Omnivore Books on Food | 3885a Cesar Chavez Street, San Francisco, CA
In Planet Taco, Jeffrey Pilcher traces the historical origins and evolution of Mexico’s national cuisine, explores its incarnation as a Mexican American fast-food, shows how surfers became global pioneers of Mexican food, and how Corona beer conquered the world.
Pilcher is particularly enlightening on what the history of Mexican food reveals about the uneasy relationship between globalization and authenticity.
