This authentic guide to the making, eating and etiquette of Mexican Tacos comes from Lily Rameirez- Foran, a Mexican born shopkeeper, food writer, storyteller and, as she says herself, mad dreamer and lover of all things Irish.
Broken down into sections on making the Taco’s themselves, Fillings, Salsas & Sides and littered with tips, tricks and anecdotes throughout, there is a wealth of different combinations to try in this small but mighty book. Recipes run from the very spicy (there's a salsa that she says only her brother could ever eat) to the mild and from very meaty drunken beef barbacoa tacos to vegan sweet potato & carrot tinga, covering everything in between. The conversational tone of her writing makes you feel like you are at one of the excellent classes she runs from her shop Picado, on Richmond Street in Dublin - great place to pick up any extra ingredients you might need.
This is the first in a series of cook books from Irish Authors by Blasta books. Watch out for Hot Fat by Gastro Gays, The United Nation of Cookies by Jess Murphy (Kai Galway) & Eoin Cluskey (Bread 41) and Wok by Kwanghi Chan that will all be released later this year.
