Highlights

The combination plate  is delicious and deservedly beloved, but Mexican cuisine includes an incredible variety of ingredients and preparation methods beyond the staples of Tex-Mex. This month’s new acquisitions include cookbooks that focus on culinary areas many Americans may not automatically associate with Mexican food such as herbal tea, vegetarian specialties, sprouts, and African-inspired cuisine from Guerrero, Mexico.

Delicias Vegetarianas de México (2007) by Gloria Cardona.

Los Quelites, un Tesoro Culinario (2009) by Edelmira Linares Mazari and Judith Aguirre.

Sazón de la Cocina Afromestiza de Guerrero (2007) by Francisca Aparicio Prudente.
