Originally Published 1934
The classic cookbook of true New Mexican recipes from the Territorial era
by Erna Fergusson
This popular cookbook has sold more copies than any other native cookbook ever printed in the Southwest. First published in 1934, it contains recipes for the foods that are now served in trendy restaurants nationwide--enchiladas, chile rellenos, and carne adovada. But the heart of this cookbook consists of simple, rustic food served in New Mexican homes--green chile sandwiches, a lamb-based cold soup, and sweet rice. Techniques for preparing freshly grown food, while unnecessary thanks to modern supermarkets, bring back the ambience and spirit of territorial New Mexico.
"When a book has been reprinted fourteen times, people must like it. . . . Highly recommended--hungry or not!" —True West
