Booklist Review

Foods from directly south of the Rio Grande, as well as the broader world of Latin American and the Caribbean, have become dominant forces in North America. Latin American restaurants and groceries have sprung up everywhere with peoples' migration northward, but shoppers unfamiliar with the varieties of produce, dairy products, and meats displayed on the shelves now have a superior guide to help them negotiate these stores' aisles. With Latin & Caribbean Grocery Stores Demystified, Linda Bladholm opens up new worlds of flavor to North American shoppers. Mark Knoblauch.
