Hi all
Any recommendations for a Mexican cookbook for my husband. He has declared today that he wants to learn how to cook a Mexican meal a month and i for one am super keen on this idea especially if it involves him cooking and me drinking margaritas!

He’s not got the most experience at cooking and is a little nervous in the kitchen so nothing too advanced.
Any recommendations would be gratefully received 😀

Thomasina Miers has written a few Mexican cookbooks, she won Masterchef a long time ago, and owns the Wahaca Mexican restaurant chain. I've cooked a few of her recipes and they are good.

I’ve just bought the Rick Stein one that accompanies his recent series and like the look of it. Not cooked anything yet but seems easy to follo and has some interesting recipes.

Great ideas thank you. I love wahaca so that would be a good place to start.!

You could go to the library and get a few...

Yep absolutely. I’ll see what we have in our local library and whether anything takes his fancy

The first Thomasina Murray book (Mexican made easy? Something like that. Not the Wahaca one) is absolutely amazing. You do need to make sure you’re using the correct chillis though as it makes a huge difference to the recipes. You can buy them online. Make the chipotles in adobo first as you need it for tons of recipes.

Well I’ve booked him a cooking lesson with a local Mexican chef and will head down to the library this week and see what leaps out at me!
Exciting.

See, I prefer the Wahaca book to Mexican made easy. And as for Rick Stein....hmm
