They also put out an accompanying book "Seasoned with Sun", but I don't have that in my collection...yet!
It really is an interesting cookbook...packed full of information on cooking, cooking tips and entertaining tips. Lots of interesting flavor combos and spices. They also have an additional section with some recipes translated into Spanish.
