Tacos, Tortas, and Tamales in the NYTBR!


“Roberto Santibañez … lets enthusiasm run riot in TACOS, TORTAS AND TAMALES: Flavors From the Griddles, Pots and Streetside Kitchens of Mexico (Wiley, $19.99), written with JJ Goode. The book is a big, warm embrace of cheap eats meant to be consumed on the run — what Santibañez calls “everyday food.” It’s an eye-opening experience for anyone who has never heard of cow-head tacos. Santibañez opens the door to a rich world of flavors and ingredients with recipes that include stewed frankfurter tortas, strawberry tamales, chopped liver tacos and a terrific lineup of smoothies, fruit drinks, salsas, cocktails and desserts.” —The New York Times Book Review

And the Wall Street Journal!

“If … you crave a taco of your own making, you need look no further than Roberto Santibañez’s “Tacos, Tortas and Tamales.” Mr. Santibañez recipes are unusual but easy to follow and he includes such oddities as strawberry tamales, tequila-raisin ice cream and peanut limeade. The book is illustrated with beautiful photographs. They make you hungry just looking at them.” —The Wall Street Journal
