Synopsis

A World of Food: Mexico by Geoff Barker

Food is something that we all have in common. We all need to eat to stay alive but the staggering variety of foods eaten around the world and the variety of ways in which they are cooked makes for a fascinating read. Do you know your tacos from your tortillas? There's much more to Mexican food than chilli peppers and rice! Discover all about the types of food Mexican people eat - from the traditional to the modern - and read about how food is used in cultural and religious celebrations, by families, in different regions and at different times of the year. Then have a go at making a Mexican dish of your own using one of the step-by-step recipes.A series of eight titles that explore food from eight very different countries around the world. Each book gives a brief overview of the history of food in each country before you delve deeper into what makes each a unique eating experience.
