Title: Mi Cocina: Recipes and Rapture from My Kitchen In Mexico
Author: Rick Martinez
Genre: Food & Drink
Publication Date: May 3rd, 2022
Publisher: Clarkson Potter

Join Rick Martínez on a once-in-a-lifetime culinary journey throughout México that begins in Mexico City and continues through 32 states, in 156 cities, and across 20,000 incredibly delicious miles. In Mi Cocina, Rick shares deeply personal recipes as he re-creates the dishes and specialties he tasted throughout his journey. Inspired by his travels, the recipes are based on his taste memories and experiences. True to his spirit and reflective of his deep connections with people and places, these dishes will revitalize your pantry and transform your cooking repertoire.

Highlighting the diversity, richness, and complexity of Mexican cuisine, he includes recipes like herb and cheese meatballs bathed in a smoky, spicy chipotle sauce from Oaxaca called Albóndigas en Chipotle; northern México's grilled Carne Asada that he stuffs into a grilled quesadilla for full-on cheesy-meaty food euphoria; and tender sweet corn tamales packed with succulent shrimp, chiles, and roasted tomatoes from Sinaloa on the west coast. Rick's poignant essays throughout lend context--both personal and cultural--to quilt together a story that is rich and beautiful, touching and insightful.



*A Thank you to Netgalley for allowing me to read this. This is my honest and unbiased review*

Hello Fellow Eaters,

I've been a fan of Rick Martinez for a couple of years, so when I found out that he had a cook book coming out I jumped at the chance to read it. Martinez is just so passionate about the food he cooks and you can just feel it in every photo, description, and recipe. As a good lover as well as a reader, it's so refreshing to see (read) someone be so in love with what they are doing that it jumps out of every page. Not only does every recipe make my mouth water, but this is the most beautiful cookbook that I've ever seen. Also he does his recipes in grams something I wished more people did.

Overall, a mouth wateringly beautiful cookbook.
