Growing up in Los Angeles, I was raised on the flavours of Mexico. Other than my family, the sunshine, and the hummingbirds, Mexican food is what I miss most about my hometown. When I was young, my mother had this book. When I moved to London, I bought a copy. Not only are Frida Kahlo's recipes outstanding and the personal anecdotes about her fascinating, but making the food in this book heals my homesickness. The corn pudding with chiles in cream, the black bean soup, and the seasoned pork roast are family favorites.
