For the love of dessert
When one thinks of Mexican food, visions of spicy, slow-cooked meats, accompanied by rice or beans, dances in one’s head. But what about the rich world of Mexican desserts? Moving well beyond flan, My Sweet Mexico by Fany Gerson jumps feet first into all the sweet treats from the diverse country. Available from 10 Speed Press, My Sweet Mexico includes Sweet Fried Masa Cakes, Mango Bread Pudding with Tamarind Sauce, Upside Down Plantain cake, and countless frozen treats. But as summer really begins to wind down here in LA, I’m going to wish it a fond farewell with coconut stuffed limes. My Sweet Mexico is a beautiful and eye opening book, available now for $30, in stores and online.
