Product description


What happens when Tex-Mex finds a home in Southern California? In Josef Centeno's new cookbook, Am?, the results are sunny and delicious, from a vegan, cashew-based queso built on the flavors of charred onion, garlic and green chile, to a simple halved ruby red grapefruit, broiled with a topping of butter and piloncillo sugar, just like his auntie used to do. - New York Times, A Best Fall Cookbook of 2019

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Tex-Mex cookbook ever !
By Rachel on 6 August 2020
Really enjoying AMA and have so many dishes I still want to try out. Picture of the ceviche and Cha Cha snapper which were two great dishes. I have quite a few tex-mex cookbooks but this is by far my favourite
