This article, therefore, draws attention to the overlooked work of Spanish American women authors and argues for the significance of a speech Esquivel gave at one of the most important events in the Spanish American literary calendar, the Feria del Libro held in Guadalajara, Mexico in This speech aimed to define a nueva literatura in relation to a tradition of women authors. Yet it has been overlooked. The key features of this new literature are the breaking down of barriers that separate food and domestic knowledge, and written knowledge and food and sexual pleasure.

I was definitely more engaged with some pieces more than others because they were taken out of context. For instance, I really enjoyed reading a few of the cookbook introductions but because they were just intros, it felt abrupt and unsatisfying when they ended. I had opened the book briefly and fell in love with the drawings that appeared on each side and bottom of every page. Let it henceforth be known that I will travel near and far for the chance of meeting delicious mole- red, green, Oaxacan Black, whichever.
However, I love the stories that surround Oaxacan Black Mole in When I originally found this book in the library, I believe it was fate. However, I love the stories that surround Oaxacan Black Mole in particular. I have heard many stories about how recipes are passed from one magical cook to the next with the number of ingredients ranging from something to I did enjoy this account of Mole, as well as the rest of the book, yet my favorites were "Cooking with Chiles", "Lowfat Mayonnaise", and "Apolonio".
Some of the articles are quite interesting, but after a couple of chapters the material seems rather repetitive. If the reader had been provided with an indication of the context of each piece - all of which have been published elsewhere - I think this would have added to the value of the collection. The design and layout of the book cannot be faulted; the line drawings, which wrap around the page, are fabulous.
I am afraid that for once I did not finish the book, although I had found the premise so attractive. Un libro muy personal con toda la escencia de la autora.
