About the Author

About the Author

Mely Martinez started her blog, Mexico in My Kitchen, in 2009 for her teenage son, hoping that someday he will use it to recreate the Mexican food his "mama" made for the family. She was born and raised in the city of Tampico, Tamaulipas, and started helping in the kitchen at a very young age, since she was the oldest daughter of eight children. She spent summers at her grandmother's farm in the state of Veracruz, where part of the daily activities included helping grind the corn to make masa. At the age of twenty, Mely moved to southern Mexico, where she worked as a teacher. This job gave her the opportunity to travel to all the states in the Yucatan Peninsula and enjoy its excellent and unique cuisine. After some years there, she lived in other states in Mexico, as well as traveling to most of them. By then, she had moved twenty-nine times! Mely enjoys cooking basic meals that are well known to most people in Mexico. Her recipes are created from her own knowledge and utilise easy-to-find ingredients. She lives in Dallas, Texas.

This book will touch hearts with every one of its recipes, filled with stories, traditions, and a burst of Mexican flavor." - Omar Sandoval, chef, TV personality, author, and founder of the Sacchi Academy of Culinary Arts---
"Mely's book is filled with memories that capture the essence of Mexican home cooking. Its recipes are the ones that I was brought up with, and are a fundamental part of our culture." - Adrian Herrera, chef, judge of MasterChef Mexico, owner of Fonda San Francisco and Paso Del Norte---
"Mely's way of understanding Mexican home cooking manages to transmit the culinary heritage of our Mexico, and exalts it with both simplicity and sophistication. There is no doubt that with her recipes, we can taste the Mexican identity." - Lula Martin del Campo, chef, author, and owner of Cascabel restaurant---
"This book takes me back to my own mother's cooking, touching my corazon Mexicano. From the northern region's flour tortilla to the south's complex and elegant mole, this book offers it all, beautifully laid out and with easy-to-follow recipes. A real standout in the world of Mexican cookbooks." - Silvana Salcido Esparza, James Beard Award nominated chef and owner of Barrio Cafe---
