As I write this post, I am thinking about what I will make for supper tonight for the first time: homemade corn tortillas. Homemade corn tortillas stuffed with roasted chicken, a whole variety of cheeses, and homemade salsa.
Considering the reading material that is now in my house, it is no wonder that I am hungry for this food. Tacos by Alex Stupak and Jordana Rothman, with its earthy photos of real (and, might I add, really delicious) food, is a feast for the eyes. And, when its recipes finally reach the table (after perhaps a few detours for taste-testing purposes), they are sure to please.
Each cookbook has its own flavor, if you will. And this one starts off with a heaping measure of explanations of Latino seasonings and ingredients—quite the helpful reference if you are new to this type of cooking. From queso fresco to chiles, it’s all covered. Plus, tips on making and storing tortillas are bound to make the cooking experience a success.
I recommend this book as a helpful guide for those who are testing the waters of Latino cooking. More experienced chefs will also find its pages useful and enticing.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
