Muy Bueno Calendar to benefit The Denver Foundation

(Denver, CO)  Yvette Marquez-Sharpnack, author with her sister and mother of the upcoming calendar and cookbook titled Muy Bueno: Three-Generations of Authentic Mexican Flavor, and Jeanine Thurston of Fototails Photography announced today that a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the calendar  will benefit the Strengthening Neighborhoods Program of The Denver Foundation.

Marquez-Sharpnack wrote Muy Bueno with her sister Veronica Gonzalez-Smith and their mother Evangelina Soza.   To be published in 2011, the cookbook will take readers south-of-the-border for down-home Mexican comfort food with time-tested favorite family recipes and treasured food traditions. Stories are intertwined with each recipe, as the authors take you through a cultural history and their family background. Both daughters and mother have joined forces to bring you all that is “Muy Bueno” from three generations of cooking — the old world, the traditional and the modern world.

For those who are interested in sampling the recipes before the book is published, Fototails Photography has created a 2011 calendar including 12 recipes with brilliant images.   “What could be better than sharing in some cooking, maybe some drinks, and great conversation with family and friends over the holidays.  You could make a night of it, have a party over it, and dabble in some authentic Mexican recipes that have been passed along for over three generations,” says Thurston.
