Recipes from the Regions of Mexico (Beautiful Cookbook) by Susanna Palazuelos, Marilyn Tausend, Susanna Palazielos (Contributor)

Of my dozens of cookbooks, I've used this one the most. My wife is from Michoacan which led me to get serious about Mexican cuisine. I believe the two essential Mexican cookbooks are this one and Rick Bayless' first cookbook: Authentic Mexican. Mexico The Beautiful Cookbook is a visual masterpiece filled with many great recipes. Every recipe has an accompanying photograph. Bayless' book has superior narrative (but short on pictures), with great stories attached to the recipes -- and Bayless attends to detail in recipe instructions like no other.

We are out collecting photos and writing notes. Do you have a favorite restaurant that you want to suggest we would love to include it here.

[Mexican Revolution Music]
Music Of The Mexican Revolution [BOX SET] 4 CDs - "..... This wonderful collection includes recordings from as early as 1904 to as late as the '70's, but mostly from the '20's. A beautifully produced 178 page booklet includes historic photos, a capsule history of the Mexican revolution -- the earliest of the great social revolutions that characterized the last century -- as well as a history of the music and all the lyrics, in English & Spanish. If you are a serious fan of Mexican music, don't pass this one up. If you just kinda like Los Lobos or Linda Ronstadt's Mexican songs, get this set and discover where it all came from."

[Mexican-American BorderMusic, Vol. 1: Pioneer Recording Artists (1928-1958)]
Mexican-American Border Music, Vol. 1: Pioneer Recording Artists (1928-1958) - REVIEW via "..... The first album in Arhoolie's superb Tex-Mex series, this traces the roots of the modern norteño-Tejano-conjunto sound. We hear the early accordion players and duet singers, then see them come together in the 1930s and '40s, forming the heart of the style as it has existed ever since. All the key names are here, from the blind fiddler El Ciego Melquiades to the magnificent Texan diva Lydia Mendoza, accordion pioneers Santiago Jiménez and Narciso Martinez, and the trend-setting Alegres de Teran. A 36-page booklet puts the music in context and makes this an essential purchase for anyone interested in border music. --Elijah Wald " 

[Canciones DeMi Padre (Songs Of My Father)]
Canciones De Mi Padre (Songs Of My Father) - Linda Ronsdadt "..... Topflight pop singer pays tribute to her heritage on this amazing roots ranchera album that also features excellent backing by the world-famous Mariachi Vargas, all under the experienced hand of master arranger-composer-producer Ruben Fuentes. Everything clicks wonderfully here, but numbers that set a new standard include "Tu Solo Tu," an incredibly harmonic love ode; "Por un Amor," on the price of real love; and "Los Laureles," a song of declaration on which Ronstadt soars unbelievably high. These are old Mexican classics, played by arguably the world's best mariachi group and sung by one of North America's greatest vocal talents. Extras include performances by another world figure, requinto player Gilbert Puente, who made trio history when he led Mexico's Los Tres Reyes in the '50s and '60s. In the mariachi-ranchera genre, this CD easily ranks among the very best. --Ramiro Burr". | About Us | Site Map | Email Group | |
