    I have never been to Mexico and unfortunately my knowledge of Mexican cuisine is non-existent. But I see a trip in my future to the Baja peninsula, specifically Cabo San Lucas in the near future. I would welcome recommendations of cookbooks and/or web sites.

    I think Diana Kennedy and Rick Bayless are considered the Mexican cuisine gurus.

    I love Pati Jinich and her show on PBS Create channel. She explores different areas in Mexico and focuses on the local foods.

    I suggest you watch a few of these videos.

    All three of the authors/videos are excellent. I’ve made Pati’s wet shrimp tacos (very good) and checked this book out from the library (Baja California Cookbook – Exploring Mexico) by authors from the area. Was quite happy testing out new methods…even for baking beans.

    Have a safe and wonderful trip.

    I like watching Pati Jinich on PBS, and Rick Bayless still is my go-to for reasonably good recipes. His tamales and Posole Rojo still come out on Christmas Eve.

    I don’t think you can go wrong with either of them.
