The Salsitas Story
Secrets of Salsa grew out of an adult school English conversation class, attended by women struggling with a strange culture and a difficult, unknown language. They gathered to learn English, of course, but also to find mutual support. They began sharing meals and recipes, and gradually, out of that beginning, came this book. As the project progressed, and as the first editions were published and found success, the women gained confidence and pride in skills they had never even realized were valuable.
Ten years later, Secrets of Salsa has sold over 27,000 copies worldwide, and the proceeds from these sales have gone to the continued support of the Anderson Valley Adult School, so that others, too, can gain the language and citizenship skills needed for successful, productive lives.
So when you enjoy these wonderful salsa recipes, know that you are participating, as well, in a ongoing community success story. But, most importantly, of course, you have some truly wonderful salsa experiences ahead of you. ¡Bien provecho!
