Review by Booklist Review

Social media chef Martinez's first cookbook reflects her TikTok/Instagram brand of cooking that focuses on Mexican comfort food classics. She introduces readers to her much-beloved family through the book's narrative elements as she shares the culinary traditions she was taught as a girl in Mexico. Chapters cover all the basics, from tacos to desserts and drinks, and include recipes for favorites like mole, pozole, and refried beans. Fans won't be surprised by many recipes that are also available on the author's social media accounts, but they will value having access to Martinez's essential dishes all in one place and the delicious food photography that elevates the collection. Martinez sprinkles street-food recipes throughout the book in a nod to her homeland. In a crowded market for Mexican cookbooks, Martinez's recipes and narrative stand out for their genuine love of her culinary heritage and family. Classic Mexican comfort food combining respect for generations past with modern practicality.
