Elvira Troyo Carranza is a mother of four; Lorena, José, Octavio and Héctor, three grand-daughters and two sisters. Born in Mexico City, Elvira developed her professional career as a substitute teacher.
Elvira now lives in Houston with her husband and has an essential passion for cooking good healthy food, not only to feed the body through a fresh and nutritious method, but also because good cooking feeds the soul. Her cooking experience comes from her mother and grandmother and has been complemented through recommendations and recipes studied, tasted, learned and observed around her diverse trips around the world.
Elvira has written this book based on the belief that every person on earth must find something like this to do, that is, to find something attractive to your senses and try to develop it with pleasure. The joy derived becomes a way of living. Doing whatever has to be done joyfully, will return to you as a wellbeing sensation, which then may be shared with whomever is around you in life or even someone you meet on the streets.
