Cookbook Recommendation: Death by Burrito
The only thing better than Mexican food is Mexican STREET food. The cuisine is known for its comforting use of cheese, and, of course, its spicy kick. Summing it up cleverly is Shay Ola, author of the witty book, Death by Burrito. Inside, you’ll find the differences between habanero and mulato chilies, step-by-step instructions on how to roll the perfect burrito (accompanied by amazing pictures), and vibrant recipes that require no prior cooking experience. You can expect classic Mexican staples, such as shrimp and avocado tostadas and chicken enchiladas. But also look out for the more experimental dishes, like the quinoa, pumpkin and mushroom or ancho, lentil and plantain burritos. Now I wouldn’t be doing this book justice without mentioning the cocktails section. Shake up A Yo Da Horchata, or stir up a dead julep – both are delicious! For 20 bucks, Death by Burrito is filled with tricks of the trade that you won’t want to miss.
