Tasty Mexican Recipes for Every Day


'I would cook and eat every single dish in it' Sami Tamimi, author of 'Falastin'

Discover a real taste of Mexico with a modern twist.

In Mexico, ‘sobremesa’ – which translates to ‘over the table’ – is all about enjoyment. It is the tradition of relaxing at the dining table with loved ones, sharing food, stories and quality time.

From soups to salads, suppers to sharers and small plates, staples to desserts, in her début cookbook Mexican-born chef and recipe developer Susana Villasuso has distilled the top recipes inspired by her family, and the best-known dishes made in kitchens up and down Mexico.

The result is a collection of veg, meat and fish recipes made with everyday ingredients to savour in your own home. These are flavourful, comforting and shareable dishes that you’ll keep coming back to for simple weeknight dinners, delicious weekend feasts and everything in between.


  • Sobremesa is like a fantasy come true. I would cook and eat every single dish in it.
    Sami Tamimi, co-author of 'Ottolenghi' and 'Falastin'
