About the Book
Published in November 2014 Cantina: recipes from a Mexican Kitchen is Paul Wilson’s second book. Full of innovative contemporary Mexican dishes, Cantina is the perfect companion to explore the bold and exciting flavours of Latin America.
In Cantina, Paul explores the real food of Mexico: from the intricate flavours of Oaxacan moles and the finest seafood dishes of the Baja and Yucatán peninsulas, to the bustling street food stalls of Mexico City. The book traverses this ancient landscape, famous as much for its food as its rich history, and Paul shares the flavours and little-known culinary secrets that are so unique to this part of Latin America.
Many distinct regional and ancient recipes await you, with mindblowing flavours to be found in dishes such as Barbecued lamb steak tacos with poblanos rajas & chimichurri, Yucatán-style baked fish with hominy rice, Street-style tostadas with seared tuna & wood-grilled vegetables and Warm bonito & fennel cebiche salad with figs & pomegranate. A useful chapter of recipes that represents the building blocks of Mexican cuisine is also included and shows you how to make amazing stocks, sauces, rubs, relishes, doughs and more.
Finally, an extensive chapter of delicious cocktails and drinks will have you set for many a celebration.
