La Cocinera Poblana takes a middle path between the nationalism of El Cocinero Mexicano and the Eurocentric Diccionario de Cocina, featuring a range of cuisine including a justly famous array of tamales (including the Diana Kennedy favorite flor de calabaza). Noteworthy sections on barbacoa (with an earth oven) and twelve recipes for the famous Puebla dish mole poblano.
La Cocinera Poblana's sensible mix of national and European cuisine was widely popular and the cookbook, originally published in 1877, was reprinted until at least 1929. Size: 8vo. 2-volume set (complete). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Cooking, Wine & Dining; Inventory No: CAT000250.
