Tita, una mujer joven enamorada, no puede seguir sus sueños y casarse con Pedro, su amante, debido a las tradiciones de su mamá. La muchacha siente como ella solamente puede expresarse mientras está cocinando. Una novela clásica llena de humor, romance, y recetas.

Un libro muy bueno y a pesar de que la historia es de amor no es empalagosa

Publicada en 1989, esta novela está escrita con un realismo mágico que combina lo sobrenatural con lo mundano en la vida de Tita. Sus amoríos, su relación con su familia y todo lo relacionado con la importancia de la cocina y las recetas típicas mexicanas de la época. Si les gustó el libro, ¡vean la película!
