Ama: A Modern Tex-Mex Cookbook
The best Tex-Mex combines the deep traditions of Texan and Mexican cooking, teasing out their nuances and highlighting their unique flavors, ingredients, and techniques. It is a cuisine built on deliciousness, textures- melty, crunchy, chewy- surprising flavor combinations, and the frontier spirit that motivated someone to make a piecrust out of Fritos.
Tex-Mex is the cuisine that chef Josef Centeno grew up with in San Antonio, Texas. It's the food that fuels the delicious, inventive, cross-cultural dishes he serves at his restaurants in Los Angeles. It's the casual, irresistible food he cooks with his family. And now it's the food you can cook at home, too.
Brimming with Tex-Mex dishes like you've never had them before, Ama takes on classics such as huevos rancheros, breakfast tacos, and enchiladas- along with one raging nacho party. Organized into chapters by type of food- breakfasts, salads, meats, drinks and desserts, and a tantalizing array of snacks and munchies, this beautifully photographed cookbook contains down-home cooking interwoven with the story of a deeply rooted Tex-Mex family and their love of food.
Bring the very best of what this marriage of cultures and flavors offers to your own table.
