I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED Mexican food. I remember visiting the markets near our family home with my mum and my grandma. I loved walking through the laneways full of fresh colourful produce, visiting the food stalls with their enticing smells and the Mexican drinks made fresh to order to cool you down on a hot summer’s day. Food is very important to Mexicans. It reconnects us to our past, our family and our feelings; it touches emotions that are always in our hearts, from the memory of our grandmas pottering in the kitchen to mothers teaching their children how to cook.

In this book, I give you the recipes that are dear to my heart, those that my dad gave to me, the ones that I have refined over months and years and then shared with new friends, and the most popular dishes from my tamaleria. These recipes are truly Mexican and full of love. I hope you enjoy them.
