Here’s some of what folks are already saying about Eat Mesquite!:

“Mesquite has been a favored food in the Stinkin’ Hot Desert for well over 8,000 years, so why stop now? Praise be to the Desert Harvesters for making “la pechita del mesquite” more hip than hip hop or industrial-strength chip dip. Mesquiteros of the world unite! Ahua!”
– Gary Nabhan, terroir-ist and co-founder of Sabores Sin Fronteras and Renewing America’s Food Traditions (RAFT)

“You’ll love this great collection: from home cookin’ to party fare, mouth-watering recipes celebrating the sweetest native bean trees of the Sonoran bioregion, and more. A toast (hmm, mesquite syrup, lime, tequila, salt?) to the dedicated locavores who made Eat Mesquite! happen.”
– Barbara Rose, Native foods caterer and educator,

“This is more than a unique cookbook, it is a revelation.”
– Craig Childs, author of House of Rain and The Secret Knowledge of Water
