NEW YORK TIMES AND LOS ANGELES TIMES BESTSELLER • JAMES BEARD AWARD WINNER • IACP AWARD WINNER • A highly personal love letter to the beauty and bounty of México in more than 100 transportive recipes, from the beloved food writer and host of the Babish Culinary Universe show Pruébalo on YouTube and Food52’s Sweet Heat
“This intimate look at a country’s cuisine has as much spice as it does soul.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
ONE OF THE BEST COOKBOOKS OF THE YEAR: Bon Appétit, NPR, The Boston Globe, Food & Wine, Vice, Delish, Epicurious, Library Journal

Join Rick Martínez on a once-in-a-lifetime culinary journey throughout México that begins in Mexico City and continues through 32 states, in 156 cities, and across 20,000 incredibly delicious miles. In Mi Cocina, Rick shares deeply personal recipes as he re-creates the dishes and specialties he tasted throughout his journey. Inspired by his travels, the recipes are based on his taste memories and experiences. True to his spirit and reflective of his deep connections with people and places, these dishes will revitalize your pantry and transform your cooking repertoire.
Highlighting the diversity, richness, and complexity of Mexican cuisine, he includes recipes like herb and cheese meatballs bathed in a smoky, spicy chipotle sauce from Oaxaca called Albóndigas en Chipotle; northern México’s grilled Carne Asada that he stuffs into a grilled quesadilla for full-on cheesy-meaty food euphoria; and tender sweet corn tamales packed with succulent shrimp, chiles, and roasted tomatoes from Sinaloa on the west coast. Rick’s poignant essays throughout lend context—both personal and cultural—to quilt together a story that is rich and beautiful, touching and insightful.

        Mole Coloradito and Tacos de Capeados, anyone? As Martinez is a former Bon App�tit food editor, a New York Times contributor, and host of the YouTube series "Pru�balo" and the Food52 video series "Sweet Heat," this first book is much anticipated.

        Starred review from March 7, 2022
        A 19-month culinary quest through Mexico results in this excellent recipe collection from erstwhile Bon Appétit editor Martínez, his debut. While he highlights the country’s most popular regional dishes, Martínez explains his recipes are guided, first, by his “own preferences”—which avoid labels of “authentic” (ones that, “as a public-facing cook in this industry,” he admits to being “complicit” in perpetuating), yet take a practical approach to ingredients. The native and hard-to-find chilhuacle amarillo chiles in Oaxacan mole, for instance, can be substituted with guajillos. Mexican basics such as tortillas, beans, and salsas are accompanied by a flavor-profile chart of dried chiles and helpful tips (to “coax a deep... and nutty flavor” out of arroz rojo, toast the rice until it’s “really browned”). Mexico City proved to be a melting pot of cuisines, and Martínez also shares recipes for the shawarma-like tacos Árabes he enjoyed in Puebla and a tamarind-infused sweet-and-sour shrimp stir-fry that nods to Chiapas’s Chinese immigrants. He also serves up an impassioned defense for cooking with lard (which is lower in saturated fat than butter) and cops to a favorite recipe: pollo al pastor, his chicken rendition of the classic pork dish. This intimate look at a country’s cuisine has as much spice as it does soul.

        After growing up in Austin, Texas, and graduating from culinary school, Mart�nez set off on a journey to visit every one of Mexico's 32 states to discover his roots. This road trip revealed for him the diversity of Mexican cuisine: rich pork carnitas from Mexico City, tlayudas (a sort of Mexican pizza) from Oaxaca, poc chuc (citrus-grilled pork) from the Yucat�n, roasted goat from Jalisco, steak tacos from Baja California. For the sweet tooth, champurrado spikes hot chocolate with masa, cinnamon, and brown sugar, preferably using chocolate from Tabasco. Mart�nez digs into the multicultural roots of Mexican cooking, and finds immigrants from Africa, China, the Middle East, and Canada all contributing new traditions to the native Mexican table. Mart�nez advocates lard as the best cooking fat to reproduce his recipes, but he suggests alternatives readily; in general, Mart�nez's ingredients will be easy for U.S. eaters to source. Dazzling photographs throughout feature Mart�nez and his beloved Labrador retriever, as well as colorful dishes brimming with savory foods.

        Starred review from April 1, 2022

        Discover regional Mexican cuisine with Mart�nez (a food writer contributing to the New York Times and Bon Appetit) who a few years ago moved from his Texas hometown to Mazatl�n, on Mexico's Pacific coast. Alongside practical recipes for home cooks, Mart�nez also makes a thorough study of the foodways of each of the seven regions of Mexican cuisine. The 14 salsa recipes that kick off the book are just the beginning; other useful features include make-ahead suggestions, menu pairings, and a primer on chili peppers. Readers will especially appreciate the travelogue of Mart�nez's road trip across Mexico, his reflections on authenticity and migration (his grandparents moved from northern Mexico to Texas in 1910), and his quest to bring his favorite fare to home cooks. It'll be hard to stay out of the kitchen after reading Mart�nez's delectable descriptions of dishes and ingredients, next to bright, seductive photography. VERDICT Mart�nez manages to marry pragmatic, genuine, and delicious recipes with a beautiful narrative about his journey of self-discovery; will quickly become a favorite on cookbook shelves.--Sarah Tansley
