"A collection of 100 recipes for anyone who wants to cook traditional Mexican food in all its surprising freshness and variety, ranging from the simplest dishes to more complex ones, and including both the classic and the lesser-known regional gems of this cuisine. Nopalito provides a snapshot of regional Mexican cuisine from the perspective of Gonzalo Guzman, head chef at San Francisco's popular restaurant of the same name. With recipes for 100 traditional Mexican dishes (but through a California lens) from Puebla, Mexico City, Michoacan, the Yucatan, and beyond--including many recipes from the author's hometown of Veracruz--this beautifully photographed cookbook brings the warmth of Mexican cooking into the kitchens of home cooks. The book includes fundamental techniques of Mexican cuisine, insights into Mexican food and culture, and favorite recipes from Nopalito"--Provided by publisher.
