Ciudad de Mexico: Recipes and Stories from the Heart of Mexico City by Edson Diaz-Fuentes (Hardback) – Our Review
After years of recreating the food of home in New York and London, Mexican chef Edson Diaz-Fuentes has broken down his native cuisine to the basics for the home cook. Presented in sections by time of day, Ciudad de Mexico takes the reader on a whirlwind tour of culinary highlights, from cantina breakfasts and street food, to lunchtime moles and taco truck favourites and sweet treats.
But while this book aims to evoke the true spirit of the country, it also functions as a key to unlock any mystery surrounding Mexican ingredients and flavours. With stunning location photography and narratives on Mexican food culture and handy substitution guides, this book is a must-have for the culinary explorer.
