Like Water for Chocolate - hardcover

ID: 4325395874

[EAN: 9780385420167], Tweedehands, zeer goed, [SC: 31.07], [PU: Doubleday], MEXICO, RECIPES, HOME REMEDIES,, Children's Fiction|Family|General, Children's Fiction|Love & Romance, Fiction|Romance|General, Jacket, Hardcover with movie tie-in dust jacket. (ISBN 0-385-42016-1) Very good tight copy, unread, very good glossy jacket. "A novel in monthly installments with recipes, romances and home remedies." "To the table or to the bed, you must come when you are bid." The number-one bestseller in Mexico in 1990, "Like Water for Chocolate" is a romantic, poignant tale, touched with bittersweet moments of magic and sensuality. Evocative of "How to Make an American Quilt" in structure. "Tampopo" is a celebration of food, and "Heartburn" in its irony and wit, is a lively and funny tale of family life in turn-of-the-century Mexico. The narrator's great-aunt Tita is the youngest of three daughters born to Mama Elena, the tyrannical owner of De la Garza ranch. While still in her mother's womb, she wept so violently — as her mother chopped onions — that she caused Mama Elena to begin early labor, and Tita slipped out in the middle of the kitchen table, amid the spices and fixings for noodle soup. This early encounter with food soon became a way of life, and Tita grew up to be a master chef. Each chapter of the novel begins with one of Tita's recipes and her careful instructions for preparation. In well-born Mexican families, tradition dictates that the youngest daughter does not marry, but remains at home to care for her mother. Even though Tita has fallen in love. Novel.
