Santa Fe Cooking at Its Best-No Other Book Can Compare. So the first 56 pages introduce us to his reasons for writing this book, background facts on the foods, and valuable cooking tips. The Feast of Santa Fe: Cooking of the American Southwest by Huntley Dent. The remaining 341 pages demonstrate WHY I’ve kept this rather worn and splattered book.

Among a select list of cookbooks which can be read cover-to-cover in the manner of a particularly juicy novel, Feast of Santa Fe is a delicious, tempting and comprehensive introduction to the food and food culture of the Santa Fe region. It's also that rare thing: a literate cookbook, unafraid to reference Willa Cather alongside Elizabeth David.

Most important, all the recipes I have tried in this book have been a success. The author is straightforward when advising extra effort when a shortcut will not do, such as grinding your own chili powder. Dent is equally candid when convenience is more practical, such as purchasing flour tortillas instead of making them. I appreciate the author telling how to best prepare the fillings for burritos and enchiladas.

What is particularly valuable about these detailed, leisurely recipes-and what places the book way above Anne Greer's likable Cuisine of the American Southwest (1983)-is the sureness and sensitivity of historical insight that frames (but does not dictate) the presentation of every dish.

I have a large collection of Southwest cookbooks, and have been cooking this food for half a century. If I could only keep one book, this would be it. The recipes are truly reflective of the kind of food that has been handed down for generations. There are lots of illustrations to make it easier to make some of the recipes like sopapillas. This is not a Tex-Mex cookbook, nor does it reflect the latest trends in Southwestern cooking. The author does explain how these trends have influenced the food of Santa Fe. The recipes are, for the most part, not difficult to prepare, but a novice cook may find some recipes challenging. This is also a good "reading cookbook", with lots of explanations and information. This book has nice sketches, but is not filled with photographs. It is meant as a working and reading book, not a decorative item.

This is a cookbook that I have owned for over 20 years...I had to replace mine as it wore out...that should be a testament to the quality of the content! If you want simple and easy to follow recipes that will get a great Mexican Meal on your table - buy this!

For Example: A quick meal meat tacos with refried beans and Spanish rice

Machaca: beef roast wrapped in foil with spices and chiles - baked for 2.5 hours.
Refried beans in the crock pot 8 hours
Taco shells with all the fixings
Spanish style rice...

This is a great cookbook that deserves a place on the shelf of any person interested in Mexican style cooking!

This is one great cookbook, Southwest style food is my favorite to eat and the most rewarding to cook in my opinion. I live on The North East Coast and frequently travel to the great west. The food is the most enjoyable and I want that authentic taste, that unique Southwestern flavor and this book does not disappoint. Depending on locations like myself not all ingredient's are readily available to you, so have a plan B for maybe a few things. My favorite dish is the Roast Turkey with Moble Poblano on page 92 and is no easy feat, it is what to make on a rainy Sunday.

This is the second time I've bought this book, having literally worn out my first copy. The very best guide to New Mexican cooking ever written, but it goes beyond that to inspire deep appreciation for the cultures whose intersection and ability to make magically delicious cuisine in the Sonora desert gave us these gifts.
  • SARAND
This excellent book is an old friend which I used to borrow from my town library so often I think I wore it out. I've learned a lot and cooked a lot from it with great satisfaction. It is a wonderful introduction and comprehensive guide to a fascinating and rich cuilinary tradition with deep roots in New Mexico regional roots and peoples. Buy it. Learn from it. Cook from it. Repeat with gusto!
  • Charyoll
I have tried several recipes and they have been great (friends asked for the recipes). I like the history and explanations for why certain dishes were created and why they are popular. The collection for Santa Fe is the most extensive I have found and they seem authentic. I bought another copy for a gift. I can't believe this is out of print?
  • Phalaken
The perfect companion for the cook who wants authentic, New Mexican recipes and tips. Delightful recipes that are relatively easy to make, even for a novice cook because the instructions are thorough.
Classic stuff, a must have for the Southwestern cook.
