This year brought forth, not one but TWO cookbook contracts, and so I spent 2014 traveling and writing, testing, and developing new recipes for you.
Meeting you during my book tour, signing events, and cooking classes around the country has been wonderful. I’ve enjoyed conversing with many of you, exchanging recipe ideas with others, and feeding you recipes from my books.
So here is my big announcement:
Drum roll please...
It is with great pride and joy that I unveil the cover of my next book, here first, for you to see.
I’m proud to announce that Empanadas: The Hand-Held Pies of Latin America, will launch on April 21, 2015! I also have a new publisher for this book: Stewart, Tabori & Chang, and a great team behind me. This, friends, will be an international release!
What this means is that all of my recipes in this book are written with both imperial and metric measurements so that my Canadian, European, Australian, Latin American, and other global friends can look forward to recreating these scrumptious recipes, as much as my American readers, without need of calculators to help you convert recipes. It’s all been done for you. For starters, Canadian and British friends, plan on seeing this book in your local bookstores this Spring!
Friends, please ask your local bookshops to order it for you so that this book can “get legs” and continue to walk around the globe. (And exciting feat, and not an impossible one since my last cookbook made it to Latin America, Asia, Israel, and beyond!).
As with my other books, you’ll find recipes from the entire territory of Latin America, all the way from Mexico to Argentina, and to Brazil. The amazing recipes selected for publication have been thoroughly tested (by me and many others) and you’ll enjoy a bit of history, a lot of fun trivia, cooking tips, and great stories about these small (and not-so-small) morsels.
If you love cookbooks with stunning photography, you’ll fall in love with Empanadas: The Hand-Held Pies of Latin America, as it’s filled with photographs shot by the amazing and world-renowned food photographer, Tina Rupp!
