A colorful array of 90 traditional and innovative dishes

Chapters include salsa and condiments (piquant sauce, smoky tomato ketchup, papaya and peanut salsa); tortilla cuisine (chiles con queso, chick pea and walnut empanadas); soups (melon and potato, avocado vichyssoise); pasta, rice and beans (vermicelli with tomatoes and chipotle chiles, Mexican pilaf, bean cakes); salads and vegetables (fava bean stew, cactus paddle salad); sweets (flan, rice pudding).

Gorgeous color photos are large close-ups of beatifully presented dishes and, while this is no low-fat cookbook, Wise uses no lard and has reduced fat in many recipes. She includes a glossary with preparation tips.
