The Novisimo Arte de Cocina shares the mantle of first Mexican cookbook with El Cocinero Mexicana, both published in 1831. More in the line of a colonial cookbook, a higher percentage of the recipes are derived from European sources than in El Cocinero Mexicano, but a fine array of dishes are represented including drinks and desserts. Nun's sighs, enchiladas, and a mole recipe all make an appearance. Size: 8vo. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Cooking, Wine & Dining; Inventory No: CAT000248.
