A Taco Testimony: Meditations on Family, Food and Culture by Denise Chavez

Acclaimed author/actress Denise Chavez explores the history, lore, and preparation of tacos--and other art forms--in a warm and exuberant memoir, with recipes. Tacos are sacred to me, writes Chavez, whos set many a fictional scene in a Southwestern restaurant or around a dinner table. And here are her special recipes, including her mothers Tacos a la Delfina (I swear these tacos are really good cold!) and Granma Lupes Pasta (not macaroni but a savory mincemeat-like taco filling). Here, too, are tips on shopping, cooking, and serving: Offer up the meal with gratitude and remember: Tacos are one of lifes greatest things! We live in chile country, she adds. We are blessed to be here. Food is more than food; its a culture. And tacos are more than tacos. Chile country is the setting for Chavezs magical, tragicomic fiction. And in A Taco Testimony she also tells wonderful stories that connect literature with culture and food with life along the Mexican-American border. Time and love are the essence of all Mexican cooking, Chavez says--including her spicy, juicy writing, and this feast of a book.
