The Art of Mexican Cooking
Diana Kennedy has updated her definitive work: The Art of Mexican Cooking. This book is a treasure, and Diana is a recipient of the prestigious Order of the Aztec Eagle bestowed by the Mexican government. Kennedy, originally from the United Kingdom, has spent 45 years living and cooking in Mexico - where she is now considered something of a national treasure. You can order her latest edition for under twenty bucks at Amazon. Money well spent for the true foodie.
That said, my late father-in-law's salsa recipe is still the best in the known universe. I'm not just saying that either. Noted techie columnist John Dvorak agrees with me and covered the recipe on his last-page column in BoardWatch Magazine years ago. Read that story and get the recipe. You know you want to.
