A dear friend of ours, Andrea wrote this cookbook to share the Mexican dishes she grew up with as well as spread awareness about the struggles faced by immigrant families. The release of her cookbook directly funded her family's legal fees to become citizens and became both a symbol of their journey and a rallying cry. Our copies are each personally signed by Andrea. 

About the author:
In this inspiring and creative Mexican cookbook, Andrea Pons takes you on a journey through flavor, family, and her immigration story. With 78 easy and delicious recipes from three generations of women in her family, this cookbook offers you a taste of authentic Mexican cuisine.

 
Mamacita began as a celebration of the authentic Mexican recipes Andrea Pons loved growing up, but it quickly became a way for her to return to her roots and reconnect with her Mexican heritage. In her journey through food, she shares not only her experiences with cooking but also her family's immigration story.
 
When Pons was faced with the possibility of deportation, and she and her family struggled to navigate the US immigration system—in the country that had been their home for 16 years— she looked to these recipes for help. To fund her family's significant legal fees, she sold self-published copies of 
Mamacita, and the cookbook became both a symbol of their journey and a rallying cry.
 
This new edition of 
Mamacita offers 30 more photos and 11 additional recipes, allowing you to taste even more of the love in Pons's dishes.
