I always hesitate to review cookbooks or mark them as read, because I don't often read every word in a cookbook. I usually flip through all the recipes, to see if there's anything I can or want to eat, and then, if so, I read the rest of the book. If not, there's not much interest for me in the stories of how the author came about with the recipes. The Peached Tortilla is no exception. I got this as a freebie at a library conference--a beautiful hardcover (expen$ive) freebie, and while I ...more

Well, now I know where to eat in Austin.
Lots of good ideas in here, although the layout was a little hard to follow (lots of "see page [other]"). I enjoyed the memoir bits, and the photography is gorgeous. Everything you want in a chef-book.

PS to add: if you don't want to eat brisket, though, maybe find a different book.

I haven’t actually made any of the recipes yet, so it may be a bit premature to rate. I did actually read this cookbook though. Most of the time the chef’s bio is boring filler, but Silverstein’s was compelling. His food is “fusion” for a reason - it closely mimics his own multicultural heritage.

On to the recipes: So, I have the great pleasure of living in Austin and can eat at the actual Peached Tortilla restaurant or food trucks. There’s even a location at the airport. I want to try to make

I typically don’t log the cookbooks I read. But I actually read every word of this one. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Great balance of biography, cookbook, and Asian grocery primer. I’m not convinced you could find all of the ingredients in a rural area, like where I live. But it seems pretty accessible.

Skimmed through it but I was so impressed with the clear instructions, the make-ability aspect of the recipes I told my mom about it. She started writing things down then just went ahead and bought a copy for us.

The recipes sound tasty but too many require multiple steps using some obscure ingredients.
