Historic Mexican recipes and a woman discovering who she is--come and join Diane Dozal Bosch as she takes us back to the nineteenth and twentieth century kitchens of her ancestors. Together, we will journey with them from Mexico to America, and see how food became a gift that was passed from generation to generation. With Diane, we experience the nostalgia and romance of the period as well as the sentiment and history of each dish.
For Diane, cooking was a part of her family but it wasn't until she realized that she didn't know how to make these recipes for herself that she began this journey of self-discovery. From tamales to buñuelos, Diane has devoted more than three decades to this project, which we join along with her through photos of first recipes, a cooking show contest, vintage family photos, to professional photoshoots.
This book may not have been something she planned on, starting by "just measuring ingredients with my mother," but it evolved into a historic story we can share with her. Join Diane and her ancestors in the kitchen and receive "Her Gift" for yourself!
