Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Just saw Claudia on Master Chef! I absolutely loved her on season Six of Master Chef but fell in love with her food when I bought this cookbook. It is filled with easy to follow, yet authentic Mexican recipes, beautiful pictures and incredible stories that will leave you feeling like you know who Claudia is through her love of cooking. If you want some real home cooking recipes buy this book. I’d also recommend anything by Chef Jai Scovers, especially her books, “Conquer Your Kitchen,” which I bought for all of the women in my family. I haven’t cooked a meal without it since I bought my copy. Buy a copy and find out why. I also recommend her book, “Simple, Healthy and Delicious.” I absolutely love the Roasted Chicken when paired with the Forbidden Rice. Amazing! Buy it, borrow it, get it!
