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.
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.
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.
