A dazzling new international cookbook with over 130 recipes from the bestselling author of the award-winning book, Amalia’s Guatemalan Kitchen.

“This book exudes tradition and authenticity with updated twists.”

—Chef Gale Gand, author, teacher, TV personality

In the highly anticipated sequel to her first Central American cookbook, Amalia Moreno-Damgaard crosses borders to explore modern versions of ancient Latin American recipes.

Mesoamerica, or Central America, has a rich history dating back to the Olmec, Mayan, and Aztec empires, and the first peoples of Central America with culinary traditions still alive today.

After years of traveling and culinary fellowship with native cooks proudly protecting their traditions, Amalia has created over 130 variations of centuries-old dishes.

Inside the book, find:

• many naturally vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free recipes

• vivid and color photographs for each dish

• comfort food with a gourmet touch from Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama

• tips and tricks to make recipes practical, accessible and easy to prepare

With her gourmet signature on ancient culinary traditions, Amalia’s recipes will take home cooks and skilled chefs on a journey through Mesoamerica without ever leaving the kitchen.

—Beatrice Ojakangas, author of the James Beard Cookbook Hall of Fame

—Michel Nischan, author of Sustainably Delicious and four-time James Beard Award-winning chef
