Taqueria: New-Style Mexican Cooking

Share to printerest Share to fb Share to twitter Share to mail Share to print

Chef Paul Wilson's Taqueria is an homage to Mexico's most popular feel-good foods.

Mexican cuisine is as varied and sophisticated as other world cuisines, and Paul Wilson has brought his expertise in Latin-American cooking to the regional recipes in Taqueria.

In his introduction, Wilson says, “As a chef, I’ve embarked on many travels around the world, but nowhere has inspired me quite like Mexico. With this book I have tried to deliver my own interpretation of this fascinating food culture. There is a great saying that the tortilla is the knife, fork, serviette, and plate of Mexico, and my focus here is firmly on the country’s popular feel-good foods – with tacos, salsas and cocktails given a starring role – but refreshed and given a modern take.”

Enjoy these recipes for a cool cucumber salad, Baja-Med style roasted salmon tacos, and an icy coffee margarita. Find Taqueria at Amazon or a bookseller near you.
