Review quote

"A living legend in food, Kennedy started exploring the markets of Mexico's towns and villages more than fifty years ago, meeting cooks and gathering plants and recipes with the precision of an ethnobotanist. It has been her lifelong project of achieving total intimacy with Mexico's native ingredients." - Munchies
