My Sweet Mexico by Fany Gerson is both amusing and very useful. Although most people in the U. S. A. are familiar with a few Mexican savory dishes, it is rare to see any of the many desserts which are so popular in that country. Of particular interest are the various ways of using fruits and vegetables for sweets almost unknown here. An example is the recipe for candied limes stuffed with coconut, a treat available everywhere in Mexico, and simple to prepare, but never seen North of the border, except in the homes of those who know that candies can come in many flavors. There are historical anecdotes on each category and individual recipes within it. The recipes are clearly written, and there is a section to help with ingredients. This is a loving introduction to wonderful treats, most of which can be made by anyone with a sense of adventure.

Authentic recipes, clearly written: for wonderful desserts. Many of these sweets are perfect for holiday gift-giving. Most of the ingredients are readily available, and the few exotic ones can be ordered by mail. There is nothing as memorable as homemade treats, and these will be a new experience for many who try them.

This book is as beautiful to look at as it is comprehensive in its scope of Mexican sweets. It has all of the things you'd expect--arroz con leche, churros-- as well as regional specialties that capture the essence of Mexico: pan de muerto, conchas, marinas, cocadas, mazapanes, alegrias and more. Understanding the food is, to me, an integral part of understanding the country. (Fany Gerson also includes lovely stories and histories with her recipes.) I am so excited to prepare these recipes and be transported to my favorite country in the world.

I heard about this book on Splendid Table. I love real Mexican food. So I was delighted to hear about this book and look forward to trying her recipes.
