The Perfect Mother’s Day Gift: Simple to Sublime

Reviewed by Lauris Burns

Simple to Sublime may be the only cookbook you’ll ever need. From appetizers to desserts, Peruvian dishes to international flavors, this cookbook has it all. A combined effort of the talented membership of the AWLC, it offers a huge selection of recipes in Spanish and English, accompanied by gorgeous photography.

Learn multilingual cooking terminology. Try great recipes! Peruse the fruit section’s descriptive visual guide, and take advantage of the helpful substitution chart. All the while, enjoy the knowledge that you’re also helping to support worthy education projects in Peru.

The club’s most enduring project is its award-winning bilingual cookbooks, which have been in print for over 70 years. Simple to Sublime is the most comprehensive and beautiful book yet.
