$ 24.99| £ 19.99

From the kitchen of a world-renowned chef comes this treasury of authentic Mexican recipes inspired by the painter Frida Kahlo and filled with mouthwatering photography.

A little-known fact about iconic artist Frida Kahlo was her love of Mexican cuisine, especially that of her mother’s birthplace—Oaxaca. Frida loved dishes such as mole, tamales and enchiladas and savored trips to the market in Coyocan. Her famous Mole Poblano recipe, a chocolate-chili sauce, indispensable to Mexican cuisine, now hangs in the Frida Kahlo Museum in Mexico City. This luxurious cookbook is filled with authentic dishes that reflect Kahlo’s distinctive style. Saturated with color and flavor, it includes fundamental recipes for the building blocks of Mexican gastronomy—tortillas, moles, salsas, beans, chiles, and beverages—as well as classic dishes such as tacos with beef, pork and chicken; enchiladas, chilaquiles, and posole; flan and tres leches cake. Castellanos’ recipes are true to her own and Kahlo’s heritage, using traditional methods and ingredients that emphasize quality and taste over convenience foods. In engaging texts, Castellano explores Kahlo’s relationship to food, as well as the historic importance of Mexican culinary arts in Kahlo’s work. Anyone interested in authentic Mexican cooking will be drawn to the flavors and textures of Castellanos’ gorgeously illustrated recipes.
