Enjoy empanadas filled with creamed corn, a crispy-edged, juicy skirt steak doused in tangy chimichurri, or the divine layers of moist angel food cake, strawberries, and whipped cream of the Strawberry Delicia, all of which Daisy Martinez brings to life in this vibrant collection of recipes.
Growing up in her mother's and grandmother's kitchens, Daisy became an expert in traditional Latin-American cuisine. Here she "Daisifies" those classics and includes a hearty sampling of dishes from her travels across Spain, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Peru, and Argentina.
To Daisy, food is about bringing family together, and so she peppers her collection with anecdotes and family vacation photos. Each recipe is as much about the memory the flavors recall as the love that goes into preparing the dish; for her, the succulent grilled meats of a parrillada bring back memories of a Christmas spent floating in a pool in Argentina, while the flaky, gooey vegetable potpie recalls an extravagant dinner party in the Dominican Republic. As a busy mother of four, Daisy lives the time crunch every day and has crafted her recipes to be quick, adaptable, and easy to understand. She deftly demystifies the ingredients of the Latin-American kitchen, explaining everything from the spectrum of color in plantains to the degrees of heat in chiles.
With this range of mouthwatering recipes, you can plan your day with Daisy: rise and shine with the rich aromas of chile-spiked hot chocolate; power up with a midday empanada with your pick of five savory fillings; and start a tradition with a night of tantalizing tapas. Why eat dull when you can eat delicioso?
It's a great and colorful book. Just looking at the pictures made me hungry and wanting to try to make it. My husband is the puerto rican in the family and he approves! :) Great book, could be a little bit cheaper though. And the drinks should be a separate section and there could be more beverages in it.
Daisy I love your recipes! I enjoy creating the many recipes in this book. The directions and the ingredients are easy to find in my local grocery store. I have recommended this book to my family members and collegues.
