Edith Metcalfe de Plata
Edith Metcalfe de Plata compiled this cookbook from her first-hand experience as manager of a vegetarian restaurant in Guadalajara, Mexico.



Authentic national dishes of Mexico, including vegetarian adaptations of Tacos, Enchiladas, and Guacamole, are included in this colleciton of recipes. Here are the exciting flavors of Mexico in an easy-to-use cookbook that features wholefood ingredients at their best. 

• While we think of Mexican cuisine as primarily meat-based, in actual practice, most Mexican dishes are vegetarian.

• Includes recipes for beverages, soups, salads, casseroles, and desserts.

• Provides a glossary of frequently-used utensils and ingredients, with an entire reference section devoted to chilis.

"The stuffed chiles and the pasta y queso are to die for! Compiled from the author's first-hand experience as a manager of vegetarian restaurant in Mexico, this book is reasonably priced and would make a great gift."
