To the Native Americans of the Southwest, every food , whether plant or animal, is considered sacred. In this gloriously photographed book, renowned photographer, Native American food expert, and chef Lois Ellen Frank (Kiowa), presents more than 100 recipes that are rich in natural flavors and in tune with today’s health eating habits.

Frank spent over fifteen years visiting Pueblos and Indian reservations in the Southwest, documenting the time-honored techniques and recipes of many of the indigenous foods from this region. With the help of culinary advisor Walter Whitewater, a member of the Navajo Nation from Pinon, Arizona, and a contemporary chef in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Frank has adapted the traditional recipes to modern palates and kitchens.

Inside you’ll find such dishes as Lamb-Stuffed Chiles, Spicy Corn Soup, Indian Tacos, Fried Squash Blossoms, Zuni Sunflower Cakes, and Prickly Pear Ice. With its wealth of information, Foods of the Southwest Indian Nations makes it easy to prepare and celebrate authentic Native American cooking in both traditional and contemporary recipes.
