     Product Description-Mexican Everyday (Recipes Featured on
     Season 4 of the PBS-TV series "Mexico One Plate at a Time")
At last, a cookbook that brings Mexican food within easy reach: named to Food & Wine Magazine’s Year’s 25 Best Cookbooks
  as part of its annual Best of the Best cookbook.In his previous books, Rick Bayless transformed America's understanding of
Mexican cuisine, introducing authentic dishes and cooking methods as he walked readers through Mexican markets and street
    stalls. As much as Rick loves the bold flavors of Mexican foods, he understands that preparing many Mexican specialties
 requires more time than most of us have. Mexican Everyday is written with the time sensitivities of modern life in mind. It is a
    collection of 90 full-flavored recipes—like Green Chile Chicken Tacos, Shrimp Ceviche Salad, Chipotle Steak with Black
 Beans—that meet three criteria for "everyday" food: 1) most need less than 30 minutes' involvement; 2) they have the fresh,
   clean taste of simple, authentic preparations; and 3) they are nutritionally balanced, full-featured meals—no elaborate side
  dishes required. Companion to a thirteen-part public television series, this book provides dishes you can eat with family and
                                                    friends, day in and day out.

Superb Introduction to Simpler Mexican Dishes. Buy It!, November 23, 2005 By B. Marold "Bruce W. Marold" (Bethlehem, PA
United States)
      This review is from: Mexican Everyday (Recipes Featured on Season 4 of the PBS-TV series "Mexico One Plate at a
Time") (Hardcover) `Mexican Everyday' by quadruple threat celebrity chef Rick Bayless is a must-buy for all dedicated foodies,
lovers of Mexican food, fans of fast recipes, dieters (more on this later) and the cookbook collectors among us. Before I opened
this book, I respected Bayless for being an accomplished home-grown American chef in Chicago, a leading expert and writer on
authentic Mexican cooking, a respected TV chef educator on PBS in the tradition of St. Julia rather than on the commercial
Food Network and, lastly, the author of a truly great `cook with kids' book, `Rick and Lanie's Excellent Kitchen Adventures'.
About the only thing Rick has not accomplished is to beat Bobby Flay on `Iron Chef America', although he did loose by only one
point.Just as I did when I opened Jacques Pepin's `Fast Food My Way', I expected to find a `sell-out' book in one way or
another. My worst fear was that this was just copied from recipes in his other books. At best, I feared it was simply a cash-in...

To Cook with Everyday in a Mexican Food Mood!, November 14, 2005 By rodboomboom (Dearborn, Michigan United States)
   This review is from: Mexican Everyday (Recipes Featured on Season 4 of the PBS-TV series "Mexico One Plate at a Time")
(Hardcover) Having most of Bayless' cookbook offerings to date and used them extensively, this purchase was a non-brainer.It
lives up to the high expectations that this renowned chef has for Mexican cuisine, but here with the added nicety of for everyday,
health conscience eating. He goes through his dietary advice at the beginning which includes portion control, yoga, etc. What is
catchy as well is his leaning in this recipe collection for what can be prepared quickly and yet with robust taste and nutritional
and easy-to-find ingredients, especially via Mexican staple supplier or via internet.This Norton published volume has gorgeous
full-color photos, with absolutely great pictures of various ingredients, techniques and finished dishes. Bayless also jazzes each
recipe up with what he refers to as "riffs." This are wonderful options, e.g. Grilled Fish in Tangy Yucatecan Achiote he suggests
one can substitute pork or chicken and vegetable substitutions as well for the...

Authentic, Delicious and Speedy!, April 27, 2006 By E. Evans
This review is from: Mexican Everyday (Recipes Featured on Season 4 of the PBS-TV series "Mexico One Plate at a Time")
(Hardcover) I am a huge fan of Rick Bayless, but with two children aged 3 and under in my house, it is difficult for me to find the
time to make some of his more elaborate recipes. With "Mexican Everyday", however, Bayless has provided the solution for
cooks like me. It is indeed possible to get authentic Mexican meals on the table in under an hour.These meals are indeed fast to
prepare and very tasty. The three I have made so far (Green Chile Chicken Soft Tacos, Guajillo-Spiced Pork and Potatoes, and
Red Chile Chicken and Rice with Black Beans) have been hits. They do require some specialized ingredients but most of them
were found in my local grocery store.This cookbook is going to become one that I return to frequently and I highly recommend it.
