Cookbook: Cuisine a Latina



As anyone who has scanned my blog can probably quickly figure out -- I am partial to Latin food. I can't help it. My parents are Guatemalan, I was born in Queens, and raised in New York and Miami, microcosms of Latin America. So when I stumbled upon Chef Michelle Bernstein's amazing cookbook, Cuisine a Latina, I was thrilled.

My sisters + I actually gave it to my Mom last year as a birthday gift, but I recently "borrowed" it and have been salivating over every page. She takes traditional Latin recipes, and gives them a delicious, modern makeover (e.g. blue cheese and ham croquetas with fig marmalade). I highly recommend it if you would like to add a great new Latin cookbook to your collection. Here is one of her mouth-watering recipes, in case you'd like to preview... Crispy Arepitas with Mozzarella and Chorizo and more at Miami's Hottest Latin Party. | Cook: Cuisine a Latina
