A celebration of the distinctive cuisine and culture of Oaxaca, from "one of Mexico's best chefs" (Anthony Bourdain). Ruiz is chef and owner of the Casa Oaxaca restaurants (El Restaurante, Café & Restaurante, and the Casa Oaxaca hotel) and Oaxacalifornia, in Oaxaca, Mexico, as well as of Guzina Oaxaca in Mexico City. Widely known as an ambassador for Oaxacan gastronomy, he has represented this celebrated cuisine around the world. He lives in Oaxaca.
With a foreword by Enrique Olvera, star of the Netflix series CHEF'S TABLE.
RECIPES AND MORE: Originally published in Mexico in 2018, but reworked and revised with new content for a U.S. audience, the book's more than fifty recipes are accompanied by essays on Oaxacan culture and traditions, as well as a guide to the best traditional eateries in Oaxaca (very helpful for travelers; Culture Trip named Oaxaca the No. 1 destination in the world in 2019).
