Sobremesa Mexican cookbook

Who is the author: Mexican-born and London-based chef Susana Villasuso runs an Instagram page (@holasus) and a blog (Life Limon y Sal), where she showcases simple, authentic Mexican food that is delicious and easy to make.

What’s it about: Susana grew up learning to cook from both her mother and grandmother. In this debut cookbook, she blends modern and authentic Mexican recipes, using easily available supermarket ingredients.

Sobremesa is made up of 75 quick, easy and delicious meals. Split across essentials, weeknight meals, snacks, special occasions, drinks, and weekend recipes, it will deliver a real taste of Mexico with a modern twist. A celebration of one of the world’s most popular cuisines, the book ranges from easy, quick hacks for injecting flavours into food, to dishes designed for feeding the whole family, and for all kinds of entertaining – after all, ‘sobremesa’ means ‘relaxing at the table after a heavy meal’.

Sobremesa is a celebration of Mexican food, and a book to help you spice up your cooking with its fresh and beautiful recipes.

Recipes we love: Salmon Ceviche, Crispy Sweet Potato Taquitos, Potatoes with ‘Nduja, and Tuna Croquettes.

Perfect for: Family cooks, worldly foodies, and anyone looking to master the art of making Mexican food.
