Like Water for Chocolate

Who: Laura Esquivel
When:
You miss Mexico and you’re not on a diet
Where: beach, mountains, and all points in between
Why: An appetizing approach, using recipes to tell the story, plus warm, memorable characters. I watched the movie after reading the book, and I don’t know how anyone could follow it without reading the book first. Read it, even if you’ve seen the movie!
