Tamales Cookbook by Mark Miller, Stephan Pyles, and John Sedlar

The Best Tamale Mexican Cookbook. Mexican recipes.

An entire book dedicated to the tamale, this beautiful cookbook is a joy to look at, let alone cook with. It begins with a basic history of the tamale and instructions for their stuffing, wrapping and cooking. It then offers a huge variety of recipes for what you may have previously thought a one-dimensional dish. There are a dozen recipes for tamale dough alone, and the fillings range from the savory vegetarian, meat and seafood versions to sweet and fruit-filled desserts. The photos are fit for framing, depicting dishes like the "Carmelized Onion Tamales with Tomato-Basil Salad" and "Carnitas Tamales with Pineapple and Tomato-Habanero Sauce". Finish off a meal with "Sweet Pumpkin Tamales with Nutmeg Creme Anglaise".

Beautifully written, amazing recipes
December 31, 2013

The intro to the book really draws you and makes you appreciate the tradition behind tamales - so much more than good food. I enjoyed learning about the deep rooted traditions and personal stories. As far as the cookbook portion, it will never be considered a basic tamale cookbook. While the recipes are very complex - the result is amazing flavors, colors and aromas. In my opinion it's worth the time and effort to follow the lengthy ingredient list and cooking instructions.
Pros:
Great stories of the traditions Creative recipes Amazing flavors
Cons:
There are no basic instructions, every recipe is built on layers and layers of flavor There is a lot of flipping back and forth, as each recipe refers to many other recipes or techniques to complete (I think it's worth it, but for a casual cook it would be too much)

It has a lot of nice recipes, mostly very fancy which I did want but I had also hoped for some simple recipes which were not included.

This is a nice cookbook, however less traditional than I had hoped. The recipes are good and it contains useful discussion about tamale making and ingredients.
