Overview
The nationally syndicated columnist and bestselling author of Ask a Mexican presents a fascinating and tasty trip through the history and culture of Mexican food in this country, uncovering great stories and charting the cuisine s tremendous popularity in el Norte.
Nationally syndicated columnist and bestselling author of Ask a Mexican Gustavo Arellano presents a tasty trip through the history and culture of Mexican food in this country, uncovering great stories and charting the cuisine s tremendous popularity north of the border. Arellano s fascinating narrative combines history, cultural criticism, food writing, personal anecdotes, and Jesus on a tortilla. In seemingly every decade for over a century, America has tried new culinary trends from south of the border, loved them, and demanded the next big thing. As a result, Mexican food dominates American palates to the tune of billions of dollars in sales per year, from canned refried beans to tortilla wraps and ballpark nachos. It s a little-known history, one that s crept up on this country and left us better for it."
