Frutas y Verduras, Guide to the Fresh Taste of Mexico, an interactive field guide to the indigenous and local produce of Mexico is now on Kickstarter and runs through October 25.
Frutas y Verduras is the labour of love by Margret Hefner, a Canadian personal chef who has spent years in Mexico cooking with local ingredients, many of which are rarely accessible outside the country – or even the regions in wich they are they grown.

Designed with rich image slideshows, audio pronunciation and simply explained essential information, this guide will demystify the special and unique fresh produce. Simple, straightforward text enables you to choose, use and prepare each ingredient with confidence so that you can get the most enjoyment from their flavors and reap the nutritional benefits.
