Description



About the Book



Bring the authentic flavors of Mexico into your kitchen with The Mexican Home Kitchen, featuring 85+ recipes for every meal and occasion.



Book Synopsis



The long-awaited, best-selling cookbook from Mely Martínez, The Mexican Home Kitchen, compiles the traditional home-style dishes enjoyed every day in Mexican households, with influences from states like Tamaulipas, Nuevo León, Veracruz, Puebla, Estado de México, and Yucatán.

*As featured in The New York Times, New York Magazine, People Magazine, The Smithsonian Magazine, Eater, Epicurious, Chowhound, The Kitchn, Prevention, and Taste of Home*

Illustrated with stunning photography, this book includes recipes for stews, soups, and side dishes, along with famous dishes like mole, enchiladas, picadillo, and milanesa, and is rounded out with delicious salsas, drinks, and desserts.

For Mely Martínez, Mexican cooking has always been about family, community, and tradition. Born and raised in Tampico, Mely started helping in the kitchen at a very young age, since she was the oldest daughter of eight children, and spent summers at her grandmother's farm in the state of Veracruz, where part of the daily activities included helping grind the corn to make masa.

Mely started her popular blog, Mexico in My Kitchen, to share the recipes and memories of her home so that her son can someday recreate and share these dishes with his own family. In the meantime, it has become the go-to source for those looking for authentic home-style Mexican cooking.

About the Author



Mely Martínez started her blog, Mexico in My Kitchen, in 2008 for her teenage son, hoping that someday he will use it to recreate the Mexican food his mom made for the family. Mely was born and raised in the city of Tampico, Tamaulipas, and started helping in the kitchen at a very young age, since she was the oldest daughter of eight children. She and her siblings spent summers at her grandmother's farm in the state of Veracruz, where part of the daily activities included helping to grind corn for making masa and gathering firewood for the woodburning stove. At the age of twenty, Mely moved to southern Mexico, where she worked as a teacher. This job gave her the opportunity to travel to all the states in the Yucatán Peninsula, and enjoy their excellent and unique cuisine. Throughout the years, she lived in other states in Mexico, and has traveled to most of them. By now, she had moved more than twenty times! Mely enjoys cooking classic meals that are eaten every day in Mexico, and sharing them with her followers around the world. Her recipes are created from knowledge gained throughout her studies, travels, and life experiences. She lives in Dallas, Texas.
