Sandra Gutierrez's new cookbook is hip and delicious, evocative and practical, groundbreaking and wise.
Gutierrez guides us though marketplaces, street corners, plazas, and home kitchens, documenting traditions, celebrating
life, and explaining cultural distinctions along the way. She illuminates a vast category of cooking, spanning countries
and centuries, transcending political boundaries to place us on the street, in the vibrant market stalls, sampling
fresh, sizzling goodies from rolling carts and portable grills. Home cooks will find the recipes clear and accessible,
an irresistible invitation from Sandra Gutierrez to bring the sparkling flavors of Latin street food into their kitchens
and onto their tables.--Nancie McDermott, author of Southern Pies: A Gracious Plenty of Pie Recipes, from Lemon Chess to
Chocolate Pecan

"In Latin America there is a tenuous distinction between street food and the little dishes we eat as savory pick-me-ups
with coffee or drinks at casual restaurants or at home. Tamales are sold door to door by street vendors, but they can
also be the centerpiece of the Christmas Eve dinner. A fluid understanding of this central part of Latin cooking makes
Sandra A. Gutierrez's Latin American Street Food a welcome addition to any cook's library. The recipes in this colorful,
accessible, and enthusiastic cookbook can be a part of any formal or casual meal. They are delightful, easy to make, and
will bring the vibrancy and excitement of the Latin street food scene to your table.--Maricel E. Presilla, author of
Gran Cocina Latina: The Food of Latin America

Contemporary, hip, and full of recipes for less-recognized but deeply loved dishes, Latin American Street Food samples
the flavor and range of street foods while guiding readers of varying ages and skill sets.--Norman Van Aken, co-author
of My Key West Kitchen: Recipes and Stories
