This unique cookbook is both a work of art and valuable reference book. It features over 100 hand drawn recipes from Marcella's Travels throughout Latin America.

This collection includes many of Marcella's favorite dishes, desserts, and drinks inspired by her travels in Central and South America; tamales, ceviche, empanadas, flan and many more favorites from countries including Mexico, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Puerto Rico. She has also included lots of pages about ingredients that are less common in the US including prickly pear, yuca root, and epazote. 

The book includes an overview of Latin American cheeses available in the US, and pages describing various methods of chili preparation, how to prepare cactus, and tips for frying foods. Marcella has also devoted a page to her favorite tools in the kitchen; things that will make cooking this cuisine more efficient and more fun.

“I am completely & utterly enchanted by this book. There is just something so personal and intimate about these hand-drawn & lettered recipes — it’s like receiving a letter from a dear friend who’s been living abroad. Every page is so colorful & vibrant, you can almost smell the spices.”

~Emma Christensen, theKitchn.com

“Marcella is an artist and a food-lover, and she's combined these two passions quite gorgeously..."





Marcella's art is top notch! I am constantly gifting her art prints, cards and stickers - they feel so personal. I also have loved taking her workshops and learning basics in watercolor!

I love how Marcella's watercolors have such a distinct style and feel to them. They're so colorful, I feel like I can spot from far away because they're so distinct.

Patrick Abrams

As a collector of Marcella's watercolors, I have a six of her frames in my living room and swap the watercolors out seasonally with different prints- it's so fun to change them up, and I love how big her collection is. It's a joy to curate my wall with these watercolors!

I bought 3 copies, 1 for me and 2 for Christmas gifts. When my daughter opened hers she was enthralled she sat down and read through it for an hour. Marcella's artwork is really nice and I like that its hand written. I appreciate the range of the recipes. Thank you.

The beautiful illustrations transport you to the magic of Latina cooking! During the Pandemic I ordered the cookbook without actually looking at it. I loved it so much, I have ordered two more, plus the Cuban one! Thank you so much!!!
