Cookbook Review: Celebrating the Foods of New Mexico

Foods of New Mexico (2 of 5)

Any cookbook you get that the origins are from a cooking school you are almost guaranteed a go to reference whenever you need it. Not because they are going to give you the basics tools to learn but because they know how to teach someone to cook. And if they can do it live in a classroom they can easily translate it into cookbook.

Foods of New Mexico (5 of 5)

Celebrating the Foods of New Mexico by the Santa Fe School of Cooking (Gibbs-Smith) is such a book.  It holds a regular flour covered, greasy, sticky place in my kitchen because it gives simple techniques to make fresh and delicious Mexican food from homemade tortillas to salsas to Goat Cheese Enchiladas.

It takes the basics and adds a little punch like with this grilled pineapple salsa.

Most importantly it makes the home cook feel like they can easily accomplish a genre of food that may have been daunting in the past.  It is not a large book. Instead it saves each page for the most flavourful dishes they believe you would enjoy the most.
