Okay, this book looks interesting. I first saw it at Borders, and when I found out our local library didn’t carry it, I asked them to purchase it. And, as is the case more often than not, they did! I just checked it out and decided to cook all of tonight’s meal from the book. Everything was really good, although there were a couple of issues. The shrimp were easy and trouble-free. I cooked up an entire pound of shrimp, because it’s great to have on hand in the refrigerator. The arepas seemed a little loose, and it was tricky getting them onto and off of the grill. The batter needed to be more of a dough than a batter, but once we got the hang of it, they turned out great.
There’s an error in the salad recipe (which isn’t really much of a recipe). It calls for firm avocados for grilling (and the photo shows grill marks on the avocado), but the instructions don’t say anything about grilling the avocados. Luckily I’m a fan of grilled avocado so I had no problems winging it. I know a lot of people aren’t fans of grilled salads, but I kind of like it.
