We get dozens of cookbooks each week at SAVEUR, and every month we share our favorite new releases—books that, through one avenue of greatness or another, have earned a place on our over-stuffed shelves. This time, the books that piqued our interest came from all over the world—the Middle East, Myanmar, Paris, the American South—and covered a variety of recipes, from Palestinian mezze to cooking candy.
Crystal-clear waters. White-sand beaches. Salt-rimmed margaritas. Canadian beef experts. One of these things is definitely not like the others, but in a recent stay at El Dorado Royale on Mexico’s Riviera Maya, I made the acquaintance of all four.
From a zesty seafood cocktail to thick tortillas bathed in two types of salsa and garnished with shredded chicken, and more, these eight recipes for small bites and first courses are gathered from across Mexico.
The flavors of Mexico are now as much a part of our national palate as traditional roast turkey and apple pie. This year, add some spice to your thanksgiving table with chile-rubbed turkey, brussels sprouts with chorizo, and potatoes sautéed with chiles.
Paletas are a favorite frozen treat made in an assortment of unusual flavors throughout Mexico. Here, we share five of our favorite flavors to make at home, including strawberry, mango-chile, tamarind, and more.
