Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his signature style, Daniel Hoyer brings us the authentic recipes of the Maya with Mayan Cooking, along with his personal experiences that make the historical and cultural background of this people accessible and enjoyable. Having been influenced for centuries by the Spanish, other European countries, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and even the Caribbean, Mayan food is remarkably unique and distinct. Mayan Cooking offers recipes for Sweet Corn and Cilantro Cream Soups, Yucatan BBQ Shrimp, Smoked Pork Loin, Jicama-Orange Salad, and Chicken in Red Chile and Pumpkinseed Sauce, as well as an abundance of recipes for salsas, sauces, spice mixes, and marinades.

Recipes Include:

Bean-Filled Masa Fritters

Baked Chayote Squash Pudding

Mexican Lime Soup

Pit-Roasted Pork with Yucatan Spices

Yucatan BBQ Shrimp

Pumpkinseed Brittle

Author Bio: Daniel Hoyer is an experienced chef, restaurateur, and teacher. Daniel is the author of Culinary Mexico: Authentic Recipes and Traditions and Fiesta on the Grill. He resides in the Rio Grande Valley near Pilar, New Mexico, with his family.

Review:

"In his latest, chef Hoyer (Culinary Mexico) offers a vibrant, thorough guide to Mayan cooking. Once cooks master the basic recado, a thick seasoning paste that serves as a key flavor component, they're ready to tackle dishes like Salpicón de Venado (a roast venison salad), polenta studded with wild mushrooms, classic Mexican Lime Soup and meaty dishes like Pavo en Chilimole (Turkey in Black Seasoning Paste) and the classic pit-roasted pork, Cochinita Pibil. Those looking for shortcuts will likely be frustrated, as Hoyer is a traditionalist who makes tortillas and masa from scratch for his tamales, including the elaborate Tamales de la Bola Colados, a traditional wedding dish in which shredded chicken is enveloped in a smooth, custard-like masa and steamed. That said, many less-complicated dishes are just as rewarding, including pumpkinseed dip and brittle, luscious Chayote Squash Pudding, Cuban roast pork and crunchy Xol-Chon Kek, a jicama and orange salad. Hoyer is encouraging and enthusiastic, offering salient tips for key techniques like working with tamale wrappers and charring tomatoes, as well as sources for hard-to-locate ingredients. Those interested in expanding their cultural and culinary horizons will find this collection both educational and all-inclusive." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
