One thing I have always loved about cookbooks is their power to transport a person. They also pique my curiosity about people and place. The Art of Mexican Cooking has inspired me to search for great Mexican ingredients in my local markets and led to a bit of fun research on the author, Diana Kennedy. You can listen to an awesome interview with the author on NPR from 2010 here: Cooking With The Grand Dame Of Mexican Cuisine
First published nearly twenty-five years ago, The Art of Mexican Cooking by Diana Kennedy remains the quintessential cookbook on Mexican cuisine. If you are looking to incorporate and enjoy fresh, authentic Mexican flavors in your kitchen, start by adding The Art of Mexican Cooking to your kitchen library.
