Pajarito Press LLC of Los Alamos is proud to share the news that The Chile Line—Historic Northern New Mexican Recipes, an extraordinary cookbook of tantalizing recipes preserved by author Liddie Martinez, has won Honorable Mention in the 2020 Eric Hoffer Book Awards in the “Home” category. The Wire-O-bound volume is strewn with mouth-watering photographs by Liddie herself, with book design and photo manipulation by Pajarito Press’s art director, Mark Rayburn.
The award is accompanied by a judge’s commentary, which itself is a brief masterpiece describing New Mexico and its complex history, culture, and cuisine: “In New Mexico, the chile is a subject close to the heart—a topic that stirs emotion and, of course, perks the taste buds. From home-cooked treasures passed down from generation to generation, to timeless recipes that originated over 400 years ago in Spain, the author approaches this solemn topic with the tenacity of an academic and delivers it in such a way that even the cautious beginner can find success. With a variety of delicious recipes and a dash of history, the hungry and curious reader is sure to leave full, both of inspiration and knowledge of New Mexico’s prized cuisine and culture.”
