From Library Journal:

Star of Food Network's Viva Daisy and columnist for Every Day with Rachael Ray, celebrity chef Daisy Martínez presents a second cookbook that showcases Latin American and Spanish dishes inspired by her family's travels throughout the Spanish-speaking world. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes are divided into three main sections aptly titled Morning, Noon, and Night, the latter being the most extensive, with subsections for weekday dinners, cocktail parties, dinner parties, and buffets. Martínez infuses each recipe with humor and a down-to-earth style, introducing certain dishes with an anecdote about the locale that served as the inspiration. The genesis of her scrambled eggs with shrimp recipe was a stop at a famous Buenos Aires café, while the Nuevo Andino-style gnocchi were influenced by a meal at a trendy restaurant near Machu Picchu. The final three sections are brief and provide menu suggestions, a helpful list of ingredients commonly used in Latin cooking, and tips on preparing staples such as chicken broth and sofrito, Martínez's signature seasoning base. With simple instructions, lush photography, and an easy, conversational tone, the content is well suited to novices and experienced cooks alike. Highly recommended for bookstores and public libraries.-Pamela Corante, Los Angeles (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
