Adela Amador's sequel to TWELVE GIFTS is back!|
More Gifts by Adela Amador, 20 pp,
FROM A SOUTHWEST KITCHEN
by Adela Amador
illustrated by Claiborne O'Connor
We launched the second printing of MORE GIFTS (originally published in 1992) with a Mother's Day Book Bash featuring the original artwork of Claiborne O'Connor, and delicious treats from Adela's collection of family recipes. (Above, Fresh Rhubarb Pie and Fresh Apricot Loaf.)
"It's so beautiful!" "It's so helpful!" You told us that Adela's recipes in Twelve Gifts are clear, simple and easy to follow, and that they bring good results.
But you had additional comments. "Where's the sopa?" [meaning our southwestern bread pudding, not "soup"] "And your recipe for beans?" [meaning frijoles pintos] "And Adela's legendary pies!"
All the recipes in this book, and in Twelve Gifts, have been
carefully and rigidly tested, some over a thirty-year period, by
the multitudes who have feasted at Adela's table, and by me. I
can personally vouch for them all. I regard myself as the
luckiest consumer of the best home-made pies in the world. The
pie crust recipe given here is the basis for dozens of variations:
lemon, pumpkin, cherry, peach. Two of my favorites are here:
apple and rhubarb. Here's hoping you get lucky, too!
We are proud to present the work of two very fine artists:.
Adela Amador and Claiborne O'Connor.
