"From its powerful and important dedication, to its enticing introduction, alluring photographs and recipes, the thrilling new cookbook Oaxaca accomplishes that rare feat of capturing a place so vividly it not only make you want to go there, it brings you there by simply picking up this wonderful tribute to a land and its people. Let's lift a glass of mezcal to Bricia Lopez and the family behind LA's Guelaguetza."--Nancy Silverton "chef and co-owner of Mozza Restaurant Group"
