About the Author


Edson Diaz-Fuentes was born and raised in Mexico City and lived in New York, London and Oaxaca City. There he spent time in the kitchen of Alejandro Ruiz, at Casa Oaxaca, learning about the diversity of some of Mexico's most treasured ingredients and its slow food cooking techniques. What started off as an idea in New York and later a food stall in Shoreditch, East London, evolved into the critically acclaimed restaurant Santo Remedio in London.www.edsondiazfuentes.com

Praise For…


"Homey and doable recipes, along with vivid descriptions and photos of vibrant street scenes and enticing-looking dishes, make me want to cook up a fiesta — or better yet, book a flight to this culinary mecca for the full sensory experience.” - Atlanta Journal Constitution,


"Everything about chef Edson Diaz-Fuentes' London restaurant, Santo Remedio, conveys the color and flavor of Mexican cuisine-from the artwork to the design to the food itself. Fuentes' gorgeous cookbook serves a similar purpose, taking readers on a journey through the ingredients, traditions, and recipes he grew up with."
