As I've mentioned in other blogposts, Mexico has a special place in my heart. The people. The culture. The food. Mexican cuisine is the one that I am most familiar with and some friends say, most adept at. If you live in Houston, please note that I offer hands-on cooking classes in my home and food tours of Houston markets for a nominal charge.
My best contact email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Here, then, is a list of my favorite (and recommended) cookbooks if you are planning to start making Mexican food at home.
These should all be available from Amazon. But, I recommend you see if you can find them at Casa Ramirez on 19th Street in the Heights, as then you will be supporting a very fine local business.
