In New Latin Flavors, award-winning chef Richard Sandoval offers more than 125 vibrantly seasoned Latin dishes, inspired by his popular restaurant fare but carefully streamlined for the home cook. Quesadillas, ceviches, arepas, and enchiladas are offered with Sandoval’s signature flair and bold flavors. The book also presents delectable cocktails featuring traditional Latin spirits that are beloved in the world of mixology—tequila, mescal, cachaca, rum, and pisco—and a variety of salsas, guacamoles, and other cocktail snacks. Whether the food is comfortingly familiar, like the Mahi-Mahi Tacos, or unexpected, like the Beef Tiradito with Wasabi Dressing, these recipes offer an exciting new vision of contemporary Latin cooking.
