Winner of the Gourmand Award in the Street Food category (US) and the People Cuisine category (US). "The recipes are outrageously good. I'm talking post-it-on-your-Instagram-stories good. I'm talking not-even-mad-that-the-noodles-took-two-hours good." --Austin Chronicle "This is a solid debut from an eclectic chef."--Publisher's Weekly "[The] refreshingly gracious tone, the creative recipes, and the personal introductions combine to make this an outstanding book." --Foreword Reviews Eric Silverstein's background in Asian food culture as a child in Japan, and, later, his immersion in Southern and Southwestern cuisine, informs his cooking at his restaurant, The Peached Tortilla, in Austin, Texas. The 100 flavor-packed recipes here include many of The Peached Tortilla's most-beloved dishes, like the Banh Mi Taco, JapaJam Burger, and Bacon Jam Fries, which gained rabid fandom when Silverstein first served them out of his famed Austin-based food truck. Other crowd-pleasing favorites range from crispy Umami Fried Chicken and Korean Short Rib Pappardelle with Smoked Crème Fraîche to Asian Pear Miso Salad and Roasted Cauliflower with Nori Brown Butter. This is Asian fusion at its best, delivering soul-satisfying comfort food with a kick!
