- "Part travelogue, part cookbook, Mercados takes us on a tour of Mexico?s most colorful destinations?its markets?led by an award-winning, preeminent guide whose passion for Mexican food attracted followers from around the globe. Just as David Sterling?s Yucat?n earned him praise for his "meticulously researched knowledge" (Saveur) and for producing "a labor of love that well documents place, people and, yes, food" (Booklist), Mercados now invites readers to learn about local ingredients, meet vendors and cooks, and taste dishes that reflect Mexico?s distinctive regional cuisine. Serving up more than one hundred recipes, Mercados presents unique versions of Oaxaca?s legendary moles and Michoacan?s carnitas, as well as little-known specialties such as the charcuterie of Chiapas, the wild anise of P?tzcuaro, and the seafood soups of Veracruz. Sumptuous color photographs transport us to the enormous forty-acre, 10,000-merchant Central de Abastos in Oaxaca as well as tiny tianguises in Tabasco. Blending immersive research and passionate appreciation, David Sterling?s final opus is at once a must-have cookbook and a literary feast for the gastronome." --
