    So Cynthia, apart from the entertainment value, what is so great about the book? What are some of the recipes that make it so heart-healthy?

    I will indeed have a look at Expo Comida Latina in a couple of weeks. But still, instead of just trying to get us to buy it, tell us something useful.

    Hi Suzanne,
    My friend Maria forwarded a copy of your question.
    Hola, I am Chef LaLa, the author of Latin Lover Lite. The recipes in the book feature preparing delicious, flavorful, easy to prepare, healthy and authentic Latin recipes.
    Even the title is reflective of what the book represents, as latinos we are very passionate about food...flavor is key. These are not watered down versions of recipes passed down through generations, recipes like Carne Asada, Caldo de Pollo and Paella - that were always healthy and a well balanced meal.
    The photography is amazing. I was fortunate enough to work with talented photographer Steven Anderson - and yes, every recipe has a full page color photo so that you know how finished recipe looks and it serves as a plating idea.
    I hope this provides a little more insight into my book and hope the recipes inspire you to discover the Latin Lover in you.

    PS to Cynthia - the reason you cannot find it anywhere other than my website is because the official release date is in November. However, www.alibiris.com is currently taking orders.
    Provecho!
