This lovely book, in which a girl and her grandmother go on a quest for the ingredients they need to make their favorite meal, is illustrated with bold and vibrant watercolors that evoke the bustling atmosphere of the village markets of Central and South America. A recipe for sancocho (a tropical stew made with chicken, pork, and/or goat meat along with many different root vegetables) is included. Also in English.
