    How to Cook dishes from Latin America


    Latin America Latin America is home to a wide range of different cuisines, inspired by many different influences including Spanish cuisine, Portuguese cuisine, and native American cuisines.

    It should be remembered that regions a range of different climatic areas, including the agricultural and cattle-ranching regions of Argentina, the Andes mountains in Peru, Mexico, and of course the Spanish-speaking islands of the Caribbean. Each of these regions of course produces different agricultural and food products, and has its owns culinary traditions, and so, as a result, Latin American cuisine is very diverse.

    Some popular Latin American recipes and dishes include:
    • Aji de gallina - This Peruvian recipe is made by coating thin strips of chicken with a spicy yellow sauce made from yellow chilis with bread, cheese, milk and walnuts.

    • Burrito - This Mexican recipe is made from a tortilla filled with meat, such as beef, chicken or pork. In Mexican cuisine meat is used for the only filling and the tortilla is thinly rolled. The dish has of course also been widely adopted in the the United States, and in American cuisine other ingredients (such as beans, cheese, rice, salsa, sour cream, tomatoes, etc.) are often added into the filling.

    • Empadas - Pastry pies from Brazilian cuisine. Many different fillings can be used, including beef, cheeese, chicken, palmito (heart of palm) and shrimp. In many cases, pieces of olive are mixed into the filling.

    • Empanadas - Baked or fried pastries usually containing various savory fillings from Argentine cuisine. There are many different varieties and fillings, including chicken, beef, boiled-egg, cheese, ham and cheese, fish, spinach, or humita (sweetcorn with white sauce). There are also dessert varieties, which normally contain fruit fillings.

      Empanadas

    • Enchilada - This dish from Mexican cuisine is based around a corn tortilla. The tortilla is dipped in oil or lard and echilada sauce, filled, rolled, and placed in a casserole dish. Sauce is then poured into the dish, and the whole thing baked in the oven.

      Enchiladas with rice and beans

    • Feijoada - This is stew from Brazilian cuisine is sometimes considered to Brazil's national dish. It contains black turtle beans and assorted meats, the meats usually including bacon, beef, jerked beef, salted pork, sausage, and smoked pork ribs. Feijoada is traditionally served together with rice, refined collar greens, roasted cassava flour, and an orange.

    • Milanesa - This dish from Argentine cuisine is somehwat similar to Austrian cuisine's Wiener schnitzel. A thin slice of meat (usually beef, but sometimes chicken or veal), is dipped in eggs, seasoned, and then covered with breadcrumbs and fried. The dish is often served with mashed potatoes as "milanesa con papas".

    • Mofongo (also known as "fou-fou") - This dish is found in Cuban cuisine and Puerto Rican cuisine. It is made from mashed plantains which are stuffed with chicken, pork or seafood.

    • Pachamanca - This is one of the most famous dishes in Peruvian cuisine. It is made by cooking marinated meat and assorted vegetables in an earthen oven (which is known as a "huatia").

    Product Description:

    Featured on the Netflix documentary series Chef’s Table

    “Elemental, fundamental, and delicious” is how Anthony Bourdain describes the trailblazing live-fire cooking of Francis Mallmann. The New York Times called Mallmann’s first book, Seven Fires, “captivating” and “inspiring.” And now, in Mallmann on Fire, the passionate master of the Argentine grill takes us grilling in magical places—in winter’s snow, on mountaintops, on the beach, on the crowded streets of Manhattan, on a deserted island in Patagonia, in Paris, Brooklyn, Bolinas, Brazil—each locale inspiring new discoveries as revealed in 100 recipes for meals both intimate and outsized. We encounter legs of lamb and chicken hung from strings, coal-roasted delicata squash, roasted herbs, a parrillada of many fish, and all sorts of griddled and charred meats, vegetables, and fruits, plus rustic desserts cooked on the chapa and baked in wood-fired ovens. At every stop along the way there is something delicious to eat and a lesson to be learned about slowing down and enjoying the process, not just the result.

    Product Description:
    A trailblazing chef reinvents the art of cooking over fire.

    Gloriously inspired recipes push the boundaries of live-fired cuisine in this primal yet sophisticated cookbook introducing the incendiary dishes of South America's biggest culinary star. Chef Francis Mallmann―born in Patagonia and trained in France's top restaurants―abandoned the fussy fine dining scene for the more elemental experience of cooking with fire. But his fans followed, including the world's top food journalists and celebrities, such as Francis Ford Coppola, Madonna, and Ralph Lauren, traveling to Argentina and Uruguay to experience the dashing chef's astonishing―and delicious―wood-fired feats.

