The Edible Selby book - coming October, 2012.
My Sweet Mexico By: Fany Gerson Ten Speed Press, 2012. Mexico is a dessert-lover's paradise, and Mexican pastry chef Fany Gerson's book is a fitting ode to all things dulce. Puebla's sweet potato confections; tres leches cake; frozen treats like paletas (ice pops); chile-dusted tamarind bonbons—the diversity of sweets is fantastic. After cooking from its chapter devoted to maiz desserts, we'll never look at an ear of corn in the same way again. From: saveur.com
The Taste of Mexico Patricia Quintana Stewart, Tabori & Chang, 1986. For a straightforward guide to the fundamentals of regional Mexican cooking, we turn to Mexico City chef Patricia Quintana's well-curated overview of her country's cuisines. Its recipes for classic dishes—from the Yucatán's papadzules (tortillas in a toasted pumpkin-seed sauce) to stuffed shrimp from the Pacific coast of the northwest state of Sinaloa—are lucid and inviting.

"The useless days will add up to something. The shitty waitressing jobs. The hours writing in your journal. The long meandering walks. The hours reading poetry and story collections and novels and dead people’s diaries and wondering about sex and God and whether you should shave under your arms or not. These things are your becoming." - Cheryl Strayed
