Review by wyvernfriend
In my book it's not quite a beginner's mexian cookery book, but not far off it. You'd need to know a few things before embarking on this book but it's fairly simply done. You'd also need to search a bit for ingredients, although she does offer some options scattered throughout the book. It's interesting fare.
