This is a tie-in book for a hip London restaurant to which, honestly, I have never visited. The book begins with a little history of the restaurant and from there you understand that this a little recipe book for Mexican Street Food with a cool London flair. As I approach food from a vegan perspective, the book has many recipes that are already vegan. In this case, many of the recipes can easily convert to vegan -- although Mexican recipes and Mexican food has traditionally began as a plant sourced cuisine. Many may claim that this is not authentic Mexican cuisine -- for example, one recipe called for Dr. Pepper, but this could easily be replaced with agave syrup. The gordita sliders which provides a fun masa fried bun can be veganized with a simple jackfruit "pulled pork" recipe and a simple vegan cheez sauce with turmeric, onion, and jalapeno.Anyone already comfortable with the techniques of Mexican cooking will be able to concoct their own flavour combinations if they wish, however, what really sets this book apart are the abundant high quality images of the recipes in tasteful, entertaining presentations.
Fabulous recipes, unusual in some respects. I probably have around 10 books on Mexican cuisine and this is my favourite.Elizabeth Lambert Ortiz is perhaps the finest contributor on the subject of Mexican food, but her books are lengthy and dense,This book has around 100 recipes - if you make 25 its worth it. Don't hesitate, just buy it.
Death by Burrito is the most creative, decadent cookbook in my kitchen. The section on peppers, with the photos, is very helpful. The current crowd-pleaser is Ancho, Lentil & Plantain Burritos. Truly, these are fabulously creative recipes that are "to die for" delish!
Got it as a gift for a family member and they loved it. My wife even copied some of the recipes out of the book before we wrapped it up :)
