Description: Fiery, tangy, and utterly satisfying, Latin cuisine has a reputation that Babalu! celebrates in all its textures, variations, and flavors. From Cuba to Mexico to Puerto Rico to Spain, every tradition of Latin American culture is embraced through over 90 recipes -- in both English and Spanish -- for salads, soups, appetizers, entrees, and, of course, desserts. 

Some of today's most popular Latin American master chefs, such as Douglas Rodriguez, Toribio Prado, and Julian Serrano, share their unique creations with characteristic gourmet flair. Their prized dishes -- including Duckling Nachos With Habanero Aioli, Chipotle, and Mango Pico; Plantain Coated Mahimahi; Chicken in Mole Verde; Lamb Chops With Mofongo and Cilantro Pesto; and Chocolate Tres Leches -- which are found in some of the finest restaurants in America, can now be made at home. 

In addition, over 25 Latin stars reveal their favorite family recipes and the memories associated with them. Andy Garcia provides recipes for Piernas (Cuban pork legs) and Mojo Criollo (Cuban marinade), both dishes that represent his culture, family, and friends. Julio Iglesias offers rich and aromatic dishes from his homeland, Spain, including a tortilla that he "never leaves the house without." Daphne Zuniga recalls visits to her grandmother's home in Guatemala, where she helped tie banana leaves to make tamales for their 20-person family gatherings. Jennifer Lopez shares her recipe for Flan de Leche de Abuela Julia, which reminds her of Christmas, family, and love. And Chita Rivera contributes her ingredients for a festive and refreshing margarita. 

With introductions by actor Edward James Olmos and chef Michael Cordua, and illustrated with stunning color photographs, Babalu! is an essential addition to every kitchen's cookbook library. A portion of the proceeds will go to the National Alliance of Breast Cancer Organizations (NABCO).
