So basic. I could do better myself.
18 maj 2017
I didn't really expect that someone would have the nerve to write a "recipe" for how someone should put grated cheese beteeen two tortillas, and put it in a frying pan to cook. Do I really need someone to tell me how to cook quesadillas? Nope, and I don't think the vast majority of people would, either. I just found the recipes incredibly basic, boring, and patronising. Not one recipe excites me, or made me keen to get in the kitchen and cook it straightaway. "Mexican" soup? What exactly is that? As far as I know, there isn't such a thing as a national soup in Mexico, unless you count menudo soup, which is traditionally made with beef stomach. Maybe the writer's dish could be re-named "slightly spicy tomato soup", which would be more accurate. After all, you can't just call something "Mexican" because it has chili in it. And by the way, the home-made tortillas look terribly dry and brittle in the pictures. I think the writer really could have done with learning some skills in the kitchen, and broadened her food horizons instead of rushing out something which any half-decent cook will find useless, because they can do better themselves. Incidentally, I bought Catarina König's book at the same time, and thought this was miles better. Choose that instead.
