Mi Cocina, Rick Martinez
Described as one of the most anticipated cookbooks of 2022 by Time Magazine and Food 52, Mi Cucina is a love letter to the beauty and bounty of Mexico. Author Rick Martínez shares deeply personal recipes that he re-creates, inspired by his travels throughout the country. Highlighting the diversity, richness, and complexity of Mexican cuisine, Martinez includes recipes like herb and cheese meatballs bathed in a smoky, spicy chipotle sauce from Oaxaca; northern México’s grilled Carne Asada that he stuffs into a grilled quesadilla for full-on cheesy-meaty food euphoria; and tender sweet corn tamales packed with succulent shrimp, chiles, and roasted tomatoes from Sinaloa on the west coast. The author's poignant essays throughout lend context—both personal and cultural—to quilt together a story that is rich and beautiful, touching and insightful.
