Ciudad de Mexico: Recipes and Stories from the Heart of Mexico City by Edson Diaz-Fuentes (Hardie Grant, £26)‘I have been a serious eater, or, as you would say in Mexico, a tragón, since the age of five,’ writes Edson Diaz-Fuentes. A childhood fascination that began at a street stall in Acapulco, watching the chef roll corn dough for the tortilla press between her hands, took him on a professional journey via New York to London where he opened Santo Remedio, a restaurant inspired by the taquerias, markets, homes and celebrations of Mexico. These recipes are profoundly Mexican in feel and flavour, infused with a very current take on upmarket street food. Here you’ll find a breakfast of French toast with bacon, agave and cacao nibs, a stomach-bending snack of queso fundido (melted cheese) with tacos, and a supper of smoky roasted cauliflower with pipián blanco (roasted nut sauce). It’s all threaded together with reportage photographs that evoke the throbbing heartbeat of one of the world’s greatest cities.
