Product description

Product Description

Discover the flavors of Mexican street food in your own kitchen

Americans are having a love affair with the taco. What began as affection for the fast-food version—that hard yellow shell filled with ground beef and mysterious yellow cheese—has blossomed into an all-out obsession for the real thing, with upscale renditions and taco trucks popping up from coast to coast.

Now, with Tacos, Tortas, and Tamales, chef Roberto Santibañez shows you how to recreate the thrilling, authentic flavors of the taquerias of Mexico in your own home. In addition to tacos, the book also explores the equally exciting Mexican sandwiches called tortas and hearty tamales, as well as salsas, condiments, fresh juices, and even desserts and refreshing margaritas.

  • Author Roberto Santibañez is also the author of Rosa's New Mexican Table and Truly Mexican, as well as the chef and owner of Fonda restaurants in Brooklyn and Manhattan
  • Santibañez's Truly Mexican was chosen as a New York Times Notable Cookbook of 2011
  • Using easy-to-find ingredients and simple techniques, this is the perfect introduction to real Mexican cooking for enthusiastic beginners and experienced cooks alike

While the flavors you'll find here are exciting and complex, the cooking itself is anything but complicated. With Tacos, Tortas, and Tamales on your kitchen shelf, dinner will never be dull again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Completely happy and pictures galore! 24 July 2014

I'm SO satisfied and happy with my book. First off, I'm a visual person. I like pictures to go with recipes. I'd say about 85% of these recipes have pictures to go with them, so that was a delight for me. I've already made the flour tortillas. Easy! Delicious!! I have also made pork carnitas to go with our homemade tortillas. They were just wonderful. The contents of this book is Tacos, Tortas, Tamales, Salsas and Condiments, Drinks and Desserts. I'm most excited about the Tamales recipes. This author is very thorough with his directions and instructions, I've noticed. Would recommend this book to anyone wanting to try some south-of-the-border recipes :)

I have to add that thanks to this book, I feel much more confident in my tortilla-making abilities. I don't have a tortilla press or anything (but the recipe helped me through that) but after making tortilla's by the book twice, I decided I wanted to make a tortilla that was about 70% flour and 30% masa harina. I made them and they were SO heavenly. But I can't tell you how this cookbook has helped me gain more confidence to DO that. Anyway, just wanted to add that. Again, extremely satisfied with this hard-back book.

GREATEST BOOK ""ever"" on Mexican cooking. Not only does it have GREAT recipes, but also explanations of why . Explained different kinds of cooking for different foods, and WHY. Showed different kinds of chile's and explained each as to their color, taste and what kinds of foods they would be good in. AND SO MUCH MORE ! This is a "MUST" have for a new cook, but for a seasoned cook also.

I have only used a couple of the recipes so far, but I like what is see. I made the Carnitas and suggest using less salt by probably half. Dish was a little too salty.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great ideas! But the called for salt could kill you! 8 September 2014

I'm giving this a four star even with the glaring problem throughout the entire book. The salt content is enough to kill a moose!! Use common sense and don't throw tablespoons full of salt into your dishes and they'll turn out fine, albeit I did have to Dr a few things here and there. But that's also the nature of a cookbook. Its a guideline, an idea.. Not an absolute rule. So I do recommend this book, there's some pretty great recipe ideas in it, just... Use common sense.
