Mexican cuisine is all the rage - not the sweaty fast food tacos but good quality, well cooked, homemade traditional recipes.
Ferran Adria has announced his plans to open a Mexican restaurant in Barcelona and the chef believes that Latin American food is the next big culinary trend.
To match the growing interest in Mexican food a lot of recipe books are being launched and one of them is from cookbook author Deborah Schneider. In it she offers recipes on how to cook Mexican dishes in the slow cooker.
Tortilla Soup, Zesty Shredded Beef and tamales are just some of the recipes tackled in the book and although Mexican food wouldn't traditionally call for the use of a slow cooker - the ease of use and flavor packed dishes a slow cooker can offer works well with this style of cuisine.
