Mexican Regional Cooking - Diana Kennedy vintage cookbook. Question.

borisabrams | Dec 17, 201410:38 AM     6

Hi,

I was was just wondering if someone could tell me a little bit more about this book? I already have the original 'Cuisines of Mexico' and the 'Art of Mexican Cooking'.

How does this book differentiate from the other two books? Are there many similarities and overlaps? I looked at the index of recipes briefly and there does not seem to be that much. Does this book have the usual anthropological/historical details? Or is it more like the typical run of the mill recipes with the odd note here and there? I ask as I seem to be able to find very little reviews of this book. I am looking to buy the March 1985 edition (I believe there was a revision done after this?)

Many thanks,
Boris
