|This is a wonderful book about the food of Mexico that I did not know about, but now I really am looking forward to making some. The recipes look easy to follow, pictures are wonderful to go along with the book. The author gives you a history of the dessert and a little of Mexico. When I saw rice- pudding flavor the author had me. My wife’s grandmother made rice pudding and some other traditional dishes around the holidays, but not as ice cream. This now is something to look forward to in the summertime for something different, but the flavors sound so very good. An excellent book for anyone’s collection. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars. Follow us atwww.1rad-readerreviews.com|
