Let this book & DVD feed your appetite!

Dear fellow food lover:

I wrote the “Savor the Southwest” cookbook for people who like zesty, colorful, healthy dishes that can double as casual family fare or elegant entertaining. This is a companion book to the 13-week public television series, and it includes delicious recipes and lots of useful information. There’s an invaluable glossary; a list of mail-order sources for the few ingredients that may not be available in your local supermarket; health information; fascinating historical facts; and some amusing anecdotes.

There are 140 mouth-watering recipes, some from my own collection and others from the talented celebrity chefs who appeared in the “Savor the Southwest” television series. The variety is amazing – you’ll find everything from a basic salsa fresca to chocolate tacos. As a cooking teacher, I know what cooks want in a recipe: clear, concise instructions; easy-to-find ingredients; dishes that are not too time-consuming. Most of the recipes in the book have do-ahead tips, step-saving techniques from the chefs, and serving suggestions.

So whether you’re new to the cuisine of the Southwest or a seasoned veteran, I think you’ll find this delightful cookbook a wonderful new kitchen companion. And above all, remember – cooking should be fun! So take time to savor the Southwest – with food, family and friends.

Sincerely,

Barbara Fenzl
