Short Desription

Acclaimed author/actress Denise Chávez explores the history, lore, and preparation of tacos—and other art forms—in a warm and exuberant memoir, with recipes.

"Tacos are sacred to me," writes Chávez, who''s set many a fictional scene in a Southwestern restaurant or around a dinner table. And here are her special recipes, including her mother''s Tacos a la Delfina ("I swear these tacos are really good cold!") and Granma Lupe''s Pasta (not macaroni but a savory mincemeat-like taco filling). Here, too, are tips on shopping, cooking, and serving: "Offer up the meal with gratitude and remember: Tacos are one of life''s greatest things!"

"We live in chile country," she adds. "We are blessed to be here. Food is more than food; it''s a culture. And tacos are more than tacos."

Chile country is the setting for Chávez''s magical, tragicomic fiction. And in A Taco Testimony she also tells wonderful stories that connect literature with culture and food with life along the Mexican-American border.

"Time and love are the essence of all Mexican cooking," Chávez says—including her spicy, juicy writing, and this feast of a book.
