The narrator's great-aunt Tita is the youngest of three daughters born to Mama Elena, the tyrannical owner the the De la Garza ranch. While still in her mother's womb, she wept so violently - as her mother chopped onions - that she caused Mama Elena to begin early labor; and Tita slipped out in the middle of the kitchen table, amid the spices and fixings for noodle soup. This early encounter with food soon became a way of life, and Tita grew up to be a master chef. Each chapter of the novel begins with one of Tita's recipes and her careful instructions for preparation. The jacket has a tiny tear at the spine heel, in front. 245 pages, no marks or tears. Price not clipped. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.
