Cookbook Review – Taking a Culinary Tour of the Yucatán

Last month, I was invited to attend a media tasting at Chichén Itzá Restaurant located at 3655 S. Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90007. The chef & owner of the restaurant is Gilberto Cetina, who also happens to be a co-author for the book Sabores Yucatecos: A Culinary Tour of the Yucatán, the first cookbook in English on Yucatecan cuisine by a chef from the Yucatán.

Since the cookbook was so successful in English, the authors felt it should be translated to Spanish for all consumers to enjoy!

Due to a family emergency, I was unable to attend the media tasting in DTLA. However, I wanted to share with you a few details about the event & book!

Unfortunately my high school Spanish classes didn’t provide me with enough knowledge to be able to read the Spanish version of the book. So I was provided with an English version to review! 🙂

I can’t wait to try out this Huevos Con Chaya recipe for breakfast soon!

There’s also a few beef dishes that I would love to try!

If you like the pictures in this blog post, you should check out the cookbook (available at online book retailers).

Disclosure: I was provided a complimentary copy of the cookbook & invited to a media event which helped facilitate this review. All images are mine unless otherwise noted. Though a post was not required, I wanted to share my experience. All opinions are my own.
