Tacos may have been created south of the border, but Americans have made this Mexican food their own, with each style reflective of a time and a place. American Tacos explores them all, taking us on a detailed and delicious journey through the evolution of this dish.
The world’s first Taco Editor, José R. Ralat traveled from coast to coast and border to border, visiting thirty-eight cities across the country. Throughout his expedition, he tells the story of how each style of taco came to be, creating a rich look at the diverse taco landscape in the U.S. Featuring interviews with taqueros and details on taco paraphernalia and the trappings of taco culture, American Tacos is a book no taco fan will want to take a bite without.
