Praise

Cartin’s second cookbook (Dessert Party, 2014) provides over 7 dishes, which sure to be both familiar and not, that home chefs can readily master. Mostly designated as either easy or intermediate in difficulty, the recipes also offer clear instructions, good color photographs, and serving or technique tips, such as the best methods for heating tortillas. One-page introductions for each of the 10 represented countries’ cuisines identify prevalent culinary themes—chocolate and avocado in Mexico; a Germanic influence in Chile; and corn, squash, and potatoes in Costa Rica—and provide important differentiations in beginning to understand gastronomic customs. Old and soon-to-be favorites nestle comfortably: huevos rancheros and crab stew, bollo picante vegetarian (steamed spicy vegetarian cornmeal roll) and alfajores. Home cooks will find a good avenue to segue into acknowledged experts of specific cuisines, like Rick Bayless for Mexican. Metric conversions and yields for common ingredients are included.
