One of the things I’ve quietly been toiling away on over the past few years is a cookbook proposal.
Late last year I found an agent. And just recently, I signed a contract. Kyle Books, a small publisher based in London, will publish my book — tentatively titled Eat Mexico — in the Spring of 2015. It’ll be a mix of recipes and stories about Mexico City’s street food, markets and fondas, told from my perspective as a third-generation Mexican-American woman. There will also be gorgeous photographs of the city and its food, and the people who fuel the informal and more casual food economy.
Going to cooking school, launching Eat Mexico — it all seems to have been leading to this.
I’m thrilled, and I really hope you’ll follow me in this process. More to come!
