Behind the Cookbook: Zarela’s Veracruz

Behind the Cookbook: Zarela’s Veracruz

Zarela Martinez is one of the US’s leading authorities on Mexican cuisine and currently co-hosts the podcast Cooking in Mexican From A to Z on the Heritage Radio Network with her son Aarón Sánchez. Zarela’s Veracruz, was published in 2001, and was accompanied by a 13-part PBS TV series. In this edited extract from the original book proposal, the author describes how she came to write about the cuisine of this region, a bustling modern area of Mexico which contrasts in many ways with Oaxaca, the subject of her previous cookbook.
