Item Description...

Southwest the Beautiful Cookbook explores a cuisine as diverse as the terrain and the people who settled there. The region's culinary originality derives from a historic union of native American, European and Mexican cultures, each contributing its own distinctive cooking traditions to produce what we know today as Southwestern fare. This cuisine is sumptuously presented in Southwest the Beautiful Cookbook with more than 200 recipes illustrated with stunning full-color photography. Noted Pheonix-based cooking teacher and food writer Barbara Pool Fenzl has gathered recipes that combine innovative techniques and dynamic food combinations with historic methods and ethnic contibutions to produce dishes as vibrant and exciting as the Southwest itself; shellfish tamales with ancho cream, quail salad with pumpkin seeds, sopiapillas and jalapeo chutney and so much more.

Complementing the recipe chapters are informative essays by noted author and Southwest enthusiast Norman Kolpas, along with glorious photography that bring this wonderful region to life on the printed page. The people, geography, and history of the area are skillfully portrayed in scenic photography and richly anecdotal text. Home to such awe-inspiring natural wonders as the Grand Canyon, Arches National Park, Mesa Verde and the Sonoran Desert, this region is a land of austere beauty, rich culture and a uniquecuisine that is very much alive in this gorgeous addition to the Beautiful Cookbook series.

Cook book  Dec 21, 2008
My Dad bought this book and he Loves it! There are great recipes and has a picture of each dish...
Flawless  Nov 11, 2007
I've tried more recipes from this book than any of my other cookbooks and have never been disappointed. The pictures are alluring, the instructions are clear, and the flavor combinations have been excellent. My favorite recipes to date are the tortilla soup and the corn fritters.
Beautiful Cookbook  Jul 9, 2007
The whole series of "Beautiful Cookbooks" is first-rate.

The pictures are an added bonus to recipes that are usually easy to reproduce. I bought this for my mom for Mother's Day and she likes it very much. I use my own copy frequently, too.
Beautiful, dated, but still useful.  Aug 11, 2006
The styling and recipes in this book reflect the time in which they were encapsulated, but they're still beautiful nonetheless. We keep it on the coffee table in our Southwest rental house as a primer to Southwest cooking and culture for out-of-town guests.
More than just the recipes...  Jun 26, 2002
As with the rest of the "Beautiful Cookbook" series, this is more than a cookbook full of wonderful recipes -- it is a book of wonderful pictures of food, of the stories behind the people and of the traditions of the culture.

I collect this series because:
a) The recipes are always incredible
b) The presentation is always unique & intriguing
c) The recipes are simple for beginning to intermediate cooks
d) The stories and information makes it more than just food, but an experience.

The only "watch-out" I give is that the recipes are authentic and on occasion I have found finding some of the ingredients very difficult. However, the book usually will suggest alternatives.
