Description: In Mexico, bocaditos (or "little bites") are small, flavorful dishes that are enjoyed throughout the day. Alone, a bocadito is a tasty tidbit; two or three combined make a fun and informal meal; several served together create an evening fiesta with friends. In Bocaditos, acclaimed chef Reed Hearon offers over forty tempting recipes for these whimsical little dishes that evoke the vibrant spirit of Mexico.
From the smallest dishes, botanas, to the larger plates, antojitos, and the seafood specialties known as mariscos, the fabulous array of recipes in Bocaditos embodies the true creativity of Mexican cuisine. Get ready for Mexican food the way it's really prepared south of the border: Spicy Pumpkin Seeds, Sweet Corn Tamales, Shrimp and Avocado Enchiladitas, and Clams with Red Chile and Lime await you, as do spicy salsas, recados, and moles to dollop on your own favorite little bites for added zest. Exotic yet easy to prepare, bocaditos are as perfect for elegant cocktail parties as they are for late-night snacks.
Lavishly illustrated with full-color photographs, and complete with detailed information about authentic ingredients and simple techniques. Reed Hearon's Bocaditos is a warm and tempting invitation to satisfy any appetite, big or small, the Mexican way.
