COOKS NOTES: Timing and Advance Preparation The rice pudding can be ready in an hour, much of which wont involve your direct participation. It may be prepared through Step 2 a day or two in advance, then buttered and broiled shortly before serving. Historical Notes: Arroz con leche This dessert is softer and more connamony than our baked rice pudding. The flavors are simple and close to home, but its easy to develop a thoroughgoing love for it, spoonful after spoonful. mexican people everywhere serve it as regularly as they do flan; its creamy and, in its own way, light and soothing. This is an especially pretty and tasty recipe, based on one from Zelayarans Las 500 (quinentos) mejores recetas de la cocina mexicana. (The 500 best recipes of the Mexican Kitchen). Pronounced: Lahs keen-yen-toes may-hor-ays ree-setahs day lah ko-cheenah may-hi-kaanah. It would be welcome after a hearty soup like Menudo (may-noo-doe) or Shrimp-Ball soup; it travels well to potlucks. Leftovers, thinned with milk and warmed, are very good for breakfast. Rice pudding brings to my mind the volatile, chancy crowd of Mexico Citys Garibaldi Square, where this dessert, only one of the attractions, sits in huge, milky masses stuck with a raisin or two for decoration. Or sometimes I am reminded of the well-used walkways around the Oaxacan (wah-hock-can) market, where ladies sell it in paper cups at sundown. Or I picture any of a dozen other typical scenes: from rude, makeshift street stands to well-appointed traditional restaurants-where arroz con leche (air-rose cone letch-ay) (roll those double Rs baby) is the thing you have.
