Real Mexican Food
In 2008, Mexican chef Felipe Feuntes Cruz brought the vibrant flavors of his home country to cold British shores when he opened his London restaurant, Benito's Hat. Now, he's ready to share some of the best sellers from the menu, along with the family recipes that inspired him along the way. In Real Mexican Food, Chef Felipe treats the reader to a glimpse of the best of authentic Mexican fare- in all its sometimes hearty, usually spicy, occasionally light and citrus-y, but always delicious glory. Think Beef Birria Burritos, Taquitos loaded with Smoky Chipotles and Shrimp, Refried Beans with juicy Chorizo- all enhanced with creamy queso, rich avocado, piles of crunchy lettuce, juicy tomatoes and drizzled with pungent, peppery sauces like pico de gallo and hot salsa brava. And remembering that you'll need to wash all those spices down, he's included his recipes for ice cold margaritas and a selection of fruity, non-alcoholic juice drinks. Thanks to this tantalizing book, you don't have to go all the way to his cocina in London, or head to Cancun or Veracruz for a tasty Mexican meal. Now you can recreate some of Chef Felipe's classic recipes right in your kitchen. Real Mexican Food: Authentic Recipes for Burritos, Tacos, Salsas and More By Ben Fordham and Felipe Fuentes Cruz. Published by Ryland Peters & Small. Hardcover. 144 pages.
