    Book Description
    Latin Ladles is the second cookbook by Douglas Rodriguez, the U.S. chef who created the fusion style of food known as Nuevo Latino. This book offers soups and stews, which are at the heart of Latin home-style cooking, from Chile's Porotos con Riendas (Cranberry Bean and Pasta Soup) to Caldillo desede Panama, a broth with seafood, tomatoes, and oregano. Some dishes were collected from local cooks, others were inspired by Rodriguez's Cuban roots.

    Standards for these big-flavored, hearty dishes and some of their ingredients are unfamiliar to most cooks, so it helps that the recipes are simple and clearly written. There is also some guidance for buying and handling yucca, malanga, posole, and more. Maricel Presilla's introduction is a literate essay on food in Latin America. Whimsical photos add mouth-watering color to the pages of this book, helping to inspire you to cook dishes from a cuisine still unfamiliar to many. --Dana Jacobi

    Doug Rodriguez, chef/owner of Manhattan's Patria restaurant, presents 80 authentic soups and other one-pot meals from Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. Included are chilled and hot soups, hearty stews, and other seafood, meat, vegetable, and fruit-based soups that are the comfort foods of these countries.
