Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Earthy, magical, and utterly charming, this tale of family life in turn-of-the-century Mexico became a best-selling phenomenon with its winning blend of poignant romance and bittersweet wit. The classic love story takes place on the De la Garza ranch, as the tyrannical owner, Mama Elena, chops onions at the kitchen table in her final days of pregnancy. While still in her mother's womb, her daughter to be weeps so violently she causes an early labor, and little Tita slips out amid the spices and fixings for noodle soup. This early encounter with food soon becomes a way of life, and Tita grows up to be a master chef. She shares special points of her favorite preparations with listeners throughout the story.

Review:
"This magical, mythical, moving story of love, sacrifice and simmering sensuality is something I shall savour for a long time" (Maureen Lipman)

"It's a joy... it has an energetic charm that's quite impossible to resist" ( Literary Review)

"If originality, a compelling tale and an adventure in the kitchen are what you crave, Like Water For Chocolate serves up the full helping" (Carla Matthews San Francisco Chronicle)

"A wondrous, romantic tale, fuelled by mystery and superstitition as well as by the recipes that introduce each chapter" ( Los Angeles Times)

"Exuberant... for those who like their wines full-bodied and their meals rich and zesty... earthly secrets of strength, suffering, passion and cooking in a humorous and well-drawn portrait of a woman who loves as well as she cooks" ( Washington Post)
