“As a multi-faceted author, gracious hostess and cook, Ruth has long been admired by her many friends who have been invited to her dinners. One cannot forget her multi-ethnic specialties, among them Romanian eggplant salad, Colombian Ajiaco potato soup, Bukovinian Schmettentorte (sour cream cake), to name just a small sampling of her culinary repertoire. French gastronome Jean Brillat-Savarin once remarked that ‘the discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of the new race than the discovery of a star.’ George Bernard Shaw also believed that there was no love more sincere than the love of food. A sampling of the recipes from this book readily confirms both opinions.”

—Vladimir F. Wertsman, author of What’s Cooking in Multicultural America (Scarecrow Press, 1996)

This is an unpretentious cookbook designed for epicurean tastes. It is also a tribute to the women of various ethnic backgrounds who left us the legacy of fine cuisine, which I hope to pass on to future generations. The majority of these recipes are from Bukovina, once Northern Romania, and other countries which were once part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Some of the Bukovinian dishes are almost legendary in their nostalgia. Many have never before been documented and, most probably, have never been featured on restaurant menus.

I have wandered across four continents and have experienced life under monarchies, communism, and fascism, all of which I survived. These multiple acculturations were extremely difficult, but had also some positive effects: one of them being the acquisition of a myriad of recipes. I am pleased to share with you some of them in the hope that you will enjoy this adventure as much as I did.

—Ruth Glasberg Gold

Americans have at last discovered Mexico's passion for exciting food. We've fallen in love with the great Mexican combination of rich, earthy flavors and casual, festive dining. But we don't begin to imagine how sumptuous and varied the cooking of Mexico really is.

After ten years of loving exploration, Rick Bayless, together with his wife, Deann, gave us Authentic Mexican, this now classic, easy-to-use compendium of our southern neighbor's cooking.

This all-embracing cookbook offers the full range of dishes, from poultry, meat, fish, rice, beans, and vegetables to eggs, snacks made of corn masa, tacos, turnovers, enchiladas and their relatives, tamales, and moles, ending with desserts, sweets, and beverages. There are irresistible finger foods such as Yucatecan marinated shrimp tacos and crispy cheese-filled masa turnovers; spicy corn chowder and chorizo sausage with melted cheese will start off a special dinner; you will find mole poblano, charcoal-grilled pork in red-chile adobo, and marinated fish steamed in banana leaves for those times when you want to celebrate; and exotic ice creams, caramel custards, and pies to top off any meal. There's even a section devoted to refreshing coolers, rich chocolate drinks, and a variety of tequila-laced cocktails.

The master recipes feature all the pointers you'll need for re-creating genuine Mexican textures and flavors in a North American kitchen. Menu suggestions and timing and advance-preparation tips make these dishes perfectly convenient for today's working families. And traditional and contemporary variations accompany each recipe, allowing the cook to substitute and be creative.

Rick and Deann Bayless traveled more than thirty-five thousand miles investigating the six distinct regions of Mexico and learning to prepare what they found. From town to town, recipe by recipe, they personally introduce you to Mexico's cooks, their kitchens, their markets, and their feasts.

If, like the rest of us, you have a growing love for Mexican food, the reliable recipes in this book and the caring, personal presentation by Rick and Deann Bayless will provide meal after meal of pure pleasure for your family and friends.
