Colombian-born Hoffmann has lived in Miami for the last 17 years; she has a Spanish-language cooking and entertaining series on Galavision/Univision and is the host of a new Food Network show. This companion book to that series features her take on Latin cooking, from classics like Frijoles Rancheros to fusion dishes such as South-of-the-Border Bouillabaisse. Many recipes don't seem particularly Latin, and Hoffmann herself comes across as rather fatuous. Nevertheless, expect demand from fans of the TV shows.More Reviews and Recommendations
Born in Colombia and based in Miami, INGRID HOFFMANN has been fascinated with food, cooking, and style since she was a little girl. She started cooking with her mother, a Cordon Bleu chef, at such a young age that she needed a stool to reach the stove. With her mother she discovered not only a love of cooking but also a flair for entertaining, and in no time she developed her own distinctive style. Years later, Ingrid opened a successful restaurant and catering firm in Miami. She currently stars in Simply Delicioso on Food Network and Delicioso on Galavision/Univision, a Latin cooking and entertaining show.
