favorite latin american cookbooks

I am in that wonderful position of having some credit
to spend at the bookstore, and have been having a good
time browsing the cookbooks. I'm looking for either
something that covers many different Latin American
cuisines (such as Elisabeth Ortiz's Book of
Latin American Cooking), or maybe a couple of
particularly good books with a narrower focus (I
thought Valldejuli's Puerto Rican Cookery and Copeland
Marks' False Tongues and Sunday Bread looked pretty
good).

Does anyone have any favorites or suggestions?

Also, although I usually wouldn't come close to a
low-fat, diet-modified cookbook, I was very impressed
with Steven Raichlen's Healthy Latin Cooking, and
actually most of his High-Flavor, Low-Fat series. He
seems to really love foods and flavors, and respects
the original recipes and their flavor combinations.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
