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.
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.
