New Taco Classics: Book Review #NewTacoClassics


Lorena Garcia’s New Taco Classics


This is truly a complete book. Don’t let the name fool you it is not only about tacos. In this cookbook you can find recipes for tostadas, arepas, fillings, dressings and so much more! I am a huge fan of molcajete sauces, yet I didn’t know how to make one. Now thanks to Lorena Garcia’s New Taco Classics I do various of them! Each one is delicious and can be used in so many different ways! There’s so much that I’m enjoying about this sophisticated, yet family-friendly, cook book, the recipes and photography are just fantastic!


As you can see the pictures are vibrant and definitely make you want to try out that recipe. 

About the book…

In LORENA GARCIA’S NEW TACO CLASSICS, Lorena Garcia explores and reimagines not only the traditional taco but also other Latin bite-sized dishes—arepas, tamales, tostadas, and nachos—through fusions of Latin and non-Latin flavors. Garcia deconstructs the traditional taco and focuses on the one theme that is central to the comfort foods from the streets of Mexico, Venezuela, Ecuador, Puerto Rico and Cuba: the concept of food in a vessel. With this theme in mind, Garcia builds a brand new taco template, and shows how anyone can create each layer. Starting with the base—the corn which is made into a taco, an arepa, a sope, an empanada, or even a tamal—she then moves to the many varieties of fillings and toppings along with side dishes to pair them with. With over 100 recipes of sauces and salsas, protein and vegetable fillings, taco shells and corn wrappings to make a variety of Latin street-food dishes, this cookbook—filled with colorful, enticing photos—is easy to follow and great for every-day meals and casual entertaining.
