Foolproof Mexican recipes for families of all kinds, to preserve old traditions and create new ones, from star chef Marcela Valladolid

Hola familia!

This book is what happened when I stopped writing recipes to meet someone else’s expectations and started cooking just for myself and my familia. Dishes I never had the courage to make on TV, even though they’re totally achievable. Flavors that brought me back to childhood. Recipes that preserve meaningful traditions for the future.

These dishes helped me reclaim my voice and my power in the kitchen. And you can trust that they’re going to work in your home because I tested them in live classes with thousands of students cooking along. More important, you can trust them to bring joy and connection to the people you love. And a whole lotta flavor. Dishes include:

  • Birria Quesatacos
  • Chipotle Chilaquiles
  • Plant-Based Enchiladas with "Creamy" Chipotle Salsa
  • Pollo con Papas with Arugula Salsa Verde
  • Café de la Olla
  • Fluffy Pineapple Tamales
  • Mango Upside Down Cake

Everyone is invited to this fiesta. No matter who you are or where you come from, you can cook. You’ve got this.

Gracias, familia. A cocinar!
