Fiesta! is even more than its extraordinary food: it is a complete entertainment guide, offering "game plans" to help organize meals efficiently (including suggestions on what dishes can be made ahead of time), decorating tips that help create ideal settings, and plenty of other helpful hints.
First published in 1987, this revised and updated edition of Jane Butel's Fiesta! brings to life the spirit of a region where company is always welcome, where the flavors are always clear and strong, and where creativity finds no more satisfying outlet than in the kitchen. The recipes in this book include both traditional dishes and new interpretations of them. After a helpful introductory section on ingredients and basic preparations, Jane Butel presents a series of festive brunches, indoor or outdoor occasions that feature treats like Bloody Marias, fresh apricot preserves, and a ham and chile omelet rolled into a decorative pinwheel. A group of lunches and picnics includes a Texas Independence Day meal, and twelve special dinners range from a Cinco de Mayo celebration to a New Mexican buffet to an elaborate but simple formal dinner for four.
Jane Butel's Simply Southwestern includes over 200 recipes from appetizers to desserts including beverages showcasing both traditional and innovative preparation and presentation. Each recipe includes both the history of the dish, cooking tips, and the essential steps and ingredients to let the bright clean taste of true regional fare shine.
