ĦTequila! Cooking with the Spirit of Mexico
By Lucinda Hutson
This delightful book will have you making excuses to cook with Mexico's most famous export. Beautifully and colorfully illustrated, it contains not only every drink you would ever expect to make with tequila, including martinis, sangrias and a multitude of margaritas, but a collection of innovative recipes for appetizers, salsas, soups, main dishes and desserts. Outstanding selections include Gazpacho del Sol (a golden fruit version laced with tequila), !Ay Caramba! Coleslaw (Thai/Tex tequila coleslaw), Puerco Miel y Mostaza (pork tenderloin in tequila-honey-mustard), Pescado Margarita (fish margarita-style) and Hoppin' Jalapeño (jalapeño carrot cake with tequila-lime cream cheese frosting). Fanciful titles or not, this is serious cooking and delightful eating.
!Tequila! is a downright good read, thanks in no small part to the wealth of information about tequila, its cultural history, origins, how it is made, who makes it, and who makes it best. The author, Lucinda Hutson, a native of El Paso, is obviously well-acquainted with her subject.
