Mexico is experiencing a gastronomic revolution. A return to pre-Hispanic cooking techniques and current trends towards tapas-style eating are sweeping a wind of change through the country's food. From Michoacan to Mexico City, from Oaxaca to the Yucatan, Fiona Dunlop, author of the highly successful "New Tapas", has sought out the chefs and cooks at the forefront of Mexican cooking to discover the ingredients and techniques and recipes at the heart of this revolution. Here you will find new dishes as well as modern versions of classics. Chillies, seafood, chicken, pork, game, tortillas and tacos play a central role as do vegetarian dishes based on beans, tomatoes, avocados, squash, corn and sweet potatoes.
