Don't let the playful, commanding cover of The Painted Fish and Other Mayan Feasts make you think this is a light-weight book. It certainly is not; rather, it is a serious, accessible, and beautifully designed and executed memoir and cookbook about an historic part of our hemisphere. What a contrast: the Nordic Sonja, on her quest for healing and adventure, and the life she encounters, then embraces (she also embraces her Mayan lobster fisherman, Armando). Sonja Lillvik writes with enthusiasm, alternating tales of her life in the Yucatan with do-able and mouth-watering recipes--which she has now made her own. She clearly has an indomitable spirit to have perservered through differences in culture, language, pace of life, and--most decidedly--food. Read this as a cookbook; read it as a life; read it as a triumph. Me, I'm off to make Sopa de Lima to impress my company. And I'll read them a story or two from the book during dinner.|
