From the Inside Flap

In the tradition of the best-selling Monet''s Table, Frida''s Fiestas is a personal account in words and pictures of many important and happy events in the life of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, and a scrapbook, assembled by her stepdaughter, of recipes for more than 100 dishes that Frida served to family and friends with her characteristic enthusiasm for all the pleasures of life.Full-color photographs.

From the Back Cover

Lupe Rivera and Marie-Pierre Colle bring Frida and the Blue House in Coyoacan vividly to life. We learn of parakeets chattering in their cages, of the monkey Fulang Chang, of people congregating in the famous tiled kitchen. But most of all, we learn about Frida and how she welcomed people into her home. Frida was an enthusiast, and every occasion was cause for rejoicing. She celebrated birthdays and saints days and baptisms and all the popular holidays. The authors have divided the book into a cycle of twelve fiestas, among them the Posadas (at Christmas), the Day of the Dead, the Mexican national holidays, and a gala celebration called "The Meal of the Broad Tablecloths". Included with the reminiscences are more than 100 recipes for the traditional Mexican foods that Diego loved to eat and Frida loved to prepare.

This book isn''t just a cookbook. Its a MUST HAVE for fans of Frida and Diego. It has stories and pictures and really captures their time period. From a culinary standpoint, it contains Mexican recipes from the 1930''s-1950''s which is a treasury trove unto itself. As you read it (yes, read it, like a novel) you''ll be transported back in time. For about 20 yrs I''ve been looking for an authentic Mole recipe from scratch (knowing full well that there are as many mole recipes as there are grandmas in Mexico) and found many recipes that failed to capture the flavor I wanted. Until now. Oh! Her Mole Poblano is worth the price of the book!!! But you better bust out the calculator and reduce the recipe into at least 1/8 because it makes 10 very very generous portions (honestly, it could easily serve 20). It is exquisite freshly made but lost a lot of flavor after freezing. I really LOVE this book and if you like Frida and authentic, old school Mexican cusine you will LOVE this book also. Buen Provecho!

UPDATE: I''ve cooked the papas en salsa verde and tamales OMG!! This is one of my favorite books!

I don''t like giving reviews before trying the recipes BUT just by reading the recipes I can tell you I LOVE this book! Mouthwatering definitely a keeper i bought a contemporary Mexican cookbook and Fridas book is better by far. My only critique is the recipe name translations, I whish they would''ve opted for leaving the Spanish name instead of using Eng titles, but I guess when it was written in 1993 people weren''t as familiar with the terms as we now are.

Every month has a menu with the recipes and every recipe serves at least 8! If you are a Frida Khalo fan, get this cookbook! It’s a must! You won’t regret it.

So much heart!
Reviewed in the United States on June 15, 2019
I absolutely love this book. So much heart! Wonderful anecdotes and insights in the daily doings of Frida’s life through food. I gained a whole new understanding and appreciation of her. And the recipes are do-able and delicious.

This book is much more than just a collection of authentic Mexican recipes that Frida favored. The narrative, co-written by Frida''s stepdaughter, also provides some engaging insight to who Frida Kahlo was and what moved her. It''s not a biography but rather provides a pleasant portrayal of what it was like to be in Frida''s orb, the time period, and the locations. I also appreciated the photos of Frida''s paintings, residences where Frida lived with Diego, and the food. Oh, yes; the recipes... ahhh, can''t wait to try them.

I have a copy of this book, have read it twice. I really love the work of Fria Kahlo, so this book was a diversified version of her life and personality. A really good cookbook of traditional Mexican specialties, with antecdotes thrown in about
Frida. Written partly by Diego Rivera''s daughter, she had first-hand experience with Frida since she lived with them for a time. I bought this book a second time as a Christmas gift for my daughter-in-law. I have seen her several times reading the book, so I would venture to say it has another fan in the family. Not a cheap purchase, but a great book, buy it if you like Frida.
Thanks for quick arrival and perfect conditon.

I''m Mexican and I love cooking and use cooking books to be able to replicate some dishes that are not part of my family. Mexicans don''t share their recipes easily, so I found easier to look for recipes in books than asking around to my friends or family. Mexico is such a big country, so it''s impossible to know how to cook all the amazing dishes from all around. This book presents some of the most common dishes in Mexico, those we eat for especial ocassions, especially in the centre of the country. The recipes are good to replicate the flavours of my country, the directions are clear and the pictures are beautiful. I think that you can still play a bit with the recipes once you mastered the basic one, to add your own touch. There are easy and complicated dishes, but I would say that the book is definately written for somebody that is already confident in the kitchen, with a passion for discovering new flavours and not afraid of spending all morning in the kitchen cooking for a especial ocassion.
