Mexican Flavors

Contemporary Recipes from Camp San Miguel

For Napa Valley, California, residents, Teri Sandison and her husband, Hugh Carpenter, the Mexican city of San Miguel de Allende is much more than a travel destination, inspiring a series of cooking schools and now a cookbook, "Mexican Flavors: Contemporary Recipes from Camp San Miguel".

"Hugh and I both fell in love with San Miguel - its warm and friendly people, the sense of history, the grand architecture, and the vibrant art scene," said Sandison, whose pictures punctuate the recipes with local color. "With this new book, we want to share our knowledge of the rich history of the region, along with the charms of the contemporary life."
"Imagine two fabulous artists in one book! Hugh, with his creativity exiting south of the border, his cookery on a new trail, and Teri, with her fabulous, evocative photography," said Margrit Mondavi. "[The book is] an absolute winner! An absolute must to add to our collection of treasures."
