									"The Latin Road Home: Savoring the Foods of Ecuador, Spain, Cuba, Mexico
and Peru" by Jose Garces Comes to Digital

Beautiful, best-selling cookbook receives innovative ebook transformation and distribution to all
major retailers.

New York, NY, December 17, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Chef and restaurateur Jose Garces revived Latin
cuisine in Philadelphia and the United States with over a dozen restaurants. He is the 2009 winner of the
James Beard Foundation's “Best Chef Mid-Atlantic” award, and is one of only a few chefs in the country
to hold the coveted title of Iron Chef. Garces has also written two best-selling cookbooks, including
2012's The Latin Road Home, a gorgeously photographed and designed cookbook that intertwined
Garces' life journey from Chicago to Philadelphia and his Ecuadorian heritage, as well as his global jaunts
exploring new foods, with delectable recipes. Now Garces's publisher, Lake Isle Press, has commissioned
a special digital version of the book by Vook that is available today on Amazon, Barnes and Noble,
iBooks, and other channels.

The digital version of "Latin Road Home" translates the layout and design of the complex cookbook into
a beautiful and easy-to-read version, accessible on a wide variety of digital reading tablets and devices, all
without sacrificing readability and the quality of the original design. With this presentation, users can
now take "The Latin Road Home" with them everywhere they can bring their e-reading devices.

“I'm always looking for different ways to share my food with people, and making this deeply personal
cookbook and travelogue into an ebook is an exciting new way for me to bring my recipes and stories to
fans and first-time readers alike,” said Jose Garces.

“We're thrilled to make this wonderful book, featuring many of Jose's exciting, signature recipes,
available in digital format,” adds Hiroko Kiiffner, publisher of Lake Isle Press.

"The Latin Road Home" is available for $9.99 on Amazon, iBooks, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Google,
Sony, and Samsung. A print edition is already available.
