Reviews - What do customers think about Mexican Cooking for Dummies?

Poorly organized and lack of useful images  Jun 6, 2008
This book has a good written introductory chapter though fails beyond that. Here are three examples of the failings:
1. Salsa is constantly referred to in various recipes though the book does not have a salsa recipe.
2. There is no index to speak of. I could not lookup what page a salsa recipe was on, so rather flipped through the book twice not finding one.
3. Various Mexican vegetables are described which will not be familiar to the layperson which was good, though pictures of the vegetables were not included. It is great to know that I need jicama, chayote, and serrano peppers, though it is a bit hard to go and buy them if I am only going by a verbal description.

My recommendation is do not buy this book. Some decent points, though in sum total, the book is just frustrating and you would be better off with something else.
 
Not Enough Recipes  Jun 18, 2006
This book is somewhat disappointing. There are not enough recipes. There is too much commentary.
 
Disappointed  Apr 3, 2000
Having read numerous Mexican cookbooks and numerous "forDummies" books, I expected more.

Specifically:

o An emphasison the basics: kitchen equipment, herbs and spices, preparation methods, cooking techniques. And with adaquate illustrations;

o Some semblence of recipe organization. Recipes seem like a hodge-podge collection, with a less-than-effective 'theme/chapter' organization. END

Not a Dummie anymore! I love this style of book; it is simple, informative & concise. Especially helpful to the novice cook!
