    Essential Cuisines of Mexico
    ISBN: 9780307587725
    Publication date: 01/05/2010

    More than twenty-five years ago, when Diana Kennedy published The Cuisines of Mexico, knowledge and appreciation of authentic Mexican cooking were in their infancy. But change was in the air. Home cooks were turning to Julia Child for an introduction to French cuisine and to Marcella Hazan for the tastes of Italy. Through Diana Kennedy they discovered a delicious and highly developed culinary tradition they barely knew existed. The Cuisines of Mexico, Mexican Regional Cooking, and The Tortilla Book became best-sellers, and Diana Kennedy was recognized as the authority on Mexican food.

    Now a new generation has discovered that Mexican food is more than chimichangas, that they can find fresh hierbas de olor (pot herbs, including marjoram and Mexican bayleaf) and chilacas in their markets. The book that will become indispensable in their kitchens is The Essential Cuisines of Mexico.

  • Finding Mezcal A Journey Into the Liquid Soul of Mexico with 40 Cocktails
    Finding Mezcal A Journey Into the Liquid Soul of Mexico with 40 Cocktails
    ISBN: 9780399579004
    Publication date: 01/06/2018

    In this groundbreaking and deeply personal book, Ron Cooper--a leading voice in the artisanal mezcal movement, and the person largely responsible for popularizing the spirit in the United States--shares everything he knows about this storied, culturally rich, and now hugely in-demand spirit, along with 40 recipes.

    In 1990, artist Ron Cooper was collaborating with craftspeople in Oaxaca, Mexico, when he found mezcal--or, as he likes to say, mezcal found him. This traditional spirit was virtually unknown in the United States at the time, and Cooper founded Del Maguey Single Village Mezcal in order to import it. Finding Mezcal recounts Cooper's love affair with the spirit and the people who make it; its meteoric rise in popularity; and the delicate balance between sharing mezcal with the world and facilitating its preservation. Each chapter introduces a new mezcal, its producer, and its place of origin, while also covering mezcal production methods and the botany of the maguey (aka agave) plant, from which mezcal is distilled. Featuring 40 recipes developed for Del Maguey by chefs and bartenders from around the world, the book is copiously illustrated with photographs, as well as Cooper's artwork and that of his friend Ken Price, who illustrated Del Maguey's now-iconic labels.

    Lima-born Los Angeles chef and restaurateur Ricardo Zarate delivers a standout cookbook on the new "it" cuisine the food of Peru.

With 100 recipes (from appetizers to cocktails), lush colour photography, and Zarate's moving and entertaining accounts of Peru's food traditions and his own compelling story, The Fire of Peru beautifully encapsulates the excitement Zarate brings to the dining scene.

    Publication date: 01/10/2009

    Discover the rich and vibrant food and cooking of Peru, one of the most delicious, distinctive and ancient cuisines of the world

    Explore the fascinating origins of Peruvian food, from its roots in the Inca culture, through the rich inheritance of the Spanish conquistadors, and the later influences of African, Italian, French and Chinese immigrants

    An introduction to Peru's culinary traditions includes a guide to local ingredients from chilies, corn and potatoes to cassava, quinoa and fresh cheese

    A fantastic collection of over 65 authentic recipes including specialties from the rich coastal region, the Andean mountain range, the mysterious rainforest, and the bustling cities

    Illustrated with more than 400 stunning photographs, each recipe comes with step-by-step instruction and complete nutritional information

    Peruvian cuisine is considered to be one of the most diverse in the world. Thanks to its Inca origins and to Spanish, African, Sino-Cantonese, Japanese and finally Italian and French immigration, Peruvian cooking combines the flavors of four continents. With such a variety of traditional dishes, 28 different climates, and terrain that includes coasts, mountains, forest and jungle, Peruvian gastronomy is in constant evolution.

    Inca cuisine is still present in Peruvian cooking, mostly in the use of maize, potatoes, yucca and chillies - the much-loved Peruvian tamales date back to the Incas. This Andean inheritance was incorporated into the food traditions of the Spanish conquistadors in the 16th century, and by the waves of immigrants that have arrived in Peru ever since. Ceviche, one of Peru's most popular dishes, perfectly defines this fusion of Peruvian cooking: fresh fish from Peru's rich coastal fishing areas, mixed with Andean peppers, and onions from Spain, marinated in lemon juice from North Africa, and served Inca-style with potatoes and maize.

    Including well-known favorites, such as chicharrones (mouthwatering fried pork), empanadas (irresistible little pastries), and humitas and butifarras (tempting street-food snacks), this book also introduces dishes that have yet to travel further than the borders of Peru. These include satisfying and tasty soups that are meals in themselves; delicious corn, potato and bean side dishes; fish in tangy, spicy sauces; meat, richly flavored with chilies; and indulgent desserts that reflect the Peruvian love of sweet things.

    Peru's cuisine is a unique blend of the ancient with the modern; fueled by an abundance of natural ingredients; and inspired by different cooking traditions. With this book you can feast on food that combines the old world with the new, and explore the very best of one of an intriguing culinary inheritance.
