FABULOUS recipes but no DVD
 from New York, NY,  Dec 8, 2006

After watching Daisy's show on PBS I bought the cookbook thinking that like PBS offering, this would include the DVD. It didn't and it can't be purchased separately. I also paid more for it...the price has gone down since I got it. However, I've used dozens of recipes from this book and they're all wonderful. I'm fortunate enough to live in an area where latin grocery items are plentiful, but for those of you who may not, Daisy does try to offer substitutions that might be easier to find. Some of the recipes though, just won't do without the real thing. Annato seeds for example to make achiote oil which is used in many of the recipes. I had a heck of a time finding them (got them via mail order and they're dirt cheap) same with epazote, an herb that only grows in Mexico; Culantro which, as Daisy says, is Cilantro times 10, and when I found it, she was right. She suggests you double up on cilantro if you can't find it. Recipes you MUST try...Chicken with Figs. It takes some work but it is so worth it; Romaine Salad with Blue Cheese and Beets - sounds a little odd, tastes wonderful (and I'm not a beet person)! Asparagus with Citrus Vinaigrette. I could eat tons of this! The Caldo which is a latin version of a New England Boiled Dinner and Cuban Sandwiches...she shows you how to make them without a sandwich press. This book is a must have for any cook who loves bold flavours or wants to learn some new cooking techniques. You'll find sofrito becoming a new permanent addition to your repertoire.

So many good recipes. I made the stuffed poblanos last night. They were excellent!! She also has an awesome sofrito recipe which can be added to any dish to add TONS of flavor.

I wanted this book for a year because I loved her tv show and only got it on my cable for a short time. I love the stories and the basics are great the only thing that I am very disapointed with is that there were very little pictures for the finished product also I love cook books that stay open easily. I hope this help and I would buy another book of Daisy's.

I have found recipes in this book I thought I would never find. It's easy to follow. The only thing I thought it needed were more pictures. Overall I would reccommend this book.
