Book Overview
75 recipes, evocative storytelling, and beautiful photography provide a lens into one of the planet's most interesting culinary destinations: Mexico City. Through lush photography and transcendent storytelling, award-winning food journalist and editor James Oseland takes readers on a journey through a day in the world's greatest street-food city as he explores Mexico's capital via home cooks, chefs, and bakers. As grill smoke mixes with morning fog, we watch the megalopolis stir to life and become a massive kitchen: onions are sliced, ceramic pots sizzle, chiles grill on flat-tops. By seven, everyone is open for business, boiling caf de ollo and cooking chilaquiles with freshly made salsa. By afternoon, we are served fried-on-the-spot barbacoa flautas in leafy La Condesa; by nighttime, we are devouring tacos al pastor along the avenues of the Centro Historico. World Food: Mexico City includes definitive guides to the world's largest city's best tortas, the mind-blowing mise en place of its pozole stands, the Technicolor creations of its fresh-juice hawkers, and so much more. This is a must-have for food lovers who understand--and care about--the world they live in, by celebrating what its people eat.
