Book Review: Salsas And Moles

Salsas and Moles by Deborah Schneider is exactly what you would expect from a book with this title. The pages are filled with great recipes with great ingredients…nothing more nothing less. And you wouldn’t want it any other way.

If you’re a professional cook looking for new ideas, you will find it here. If you’re just getting started making salsas and moles this is where you will find inspiration. From the simple to the complex, its all in these pages and it all looks delicious (can’t wait to start trying these out myself).

I recently reviewed Tacos: Recipes and Provocations by Alex Stupak and this book is the perfect supplement to that one. You simply cannot have enough authentic Mexican food on your table.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.



Book Review: Art Students League Of New York On Painting

James L. Mcelhinney and the Instructors of The Art Students League of New York present this incredible window (294 pages) into their prolific artistic community with On Painting.

For those unfamiliar with The Art Students League of New York, they were founded in 1875 and have an extremely rich history of working with many art legends including Pollock and O’Keefe. Today thousands of students study there each month.

While this book is filled with illustrations, it is much broader than just a large collection of beautiful and unique paintings. It includes lessons, advice, philosophies and interviews with instructors.

Artists and appreciators of art will want a copy of this book in their collection.
