Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the pure, radiant flavors of classic Blackberry and Spicy Pineapple to unexpectedly enchanting combinations such as Sour Cream, Cherry and Tequila, or Strawberry-Horchata, Paletas is an engaging and delicious guide to Mexico’s traditional—and some not-so-traditional—frozen treats.

 

Collected and developed by celebrated pastry chef Fany Gerson, this sweet little cookbook showcases her favorite recipes for paletas, those flavor-packed ice pops made from an enormous variety of fruits, nuts, flowers, and even spices; plus shaved ice (raspados) and aguas frescas—the delightful Mexican drinks featuring whole fruit and exotic ingredients like tamarind and hibiscus flowers.

 

Whether you’re drawn to a simple burst of fresh fruit—as in the Coconut, Watermelon, or Cantaloupe pops—or prefer adventurous flavors like Mezcal-Orange, Mexican Chocolate, Hibiscus-Raspberry, or Lime Pie, Paletas is an inviting, refreshing guide guaranteed to help you beat the heat.

Synopsis:

The first collection of Mexican ice pop (paleta), natural beverage (agua fresca), and shaved ice (raspado) recipes for the United States from the country’s most authoritative voice on Mexican sweets, in a user-friendly, engaging package.

Lauded pastry chef Fany Gerson presents her 30 favorite flavorpacked paleta recipes as well as an array of 20 complementary shaved ices with innovative toppings and aguas frescas—the refreshing Mexican drinks made from whole fresh fruit and exotic ingredients. With its range of familiar favorites such as Coconut and Mango-Chile paletas, plus more adventurous flavors like Horchata-Strawberry and Dulce de Leche, this authentic, easy-to-use cookbook will appeal to anyone who has ever savored an ice pop on a hot summer’s day.

Vanessa Vichitvadakan, June 14, 2011 (view all comments by Vanessa Vichitvadakan)
My summer ritual for the last few years has been to make gallons and gallons of watermelon-lime agua fresca and chug it with abandon. This year, I figured it was time to expand my repertoire of refreshing summer treats, and this book was the perfect guide. Not only did I try out several other flavors of aguas frescas, but I also tried my hand at homemade popsicles (avocado, anyone?), which are easy and crowd-pleasing. The photographs are gorgeous and will make you want to make a freezerful of every tempting recipe in the book.
