Siéntate a comer, esta muy bueno!” (“Sit down and eat, it’s very good!”)
This was how Jesusita Mendias-Soza always welcomed guests to her table. The same words served as inspiration for her daughter Evangelina and granddaughters Yvette and Veronica, who wanted to honor her memory and preserve their family’s recipes and stories for future generations.
They started the Muy Bueno Cookbook blog in 2010 with this idea in mind, and quickly attracted thousands of fans—including Paula Deen, The Pioneer Woman, Saveur, and Gourmet—who fell in love with Muy Bueno’s flavorful Mexican recipes, heartwarming family stories, and beautiful photography.
With the companion cookbook Muy Bueno: Three Generations of Authentic Mexican Flavor they open their hearts and kitchens to an even wider audience. It offers over 100 recipes: traditional old-world northern Mexican recipes from Jesusita’s kitchen; comforting south of the border home-style dishes from Evangelina; and innovative Latin fusion recipes from Yvette and Veronica.
