It all starts with a fresh, lovingly made tortilla.

Description

Superstar chef Alex Stupak’s love of real Mexican food quite literally changed his life; it caused him to quit the world of fine-dining pastry and open the smash-hit restaurant Empellón Taqueria in New York City. Now he’ll change the way you make—and think about—tacos forever.

TACOS is a deep dive into the art and craft of one of Mexico’s greatest culinary exports. We start by making fresh tortillas from corn and flour, and explore variations featuring innovative grains and flavor infusions. Next we master salsas, from simple chopped condiments to complex moles that simmer for hours and have flavor for days. Finally we explore filling, both traditional and modern, from a pineapple-topped pork al pastor to pastrami with mustard seeds.

But TACOS is more than a collection of beautiful things to cook; wrapped up within it is an argument. Through these recipes, essays and sumptuous photographs by Evan Sung, the 3-Michelin-star veteran makes the case that Mexican food should be as esteemed as the highest French cooking.

nice tribute to the taco
you can actually design a theme party just based on tacos. The variety of tacos; through the shells, the fillings, the toppings and sauces. The recipes are delicious, and I do like the taco evolution stories within the book, to the point where I'd consider it a coffee table book.
