Praise for Sobremesa

I love the colourfulness of Mexico and its food. I must have been Mexican in my previous life, because I’m a total sucker for anything that comes in the shape of a soft tortilla, fiery with chilli and lime squirted. Susana’s recipe book "Sobremesa" is like a fantasy come true. I would cook and eat every single dish in it.
