Recuerdos y Recetas: Memories and Recipes of the Mexicano Families of Rancho de la Canoa, Compiled by Amanda Salcido Castillo and Patricia Preciado Martin.
This book includes authentic recipes and stories from the families who lived at Canoa Ranch between 1951 to 1964. It is a collaboration between Amanda Salcido Castillo, a child of Canoa, and Patricia Preciado Martin, a native Arizonan author known for documenting Arizona’s Mexican American history and culture in publications such as, “Songs my Mother Sang to Me” and “Beloved Land: An Oral History of Mexican Americans in the Southwest.”
The publication took nearly seven months to complete. More than a cookbook, this book features recipes using ingredients grown in the Canoa family gardens, family photos, drawings and stories, including some Mexican “dichos” or sayings.
