Native American Cooking

In the comments on the book review for Canyon Gardens; The Ancient Pueblo Landscapes of the American Southwest, (see the post titled Designing Pragmatic Desert Built Environments), Erikka asked if I knew the title of a good Native American cook book. I love to cook and have a great little collection of New Mexico cook books, but none specifically on Native American cooking, although some may have a chapter or two devoted to the subject. For information and opinions, I turned to my helpful friends on the New Mexico Forum at City-Data, as I so often do.

You can see the discussion, now ongoing, and find some cook book titles at http://www.city-data.com/forum/new-mexico/373229-n-m-native-american-cookbooks.html.

For an online collection of Native American recipes, check out the Santa Ana Pueblo's web page, The Cooking Post, which is a wonderful resource for mail order foods, information, recipes, and even some cook books.

If you would like to check out a wonderful collection of favorite New Mexican recipes from some real experts, be sure to take a look at another ongoing discussion on the forum.

Erikka, thank you for your great input (and ideas for posts) on this blog!
