From Tortillas de Nixtamal (Fresh Masa Tortillas), Arroz con Pollo (Chicken and Rice), and Arepas Clásicas (Classic Arepas) to Solterito (Lima Bean, Corn, and Tomato Salad), Sopa Seca con Albahaca à la Chinchana (One-Pot Spaghetti with Achiote and Basil), and Pastel de Tres Leches (Tres Leches Cake), these are recipes that reflect the incredible breadth and richness of the culinary traditions of the region. Sweeping in its scope, and filled with history and stories, Latinísimo is an utterly essential resource for every kitchen.
“Latinísimo is as practical and day-to-day useful as it is revelatory. Whether you’re new to the culinary heritage of Latin America or you grew up in the culture and know the traditions in your bones, there’s something to learn on every page and something deeply satisfying to savor in every recipe—each sparkles with Sandra’s genius as a scholar, storyteller, brilliant cook and generous teacher. Latinísimo is a book to treasure today and to pass on to a new generation of cooks tomorrow.”
