In "Food From My Heart", Martínez describes the connection between Mexico and food, between food and culture. Mexican cooking is itself the result of the collision of cultures; it brings together Old and New World ingredients—rice, onions, corriander, from the Old; corn, chiles, beans, tomatoes, from the New—and the culinary influences of its constantly shifting ethnic mosaic—the Mayans, Aztecs, Spanish, French, Germans, Chinese.Martínez has drawn upon these influences, of friends and family, of traditional foods of many regions of Mexico, to create her own personal style of cooking, one that is imaginative and highly flavorful, easy to prepare, and evocative of the classic Mexican cooking upon which it is based. It is all brought together—the traditional and new—in the form of memoir, stories, and more than 175 recipes to create this singular cookbook.Now celebrating it's 20th anniversary.

Praise for The Food and Life of Oaxaca "There's a whole new and surprising world of flavor and texture contrasts described in this intriguing cookbook, along with lore and history of the exotic and artistic Oaxaca. No one is better equipped than Zarela to present clear and delectable recipes for the tantalizing dishes of this little-known regional cuisine." -- Mimi Sheraton, author of The Whole World Loves Chicken Soup "I've watched Zarela weave her culinary magic from the first dinner party I attended at her home, beginning with intensely flavored salsas presented in lava bowls. How apt that a chef who prepares such dazzling Mexican food should lead us through Oaxaca. The soul and lore of this magical place will add new life to your table through Zarela's recipes." --Shelia Lukins, author of USA Cookbook, Food Editor of Parade Magazine "Food in Mexico, especially in Oaxaca, smacks of so much more than trends and nutrition. Zarela Martinez knows this passionately and has bestowed on us a book that will enrich the lives of all that are really hungry, all that are seeking more than the latest flavor. Filled with honest glimpses of an extraordinary place, The Food and Life of Oaxaca offers the most intimate understanding anyone can gain of another culture--the understanding that comes through flavor. For many in Oaxaca, eating is the perfect act of celebration, consecrating every aspect of life. The warm flavors Zarela Martinez has captured here are the perfect expression of Oaxaca's generous spirit." --Rick Bayless, author of Authentic Mexican and Rick Bayless's Mexican Kitchen Visit us online at: www.mcp.com/mgr

Chinese food first became popular in America under the shadow of violence against Chinese aliens, a despised racial minority ineligible for United States citizenship. The founding of late-nineteenth-century "chop suey" restaurants that pitched an altered version of Cantonese cuisine to white patrons despite a virulently anti-Chinese climate is one of several pivotal events in Anne Mendelson's thoughtful history of American Chinese food. Chow Chop Suey uses cooking to trace different stages of the Chinese community's footing in the larger white society. Mendelson begins with the arrival of men from the poorest district of Canton Province during the Gold Rush. She describes the formation of American Chinatowns and examines the curious racial dynamic underlying the purposeful invention of hybridized Chinese American food, historically prepared by Cantonese-descended cooks for whites incapable of grasping Chinese culinary principles. Mendelson then follows the eventual abolition of anti-Chinese immigration laws and the many demographic changes that transformed the face of Chinese cooking in America during and after the Cold War. Mendelson concludes with the post-1965 arrival of Chinese immigrants from Taiwan, Southeast Asia, and many regions of mainland China. As she shows, they have immeasurably enriched Chinese cooking in America but tend to form comparatively self-sufficient enclaves in which they, unlike their predecessors, are not dependent on cooking for a white clientele.

Eat Mexico is a love letter to the intricate cuisine of Mexico City, written by a young journalist who lived and ate there for four years. It showcases food from the city's streets: the football-shaped, bean-stuffed corn tlacoyo, topped with cactus and salsa; the tortas bulging with turkey confit and a peppery herb called papalo; the beer-braised rabbit, slow-cooked until tender. The book ends on a personal note, with a chapter highlighting the creative, Mexican-inspired dishes - such as roasted poblano oatmeal - that Lesley cooks at home in New York with ingredients she discovered in Mexico. Ambitious cooks and armchair travellers alike will enjoy Lesley's Eat Mexico.
