The Gourmet Mexican Kitchen by Shannon Baird
Thursday, March 12th, 12:00 noon at Longfellow Books 


Cook up bold Mexican flavors with these incredible gourmet recipes from one of America's hottest chefs. With The Gourmet Mexican Kitchen you'll make authentic Mexican fare hard to find anywhere but Mexico--think Enchiladas Mineras from Guanajuato, Sopa de Calabazza from Oaxaca, Arroz a la Tumbada from Veracruz and Cohinita Pibil originating in the Yucatán region of Mexico. Tips and tricks pulled from Shannon's years of experience will have you trying terrific new dishes. Master one of ten salsa recipes, wow your crowd with a Classic Mexican Vanilla Flan or build a feast around Citrus Rubbed Roasted Chicken with Pueblo Style Mole. And don't forget to pair your creations with one of her incredible margaritas--there are a ton of recipes to choose from! Whether you're looking to impress guests or just cuddle up with the perfect bowl of guacamole, The Gourmet Mexican Kitchen will introduce an exciting world of food and flavor.

Mexican street food can be hard to cook. Huarache can be as well. Ceviche? SAME! But Shannon Bard has written these recipes so well, I am going to make them all! When Zapoteca opened its doors, Chef Shannon Bard effectively raised the bar in regards to rustic Mexican fare. This book is a must-have for anyone wanting to master Mexican recipes that are earthy, vibrant and, above all, delicious!

Shannon Bard is the executive chef and co-owner of Zapoteca in Portland, Maine and Mixteca in Durham, New Hampshire. Shannon has cooked at the James Beard House and has appeared in "Beat Bobby Flay" and "The Kitchen Inferno." She lives in Kennebunk, Maine. Stop by on your lunch break for some delicious food, listen to Shannon discuss how she became a critically acclaimed chef, ask your cooking questions and get your books signed!
