, The popular primer to Latino life and culture?updated for 2008
Latinos represent the fastest-growing ethnic population in the United States. In an accessible and entertaining question-and-answer format, this completely revised 2008 edition provides the most current perspective on Latino history in the making, including:
? New Mexico governor Bill Richardson?s announced candidacy for the 2008 presidential election
? Ugly Betty?the hit ABC TV show based on the Latino telenovela phenomenon
? The number of Latino players in Major League baseball surpassing the 25 percent mark
? Immigration legislation and the battle over the Mexican border
? The state of Castro?s health and what it means for Cuba
More than ever, this concise yet comprehensive reference guide is the ideal introduction to the vast and varied history and culture of this multifaceted ethnic group., In the first cookbook to encompass the full spectrum of Latin American cooking all across America today, Himilce Novas and Rosemary Silva offer 200 enticing recipes that have been drawn from the home kitchens of Americans with roots in Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Jamaica, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Guatemala, and nearly every other corner of Latin America.
Spicy, colorful, and full of surprises, Latin flavors are the latest rage with Nuevo Latino chefs from New York to Los Angeles. But here the exotic is translated into wonderful everyday dishes that home cooks can easily master.
For starters, Novas and Silva give us luscious Chilled Roasted Sweet Red Pepper and Coconut Soup or Orange-Scented Roasted Pumpkin Soup and appetizers known as antojitos ("little whims")--Bayamo's Fried Wontons with Chorizo and Chiles or a Costa Rican Black Bean and Bacon Dip.
For main courses, there are hearty delights like Piri Thomas's Chicken Asopao or a Heavenly Potato Pie with Minced Beef, Raisins, and Olives.
Center stage in many a meal are the rice and bean dishes with countless delicious variations on the theme, like Gallo pinto, Red Kidney Beans and Rice, and "Jamaican coat of arms",also called Rice and Peas (which are actually small red beans).
And to satisfy the Latin appetite any time of day, also included here is a rich array of tamales, empanadas, and other turnovers, like Little Brazil Shrimp Turnovers stuffed with shrimp and hearts of palm.
From Cristina, the Cuban American talk show hostess in Miami, to U.S. Representative Henry B. Gonzlez of Texas, from film producers and opera singers to young students and grandmothers, the authors have gathered, along with the family recipes and their origins, stories of the past and of the good times celebrated in America. Novas and Silva also offer invaluable information on Latin American chiles, on the earthy appeal of plantains and tubers like yuca and taro, and on other special foods that give these dishes their unique character, along with mail-order sources for hard-to-get ingredients.
An exuberant one-of-a-kind cookbook that will add a new dimension to the American table., A poor ignorant campesino on a large Cuban plantation becomes innocently embroiled in revolution and an earth-shaking, although brief, affair with his patron's daughter. He escapes persecution with his newborn daughter just before the cataclysm befalls Cuban society. Unknown to father and daughter, a twin brother was born shortly after their escape. Juan grows up pampered and spoiled in the lap of luxury among the wealthiest class of Cubans in Miami, but nevertheless senses that something fundamental is missing in his life of splendors. The beautiful, humble Esmeralda grows up in Spanish Harlem as the daughter of a fundamentalist preacher who honors his deceased wife by abusing the unwitting girl, who resembles her so. Widely seen to have inherited her father's mysticism, Esmeralda becomes the pride and wonder of El Barrio. Then, one day, a handsome young man is drawn to her church, to her life, to her love. All of the spirits, the muses, nature itself, have conspired to bring together the now inseparable pair. Neither the violence of her libidinous father nor the financial resources of Juan's parents can tear the two asunder in this marvelous satire of magic realism and the literature of exile and immigration.
