Description: Oaxaca state is one of the most fascinating regions of Mexico. Located among the mountains of the southwest, it is a land of dramatic beauty, delicious food, and rich culture. It is the most biologically and culturally diverse region in the country -- home to the broadest range of indigenous people, including the Zapotec and Mixtec Indians. Its history has had a profound effect of the food of the region, which is as diverse as its inhabitants. The strong regional identity of Oaxaca has struck a chord with savvy travelers and diners. It is an increasingly popular tourist destination whose unique beauty has recently been featured in Saveur magazine, among other influential publications.

Food is inextricably tied to daily religious rituals and celebrations. The Food and Life of Oaxaca captures this interrelationship by offering traditional recipes from the major celebrations, the most colorful of which is the Day of the Dead. In addition to special festival fare, there are enticing recipes for everyday that include such favorites as Potato-Cheese Fritters, Pickled Vegetables -- a distinctive regional treat -- Chicken in Almond Sauce, and Bunuelos. And there are recipes for sublime moles. These sauce-based dishes are typical of Oaxaca, which is fondly called "land of the seven moles". Beautiful black and white photographs of the food and people of Oaxaca capture the vibrant spirit and venerable traditions of this alluring region of Mexico.
