I confess I bought this book solely for the chapter on tortillas because grocery store corn tortillas taste like cardboard, and flour tortillas have become ridiculously expensive for what they are.
Now the question becomes, will I actually take the time to do it? Just not all the time. I know me. As for the rest of the book, I'm ambivalent. Stupak has that "celebrity chef" title that is usually laden with pretentiousness, preciousness, and more emphasis on enhancing the personal marketing I confess I bought this book solely for the chapter on tortillas because grocery store corn tortillas taste like cardboard, and flour tortillas have become ridiculously expensive for what they are.
Stupak has that "celebrity chef" title that is usually laden with pretentiousness, preciousness, and more emphasis on enhancing the personal marketing brand than on teaching readers.
And, yes, he puts his toe right up to all those lines, what with the constant reminders of his background at "celebrity" restaurants where a meal for two can cost more than many regular folks spend on food in an entire month. OTOH, he doesn't cross that line and so comes across as a guy who just really, really likes food, genuinely respects Latino food, and can snack down on some tacos.
He comes across as a guy who'd like to see the humble taco get a little respect. And then there is that devilish little part of him that can't resist playing around with tradition and expanding the definition of what something is.
It makes for a readable book. But it IS a cookbook, and my criteria for cookbooks remains the same as ever: Is the book formatted to be functional? Is the information, especially the recipes, reliable and doable in a home kitchen? Did I learn anything? Will I ever cook from it? To those, my answers are: mostly, seem to be, absolutely, probably not much.
In the end, that plays out to somewhere between a 3 and 4 rating for me. I'll break that down. I have the Kindle version of the book, so can only speak to that format. The navigation worked well. It did take me a while to realize the TOC contains active links to the chapters since they are presented in regular font. I get that it looks more polished, but I think we've all become accustomed to active links either being more obvious or a note to reader that they exist.
Oddly, the sections listed at the beginning of each chapter and the index do show the usual blue underline indicating active links, so that was odd. While I am not photo-dependent with cookbooks, I think photos of the different chiles under the descriptions would be helpful.
There are some photos in the book, very nice ones, but they are more for decoration than information. I also wish cookbook authors would number the steps in their recipes or at least bullet them so that they are easier to follow while working. This is especially helpful with ebook cookbooks since an errant tap on the tablet can suddenly land you on a different page.
The couple of salsas I made were tasty, and I found the instructions clear and the recipe processes well-ordered. I appreciate that Stupak included the storage times at the end. Maybe next time he kindly might include notes on whether the sauces can ever be frozen for those of us who batch cook or frequently have leftovers.
Sure, fresh is always best, but wasting food isn't an option either. There's a lot of great information throughout the book about both process and ingredients. Also, Stupak is good at explaining what things should look and feel like. Which leads us to the question of how useful all this is.
For me, I got what I came for on the strength of the tortilla-making info alone. Some of the salsas will likely make it into moderate rotation. As for the main fillings, I might make a third of them once just to see what they are like, but maybe half of them I know I will never make. My guess is that I'll incorporate ideas from the book into my seat-of-the-pants cooking style rather than follow them religiously, but that's OK.
Aug 06, Aloha rated it it was amazing. Tacos for the true gourmet. Not for the Taco Bell gourmand. This beautiful book has balls. I don't recall a recipe for Rocky Mountain oysters tacos but wouldn't be surprised if there is one. Along with basic recipes for proficient mole sauce and pork carnitas, the book featured tripe and tongue tacos.
The recipes are uncompromising with the soul of a well-traveled chef who loves every single of these dishes. View 1 comment. Oct 26, Robert Durough, Jr. This racy, mouthwatering, intriguing collaborative journey through food and culture by Alex Stupak and Jordana Rothamn is what I want all my future food books to imitate. Yes, simple recipe books have their place on my shelves, but none of them make me want to prepare and eat the fruit of their bullet points as does this delectable literature and makes-me-want-to-eat-the-page photography.
More, please? Of course, there are things one needs to know in the making of a taco, which is why there are sections on ingredients, sauces, and the all-important tortilla. This reminds me of my time living in Belize and eating freshly made, white corn tortillas with caldo soup.
This is not Taco Bell. This is good. If you want to dive head first into tacos, or if you want to want to like tacos, this book will do it for you. Jul 25, Shava Nerad rated it it was amazing. This is not just a cookbook, but a gastronomic love story about masa, the hominy dough that tortillas are made from, by a chef who never grew up with the stuff. This is the fusion chef who invented the jalapeno popper, y'all -- the world owes him a debt of This book is written with so much love it just oozes from the pages like tasty melted cheese, into your heart.
There's a lot of technique, but a lot of it's on that level of the adventure chef -- grinding your own homin This is not just a cookbook, but a gastronomic love story about masa, the hominy dough that tortillas are made from, by a chef who never grew up with the stuff. There's a lot of technique, but a lot of it's on that level of the adventure chef -- grinding your own hominy, and finding the perfect organically sourced stuff and all, right? That's not me. But you can read those parts as food porn, and adapt any recipe for store-bought Masa Harina, and he knows I will and most of you will too.
Most of these recipes, if they have exotic ingredients, they're only exotic because they are peasant food from another climate, and substitutions are given, wistfully.

Убедившись еще раз, что Сьюзан и Стратмор продолжают разговаривать, Хейл начал импровизировать. Введя несколько модифицированных команд на языке Паскаль, он нажал команду ВОЗВРАТ. Окно местоположения Следопыта откликнулось именно так, как он рассчитывал. ОТОЗВАТЬ СЛЕДОПЫТА.
Когда он проволок ее по ковру, с ее ног соскочили туфли. Затем он одним движением швырнул ее на пол возле своего терминала. Сьюзан упала на спину, юбка ее задралась.
Мне много чего нужно, мистер Беккер, но неприятности точно не нужны. Кроме того, тот старик вроде бы обо всем позаботился. - Канадец. - Да. Он вызвал скорую.
Хорошо бы их вытянуть.
