Summary

Vibrant, bright and utterly alive – no other country is quite like Mexico. And the food is unique, complex and unreservedly delicious. To the uninitiated, Mexican food is deceptively simple, but these pages uncover the diverse recipes bound up in the history of the country and its cultural heritage, as Jane Mason guides you through the essentials to vegetarian Mexican cuisine.  
 
With three different coast lines, seven climate zones and far ranging altitudes, the sheer variety of plant life in Mexico is outstanding, and perfect for a range of vegetarian recipes. Some of the world's most favourite ingredients originate in this incredible country – from sweet potatoes, vanilla and tomatoes to beans, squash and avocados – and this book is packed full of recipes that make the most of these stunning ingredients.  
 
Each and every dish has a subtle balance of flavours and textures, and there is much to discover beyond tacos, burritos and guacamole. Delve into this mouth-watering book and uncover recipes such as: 
 
broad bean and cactus soup 
poblano peppers stuffed with cheese 
tamales with refried beans 
albondigas in a red chipotle sauce 
 
And not forgetting the ultimate recipe for basic beans and a vast array of salsas.

    “Tenney Flynn is the grand master of Gulf Coast seafood. This book, full of his delicious recipes and deep sea wisdom, can lead you to mastery as well” (Lolis Eric Elie, author of Treme: Stories and Recipes from the Heart of New Orleans).   More than 100 delicious recipes and tips to help home cooks master cooking all kinds of seafood from the owner of GW Fins restaurant and two-time winner of the New Orleans Magazine “Chef of the Year” Award. Tenney Flynn’s easygoing, engaging style gives readers a tour of his hometown along with a toolkit for cooking seafood, from testing freshness at the market to pairing delicious fish recipes with sides and wines to create a finished menu. From classic Barbecued Shrimp and simple Sautéed Fillets with Brown Butter and Lemon to adventurous Pompano en Papillote with Oysters, Rockefeller Spinach, and Melted Tomatoes and sophisticated Lionfish Ceviche with Satsumas, Limes, and Chiles, Chef Flynn makes cooking fish “as easy as frying an egg.”   “Tenney Flynn talked trash (fish) early on. He championed fresh Gulf seafood when most chefs crushed on frozen Atlantic salmon. Now, it’s time to learn how smoked sizzling oysters came to be, how to do redfish on the half shell right, and how GW Fins helped lead the modern seafood revolution.” —John T. Edge, author of The Potlikker Papers: A Food History of the Modern South   “I love that Chef Tenney shares so much how-to and comprehensive info on seafood selection. Recipes are clear and concise, photos excellent.” —Frank Brigsten, James Beard Award-winning chef-owner of Brigtsen’s in New Orleans

Along with bread, wine is the gift we receive at the table of communion. Through these gifts we experience God's glorious and loving presence among us, feeding and nurturing us in body, soul, and spirit.Wine was never meant just for a small and elite group of well-to-do people but is for us all. Wine can reenchant the world and help us fall in love with it all over again. Come and savor its goodness.
