The Book of Latin American Cooking (trade paperback)


by Elizabeth Lambert Ortiz, Vintage, first paperback edition, 1980. Trade paperback, 357 pages. A classic. Winner of a 1979 Tastemaker Award, this cookbook collects 500 of the best recipes from the varied cuisines of South America.

And this from a review by Richard Olney: "(It) is the most complete, the most varied, the most exciting work I know on the cuisines that have grown out of the intricate intermingling of Indian (Mayan, Aztec or Inca) traditions and those of the Mediterranean and Africa. The food is real and the flavours are those that people from hot countries cannot live without. The encyclopedic INGREDIENTS glossary is, in itself, a remarkable work in depth, including, among other things, a much needed and highly enlightened discussion of well over a dozen varieties of capsicum peppers."

Out of print. Condition: Other than slight curling of front cover and yellowing of pages, VG+.