    The seven fires of the title refer to a series of grilling techniques that have been singularly adapted for the home cook. So you can cook Signature Mallmann dishes―like Whole Boneless Ribeye with Chimichuri; Salt-Crusted Striped Bass; Whole Roasted Andean Pumpkin with Mint and Goat Cheese Salad; and desserts such as Dulce de Leche Pancakes―indoors or out in any season. Evocative photographs showcase both the recipes and the exquisite beauty of Mallmann's home turf in Patagonia, Buenos Aires, and rural Uruguay. Seven Fires is a must for any griller ready to explore food's next frontier.

    International Latino Book Award winner, Best Cookbook

    More than just a cookbook, Decolonize Your Diet redefines what is meant by "traditional" Mexican food by reaching back through hundreds of years of history to reclaim heritage crops as a source of protection from modern diseases of development. Authors Luz Calvo and Catriona Rueda Esquibel are life partners; when Luz was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006, they both radically changed their diets and began seeking out recipes featuring healthy, vegetarian Mexican foods. They promote a diet that is rich in plants indigenous to the Americas (corn, beans, squash, greens, herbs, and seeds), and are passionate about the idea that Latinxs in America, specifically Mexicans, need to ditch the fast food and return to their own culture's food roots for both physical health and spiritual fulfillment.
    This vegetarian cookbook features over 100 colorful, recipes based on Mesoamerican cuisine and also includes contributions from indigenous cultures throughout the Americas, such as Kabocha Squash in Green Pipian, Aguachile de Quinoa, Mesquite Corn Tortillas, Tepary Bean Salad, and Amaranth Chocolate Cake. Steeped in history but very much rooted in the contemporary world, Decolonize Your Diet will introduce readers to the the energizing, healing properties of a plant-based Mexican American diet.
    Full-color throughout.
    Luz Calvo and Catriona Rueda Esquibel are professors at California State East Bay and San Francisco State University, respectively. They grow fruits, vegetables, and herbs on their small urban farm. This is their first book.

    The Cuban Table is a comprehensive, contemporary overview of Cuban food, recipes and culture as recounted by serious home cooks and professional chefs, restaurateurs and food writers. Cuban-American food writer Ana Sofia Pelaez and award-winning photographer Ellen Silverman traveled through Cuba, Miami and New York to document and learn about traditional Cuban cooking from a wide range of authentic sources.

    Here you'll find documented recipes for everything from iconic Cuban sandwiches to rich stews with Spanish accents and African ingredients, accompanied by details about historical context and insight into cultural nuances. More than a cookbook, The Cuban Table is a celebration of Cuban cooking, culture and cuisine. With stunning photographs throughout and over 110 deliciously authentic recipes this cookbook invites you into one of the Caribbean's most interesting and vibrant cuisines.

    Product Description:

    Americans have at last discovered Mexico's passion for exciting food. We've fallen in love with the great Mexican combination of rich, earthy flavors and casual, festive dining. But we don't begin to imagine how sumptuous and varied the cooking of Mexico really is.

    After ten years of loving exploration, Rick Bayless, together with his wife, Deann, gave us Authentic Mexican, this now classic, easy-to-use compendium of our southern neighbor's cooking.

    This all-embracing cookbook offers the full range of dishes, from poultry, meat, fish, rice, beans, and vegetables to eggs, snacks made of corn masa, tacos, turnovers, enchiladas and their relatives, tamales, and moles, ending with desserts, sweets, and beverages. There are irresistible finger foods such as Yucatecan marinated shrimp tacos and crispy cheese-filled masa turnovers; spicy corn chowder and chorizo sausage with melted cheese will start off a special dinner; you will find mole poblano, charcoal-grilled pork in red-chile adobo, and marinated fish steamed in banana leaves for those times when you want to celebrate; and exotic ice creams, caramel custards, and pies to top off any meal. There's even a section devoted to refreshing coolers, rich chocolate drinks, and a variety of tequila-laced cocktails.

    The master recipes feature all the pointers you'll need for re-creating genuine Mexican textures and flavors in a North American kitchen. Menu suggestions and timing and advance-preparation tips make these dishes perfectly convenient for today's working families. And traditional and contemporary variations accompany each recipe, allowing the cook to substitute and be creative.

    Rick and Deann Bayless traveled more than thirty-five thousand miles investigating the six distinct regions of Mexico and learning to prepare what they found. From town to town, recipe by recipe, they personally introduce you to Mexico's cooks, their kitchens, their markets, and their feasts.

    If, like the rest of us, you have a growing love for Mexican food, the reliable recipes in this book and the caring, personal presentation by Rick and Deann Bayless will provide meal after meal of pure pleasure for your family and friends.
