(Mexican) Anon. La Cocinera Poblana y El Libro De Las Familias. Novisimo Manual Práctico De Cocina Española, Francesa, Inglesa Y Mexicana.

Original cloth-backed pictorial boards. Tenth Edition. Mexico City: Herrero Hermanos Sucesores, 1926.

La Cocinera Poblana takes a middle path between the nationalism of El Cocinero Mexicano and the Eurocentric Diccionario de Cocina, featuring a range of cuisine including a justly famous array of tamales (including the Diana Kennedy favorite flor de calabaza). Noteworthy sections on barbacoa (with an earth oven) and an array of recipes for the famous Puebla dish mole de guajolote. La Cocinera Poblana's sensible mix of national and European cuisine was widely popular and the cookbook, originally published in 1877, was reprinted until at least 1929. Rubbing to extremities, simple tears to cloth along hinges; warping to first several pages, else very good and bright. Scarce.
