Food is at the center of Latinx culture and history. It’s part of our childhood, our adult lives, and what we pass down to the next generations. It’s tradition, family, and love, wrapped up in nourishment.
Our abuelitas, tias, and mamas are often there to show us how to cook, should we want to learn, but they often teach us without measured amounts. Sometimes, we need a more precise, easy-to-follow recipe, and we would also love healthier versions of these old-school classics.
This is why I wanted to write a roundup of 12 great Latinx cookbooks that you should certainly check out. Some are modern interpretations of Latinx meals, while others feature classic recipes that have been passed down for decades.
