Rick Bayless discusses and signs More Mexican Everyday: Simple, Seasonal, Celebratory

Vroman's Bookstore

695 E. Colorado Blvd, Pasadena, CA 91101


Rick Bayless transformed America's understanding of Mexican cuisine with his Mexican Everyday. Now, ten years later, he returns with an all-new collection of uniquely flavorful recipes.  More Mexican Everyday teaches home cooks how to make delicious meals with a few ingredients in a short amount of time. He explains the classic techniques that create so many beloved Mexican meals, from tacos and enchiladas to pozole and mole. “Everyday" Mexican also means simplicity, so Rick dedicates whole chapters to illustrate skillful use of the slow cooker and rice cooker.   Rick loves to highlight the use of seasonal vegetables. The heart of this cookbook is devoted to modern creations that range from a Jícama-Beet Salad inspired by Mexico’s classic Christmas Eve salad to a sweet-and-tangy butternut braise. Rick's flexible imagination also transforms breakfast into a meal for any hour. His Open-Face Red Chile–Chard Omelet is as great for Wednesday night dinner as it is for Sunday brunch. Also included are some of Rick's amazing desserts. Among them are his Mexican Chocolate–Pumpkin Seed Cake and Fresh Fruit with 24-Hour Cajeta and Bitter Chocolate.
