El Norte: The Cuisine of Northern Mexico

James W. Peyton

The cooking of northern Mexico got its spark from the ranching culture, in which food was prepared with indigenous ingredients and cooked over a wood fire. El Norte presents delicious and easy to prepare recipes and dishes from the northern region of Mexico.


Jim Peyton has written four well-regarded books on Mexican cooking, history, and culture that cover every aspect of Mexican cooking. He also authored the chapters on Mexican food and drink for the Lonely Planet guidebooks to Mexico, Baja California, and Mexico’s Pacific Coast. For two years in a row, Jim’s recipes were featured in Houghton Mifflin’s The Best American Recipes.


“If you want one beautiful book about Mexican food and how to prepare it authentically, get El Norte.”
