<b>Superstar chef Alex Stupak's love of real Mexican food changed his life; it caused him to quit the world of fine-dining pastry and open the smash-hit Empellón Taqueria in New York City. Now he'll change the way you make--and think about--tacos forever. </b><br />  <br /> <i>Tacos</i> is a deep dive into the art and craft of one of Mexico's greatest culinary exports. Start by making fresh tortillas from corn and flour, and variations that look to innovative grains and flavor infusions. Next, master salsas, from simple chopped condiments to complex moles that simmer for hours and have flavor for days. Finally, explore fillings, both traditional and modern--from a pineapple-topped pork al pastor to pastrami with mustard seeds. <br />  <br /> But <i>Tacos</i> is more than a collection of beautiful things to cook. Wrapped up within it is an argument: Through these recipes, essays, and sumptuous photographs by Evan Sung, the 3-Michelin-star veteran makes the case that Mexican food should be as esteemed as the highest French cooking.

In nineteen thoughtful and engaging essays and stories, <I>You and I Eat the Same</I> explores the ways in which cooking and eating connect us across cultural and political borders, making the case that we should think about cuisine as a collective human effort in which we all benefit from the movement of people, ingredients, and ideas.<BR />  <BR /> An awful lot of attention is paid to the differences and distinctions between us, especially when it comes to food. But the truth is that food is that rare thing that connects all people, slipping past real and imaginary barriers to unify humanity through deliciousness. Don’t believe it? Read on to discover more about the subtle (and not so subtle) bonds created by the ways we eat.<BR />  <BR /><B>Everybody Wraps Meat in Flatbread:</B><BR /> From tacos to dosas to pancakes, bundling meat in an edible wrapper is a global practice.<BR />  <BR /><B>Much Depends on How You Hold Your Fork:</B><BR /> A visit with cultural historian Margaret Visser reveals that there are more similarities between cannibalism and haute cuisine than you might think.<BR />  <BR /><B>Fried Chicken Is Common Ground:</B><BR /> We all share the pleasure of eating crunchy fried birds.

<p><b>With 200,000+ copies in print, this <i>New York Times</i> bestseller shares the story and the recipes behind the chef and cuisine that changed the modern-day culinary landscape. </b><br /><br />Never before has there been a phenomenon like Momofuku. A once-unrecognizable word, it's now synonymous with the award-winning restaurants of the same name in New York City (Momofuku Noodle Bar, Ssäm Bar, Ko, Má Pêche, Fuku, Nishi, and Milk Bar), Toronto, and Sydney. Chef David Chang single-handedly revolutionized cooking in America and beyond with his use of bold Asian flavors and impeccable ingredients, his mastery of the humble ramen noodle, and his thorough devotion to pork.  <br /><br />Chang relays with candor the tale of his unwitting rise to superstardom, which, though wracked with mishaps, happened at light speed. And the dishes shared in this book are coveted by all who've dined—or yearned to—at any Momofuku location (yes, the pork buns are here). This is a must-read for anyone who truly enjoys food.</p>

<DIV><B>Named one of the Best Cookbooks of Fall 2018 by <I>The New York Times Book Review</I>, Epicurious, Grub Street, The Kitchn, and more</B><BR /><BR /> “The rare restaurant-y cookbook whose recipes actually turn out as well as the seemingly unattainable photos.”<BR /><B>—<I>The New York Times Book Review</I></B><BR />  <BR /> One flight up, in a bustling neighborhood bistro overlooking the chaos of one of downtown New York’s busiest streets, Ignacio Mattos serves food so uncannily delicious it consistently earns him accolades like “Chef of the Year,” and his restaurant Estela a spot among the World’s 50 Best.<BR /><BR /> Everyone wants a taste of Estela, from loyal local customers to out-of-town foodies, visiting chefs to visiting presidents. The food is bold, bright, layered, playful, and surprising. Innovative without being precious. Comfort food, really. Food that bursts to life in your mouth—food that hits you <I>right there</I>.<BR />  <BR /><I>Estela</I>, the long-awaited cookbook, shows how to think like Ignacio Mattos, who as an immigrant sees ingredients with fresh eyes. Here is how to look at something as ordinary as a button mushroom and make it extraordinary (shaved thin over ricotta dumplings), or as familiar as burrata and transform it (with a pool of juiced herby greens and charred bread). How to use vinegars, citruses, fish sauce, and pickling broth to give each bite a pop of flavor. How to compose a plate in layers, so that the deeper you dig, the more that is revealed, while each forkful carries an electric marriage of flavors and textures.<BR />  <BR /><I>Estela</I> presents over 133 recipes, including classics that will never leave the menu, like Lamb Ribs with Chermoula and Honey, Mussels Escabeche on Toast, and the hide-and- seek joy of Endive Salad with Walnuts and Ubriaco Rosso. Small plates meant for sharing with friends and family, like Cherry Tomatoes with Figs and Onion. Incredible pan-seared steaks. And basics for the pantry that will elevate whatever you feel like making.<BR />  <BR /> Estela is the restaurant, but <I>Estela</I> is far more than a restaurant cookbook. It’s an inviting and creative expression of Mattos’s fresh and influential style.</DIV>
