Description

Terrenal, mágico y absolutamente encantador, este relato de la vida familiar en el México finisecular se convirtió, con la mezcla acertada de romance doloroso e ingenio agridulce, en un fenómeno de best-seller. La clásica historia de amor se sitúa en el rancho De la Garza, mientras la dueña tiránica Mamá Elena corta cebolla en la mesa de cocina durante sus últimos días de embarazo. Aún dentro del útero de su madre, la futura hija llora tan violentamente que causa un parto prematuro y la pequeña Tita nace entre las especies para preparar sopa de fideos. Este temprano encuentro con la comida pronto se convierte en una forma de vida. Tita se convierte en una chef maestra y, a lo largo de la historia, comparte puntos especiales de sus recetas favoritas con los lectores. La edición en español del best-seller Como agua para chocolate es, con toda razón, un notable éxito. Ahora, en esta edición en pasta blanda, miles de nuevos lectores podrán participar en el suntuoso, romántico y divertido relato de Tita, la extraordinaria cocinera que siempre pone algo extra especial en su salsa.
