yes, hounds, if you haven't guessed already i have a strand gift certificate and am looking to expand my cooking repertoire. which diana kennedy book do you recommend:
1. essential cuisines of mexico (the classics, combined)
2. from my mexican kitchen: techniques and ingredients (the new one, with pictures)
another option would be mexico, one plate at a time by rick bayless. however, i'm leaning towards diana kennedy. thoughts? thanks.
