Rick Bayless has done more to bring authentic Mexican cooking to America than any other cookbook author and chef. He is a five-time James Beard Award winner and the host of Mexico: One Plate at a Time. He is the chef-owner of Frontera Grill, Topolobampo, and Xoco. His cookbooks include Fiesta at Rick's, Mexican Everyday, and More Mexican Everyday.
When Rick set out to write “More Mexican Everyday,” he decided his ninth cookbook would be heavy on vegetable recipes.
Why? Many reasons, but mostly because fresh produce has never been more widely available and vegetables simply deserve better than getting tossed with pasta, which seems to be everyone’s default option. (Plus, we’re long past due to put vegetables at the center, not the sides, of our plates.)
While “More Mexican Everyday” readers will find easy-to-make recipes offering a new approach to traditional Mexican produce — and quite a few meat and poultry dishes — they’ll also discover the pleasure of introducing new vegetables into the Mexican kitchen.
The book is all about inspiring you fans of the kitchen to more freely cook for the sheer pleasure of it, rather than frantically checking (and re-checking) a recipe.
This is home cooking at the next level up.
You’ll find chapters on go-to recipes to know by heart, slow cookers, how-to’s on using salsas and adobo to speed up weeknight cooking and expert guidance on substitutes and variations.
And there are vegetables. Tons of vegetables. Three dozen vegetable recipes detailed in brilliant, vivid color. Vegetable recipes that will animate every visit to your farmers’ market or grocery store.
