Writer and broadcaster

The book of Maricel's life, full of recipes from her travels all over Latin America as well as insights due to her training as a historian. If Claudia Roden had written about Latin America instead of the Jews, she would have written this.

Paula Forbes

Food writer and cookbook author

Need to know your Cuban sofrito from your Puerto Rican sofrito? Looking for some traditional Peruvian sauces? Or the key to a great Argentinian steak? Maricel Presilla's scholarly masterwork of the foods of Latin America has you covered.

Nicola Miller

Editor and writer

This is an expansive primer by a scholar and chef who has travelled all over the Americas and the Caribbean. A good book to buy if you are new to these cuisines but want something more than a basic cookbook devoid of context.
