Ciudad de Mexico
By Edson Diaz Fuentes
2021 • Hardie Grant
An evocative Mexican cookbook, focusing on authenticity and accessibility.
As the late Anthony Bourdain said in 2014, "Mexico has the most misunderstood, underrated, underrepresented cuisine on earth." But now, you just need to take a spin around your local supermarket, health food shop, or online store to see how an interest in Mexican home cooking has gathered pace in the UK, Europe, and beyond – and if anyone knows how to marry authenticity with accessibility, it's Edson Diaz-Fuentes. Having spent years recreating the food of home with the ingredients to hand in New York and London, Edson has had the unique opportunity of breaking down his native cuisine to the basics – flavors, textures, aromas – to truly understand how, and why, Mexican food can be replicated in every home kitchen, regardless of location.
