If you need any more proof that all of South Florida -- not just Miami -- has become Hispanically enriched, look to the De Nuestra Mesa cookbook. Published by New Hope Charities in West Palm Beach, the compilation of Latin recipes, narratives, and humorous bits recently won first prize in the 1999 Tabasco Community Cookbook Awards. The contest's judges said the book "supports the feeling and spirit of the South Florida community." What's more, proceeds from the sale of the book go to good causes: a range of services for less fortunate children and families, including daycare and medical care. Each copy costs $19.95 plus $3.50 for shipping and handling; contact Josephine Lopez-Ona (561-582-9893) to congratulate her by ordering a book for your kitchen.
