To Native Americans of the Southwest, every food, whether plant or animal, is considered sacred. In this gloriously photographed book, Lois Ellen Frank, herself part Kiowa, presents more than 80 recipes that are rich in natural flavours and perfectly in tune with today's healthy eating habits. You'll find such dishes as Sauted Squash in Pumpkin Pure, Stuffed Tempura Chilies with Fiery Bean Sauce, Zuni Sunflower Cakes, and Prickly Pear Ice.
LOIS ELLEN FRANK is based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She has a master's degree in cultural anthropology from the University of New Mexico with a focus on Native American foods and plants. Currently, she is a featured cooking instructor at the Santa Fe School of Cooking.
