In her vivacious, fresh voice, Marcela Valladolid invigorates America’s taste for real Mexican food–dishes that can be accomplished on any busy weeknight but that still express the authentic flavors of her native cuisine. Growing up in Mexico, Marcela Valladolid rejoiced in the complex moles, dozens of different chiles, and homemade tortillas that graced her family’s dinner table. Going to school across the border in San Diego, and later to cooking school in Paris, she found plenty to love in the markets, quickly folding new ingredients into her repertoire. But she also encountered some curious foods masquerading as authentic Mexican: cheddar cheese—stuffed quesadillas, tortilla chips drowning in still more cheese, and the ubiquitous everything-but-the-kitchen-sink overstuffed burritos. Where were the authentic, easy-to-prepare Mexican recipes she grew up with? The brightly flavored seafood ceviches bursting with freshness? The simple, slender burritos filled with nothing more than intensely flavorful braised meat and blistered chiles? The healthy salsas that come together in minutes but can transform a meal? In Fresh Mexico, Marcela brings these dishes to life. Her food is much like her, Mexican but influenced by other cultures. You’ ll find recipes for Tilapia Ceviche; Butternut Squash—Chipotle Bisque; Roasted Pork Loin with Pineapple Glaze; Ancho-Chocolate Braised Short Ribs; and Fresh Guava Layer Cake. Inspired ideas, helpful cooking techniques, and ingredient substitutions make this the most accessible, appealing, and contemporary Mexican cookbook you’ll find today. In addition, fast recipes and dishes that are low in fat are called out with easy-to-find symbols. With more than a hundred delicious recipes and beautiful color photography throughout, Fresh Mexico introduces a new generation of Americans to the vibrant flavors of modern Mexico.

México fresco te brinda todo el sabor de la cocina mexicana con deliciosas recetas sin ninguna complicación Marcela nos dice: "Mi comida, como verás en este libro, es muy parecida a mí. Es mexicana pero influenciada por otras culturas. Es sofisticada en su presentación pero fácil de preparar. También, mis recetas no son los moles, pipianes o salsas cien por ciento auténticos y tradicionales que puedes encontrar en los libros de recetas de maestros... Aquí encontrarás todos los sabores auténticos sin tener que comprar quince ingredientes difíciles de encontrar y después esclavizarte en la cocina por horas". Aquí encontrarás recetas como Ceviche de tilapia, Sopa de calabaza y chipotle, Dorado ahumado en hojas de plátano, Lomo de cerdo asado con glaseado de piña, Estofado de costillas con chile ancho y chocolate, Pastel de guayaba fresca en capas y un capítulo entero dedicado a las sabrosísimas salsas mexicanas. Ideas inspiradoras, útiles técnicas de cocina, e ingredientes alternativos, además de recetas rápidas y otras bajas en grasa señaladas para que las encuentres fácilmente, hacen de este el libro de cocina mexicana más accesible, atractivo y moderno que hoy por hoy encontrarás.
