You will almost always find one, or two, or even three cookbooks on my Christmas list. They are my weakness. I have a whole shelf full of them, and I am not ashamed of it at all. I love cookbooks, and I know I’ve struck upon a good one when I keep returning to it as a reference or source of inspiration.
One of the books that I received this year was Decolonize Your Diet by Luz Calvo and Catriona Rueda Esquibel. I was originally intrigued by their website/blog because they have a variety of interesting Mexican recipes such as tepache, a fermented pineapple drink and banana vinegar. When I noticed they had a book, I was super excited. Unfortunately, my local library did not have a copy, so I put it on my Christmas wish list.
