Review quote

A food rich in flavor to begin with, but taking on the best traits of other traditions of cuisine -- Spanish, French, Asian, Caribbean, and so many more -- it's one way to describe the food of the Maya. "Mayan Cuisine: Recipes From the Yucatan Region" is a look at the delectable food of the Mayan people, with step-by-step guides and full color photos to help one emulate the authentic Mayan flavor in their own kitchen. With dishes like Meat and Rice-Stuffed Leaves, Tamale Pie, Yucatan Breakfast Sausages, and more, "Mayan Cuisine: Recipes From the Yucatan Region" is a must for any ethnic cookbook shelf or for anyone looking for a different taste to sink their teeth into. --James A.
