Decolonize Your Diet

Luz Calvo and Catriona Rueda Esquibel


Cookbooks

Great Exploration into Indigenous Mexican Cuisine!

Victoria's picture

The author Michael Pollan advises in Food Rules, "Don't eat anything your grandmother wouldn't recognize;" meaning the food industry has radically changed; especially the Western diet. These words rang particularly true when Decolonize Your Diet co-author Luz Calvo was diagnosed with breast cancer (despite being a vegetarian for 15 years.) She began to research and found that immigrant born Latinas had significantly lower rates of breast cancer than US born Latinas; prompting her to revisit the indigenous cuisine of Mexico. What follows in this cookbook are some amazing recipes cooked with high amounts of fiber, fruits, vegetables and revolutionary love. Fans of Sean Sherman and Beth Dooley's The Sioux Chef's Indigenous Kitchen and Michael W. Twitty's The Cooking Gene will deeply appreciate this cookbook. Also, try the Caldo De Quinoa; it's a great soup and Winter is Coming! -Victoria

One thing I dream about in my imagined post-quarantine life is visiting Isa Chandra Moskowitz's restaurant Modern Love in Omaha, Nebraska. I am a big fan of her cookbooks. I've never met a recipe of hers that I didn't like. We have more of her cookbooks in print at ICPL, but I'll take this e-book while I wait to be able to hold her books with my own, garlic-scented fingers. -Melody

In her true fashion, Clark makes French cooking accessible. No intimidating cooking techniques or long lists of ingredients here.

Just in time for spring, try "Dandelion Salad with Sweet Garlic Confit, Pancetta, and Blue Cheese" or "Asparagus, Goat Cheese, and Tarragon Tart." Just want to look at beautiful pictures of delicious food and French food markets? This cookbook has those in abundance. -Anne M
