An Insight into the World of Authentic Latin American Cuisine With amazing photographs, fun facts from every country, a picture for every dish, easy to find ingredients and easy to follow instructions, the flavors and customs of Latins are within your reach with this wonderful cookbook. This is much more than just a cookbook; its a cultural resource for the whole family! Inside you'll find ALL the countries in Latin America with two or three of their most popular recipes. Shirley has thought of everything...she teaches you to pronounce the name of the dish, she tells you about the country and the dish, and she gives you variations for each dish. Furthermore, she made sure that all ingredients are easily found across the U.S.
This is an excellent resource to learn more about other cultures-hands on, and to use alone or with a co-op. It also makes a beautiful gift!
Shirley Solis, born in Ecuador, has recently been named the International Mom at Home because of her passion to introduce other cultures to families in the United States.
"I just got my copy of Not Just Tacos. I have already learned new things about the foods and people of Latin America. Suddenly I have an interest in traveling to South America and experiencing the culture first hand! The photographs and clean layout design makes you want to dig in and get started cooking. I predict this will become a popular resource in many kitchens and homeschool libraries across the United States for years to come." --Cindy Wiggers, Geography Matters
"Shirley Solis's warm, Ecuadorian personality comes through the writing and even the recipes, making the reader feel that she (or he) can execute these possibly unfamiliar dishes with ease. Your children will love helping make these dishes and learning about other countries through the food and culture." --Marilyn Rockett, Editor Homeschooling Today/Author
