Editorial Reviews

“Amalia Moreno-Damgaard’s cookbook cajoles and lures you into becoming a participant in her Guatemalan kitchen—and to leave thoroughly satisfied. Her recipes make even the most complicated traditional dishes, such as Mole de Plátano and a spicy chicken and pork vegetable stew, Pepián Negro, quite easy to prepare, just as though she is leaning over your shoulder as you prepare the foods she obviously cares for passionately.”

Marilyn Tausend, author of Cocina de la Familia, Mexico the Beautiful, Savoring Mexico: Recipes and Reflections on Mexican Cooking, and La Cocina Mexicana: Many Cultures, One Cuisine

“Amalia is a true ambassador for Latin American cuisine. Each dish she prepares brings a new and exciting adventure of flavors to the table. Her food is genuine and amazingly delicious!”

Jim Kleinsasser, former NFL football player for the Minnesota Vikings

“Amalia’s recipes are fresh, healthy, and enticing with flavors of the Latin culinary cultures. Her robust and bold dishes make guests feel like they are having a family feast right in her grandmother’s kitchen, cooked the way her grandmother taught her, with love, attention, and dedication.”

Tom McKinney, executive director, Make-A-Wish–Minnesota

“Amalia is a rising star in the international culinary world and, with this new guide to Guatemalan cooking, has proven she can write as well as she cooks. These are savory, authentic dishes, but also absolutely cookable! Amalia’s Guatemalan Kitchen is the place where I’ll hang when I’m hungry for good food. Buen provecho, indeed! Happy cooking!”

Bill Huebsch, chair of the board, Common Hope
