Barcelona-inspired smoked trout and endive canapés. Twice-fried plantain cups and chorizo-stuffed mushrooms. Sound hard? If they sound like items on a menu and not dishes you whip up at home, you could use a few pointers in the kitchen. Thankfully, Food Network and PBS chef Daisy Martinez can help even the most cooking-challenged master traditional Latin American food.
In addition to hosting Daisy Cooks! and Viva Daisy!, Martinez is also a regular columnist for Every Day With Rachael Ray and Selecciones. Her new cookbook, Daisy: Morning, Noon, and Night, provides quick and easy ways to learn recipes from her familys own Puerto Rican traditions as well as from her travels to Spanish-speaking countries.
So dust off your apron, sharpen your knives, and snag a copy of Daisys vibrant cookbook at Books & Books this Wednesday.
