Very Fast Shipping

Book in good condition and was a great price! The book is an old favorite so I was looking to relace my old tattered version. I love the flow of the book. The receipes help break of the text but also help make connections with the reader. Not to mention that they are pretty tasty:)

Good examples of using food to describe a forbidden relationship.


Lick the Spoon, Buckos, It's That Good

This was a great book, delicious and sumptuous to the last page. A woman, who is pressed into submission by her dictator-like mother, is forbidden to marry the man she loves. He in turn marries her older sister to be closer to her. The kitchen is our heroine?s workshop. Whatever she is feeling gets swept up into the meal she is making, affecting those who eat it. The lust she feels claims her younger sister, the sorrow inside her crushes her family to tears. Each chapter walks you through the recipes that are created during the story. This was a grand book with a magical realism for spice.
