Fifteen years after opening his now-legendary Mexico City restaurant, Pujol, and one year since making his American debut with New York's Cosme, Mexican chef Enrique Olvera has written his first cookbook in English. Most of the multicomponent, professional-level recipes are from Pujol, including its signature play on Mexican street corn (Baby Corn with Chicatana Ant, Coffee and Chile Costeño Mayonnaise). The second half of the book is for the rest of us and features more accessible dishes, including tostadas and chilaquiles. And for anyone who doesn't know what it means to nixtamalize, Olvera includes thorough breakdowns of ingredients, equipment and techniques.
