Mexican Food magazines are Awesome

If you have a Mexican Market in your area and you have a reasonable command of Spanish - I cannot implore to you more to look for the Magazine rack.

There is a series put out by Editorial Mango called Irresitible Platillos and they are stunning.

I picked up three yesterday at 2.50 each.
--Sardina y Nopal
-- Salsas y Molcajetes

Fascinating tradtional recipes and intriguing pairings.

  1. Anyone interested in uniquely Mexican confections should check out Editorial Mango's "Irresistibles Gelatinas" for making Gelatin based masterpieces.

    Also, there are a couple of seasonal magazines that cite Vigilia or Cuaresma that specialize in Lenten dishes... which are good window Mexico's lighter fare.

      1. Here are two amazing revistas I picked up at a supermercado chain in riverside county.

        1. My co-worker who is Mexican/Argentinian, brought back not only about half a dozen cooking magazines- she brought 2 full cookbooks when she visited family in Argentina last year. GORGEOUS color photos, and really interesting and delicious-sounding stuff. The baking cookbook was especially nice-looking.

              do any of the magazines have a website?
