Real Mexican Food

Benito's Hat aims to deliver everything that is exciting and fresh about Mexican food to the people of Britain, banishing old perceptions of heavy, greasy Tex Mex. From the beaches of Baja and Cancun to the mountains of the Sierra Madre, Mexico has an incredible variety of vibrant flavours to offer. All of this rich culinary culture has inspired Benito's Hat's delicious burritos, tacos, soups and salads. Benito's Hat founder, Ben Fordham, and his Mexican chef Felipe Fuentes Cruz have created a cookbook show-casing their favourite dishes from the restaurant, plus many more from Felipe's collection of authentic recipes. In this fabulous cookbook, you'll find Snacks &Starters; Soups & Salads; Main Courses; Side Dishes; Salsas; Desserts; and Drinks. Mouth-watering recipes include guacamole with homemade corn tortilla chips, Benito's Hat burritos with beef birria, pico de gallo and salsa brava, tacos with sautéed prawns, garlic and paprika, refried beans with chorizo, Mexican flan and plenty of margaritas and fruit juices. Felipe Fuentes Cruz was born in Puebla, Mexico and has worked in the US, Spain and now London. While working in a Mexican restaurant in 2006, he met Ben Fordham , who had fallen in love with real Mexican food when he lived in Texas. They had the same dream of bringing great Mexican food to London and in 2008, Benito's Hat was born.

Life Is What You Bake It

Life Is What You Bake It

Books

The first Black person to win The Great American Baking Show shares her story of personal growth and more than 100 delicious recipes. Popular baking personality and lawyer turned baker Vallery Lomas was ecstatic when she learned she won the third season of The Great American Baking Show. However, her win was never seen by the world--Vallery's season was pulled after just a few episodes when one of the judges became a focal point in a Me Too accusation. Rather than throwing in her whisk and lamenting all of the missed opportunities she hoped to receive (Book deal! Product endorsements! TV show!), she held her head high and hustled--which resulted in her getting press coverage everywhere from CNN to People magazine. Now, Vallery debuts her first baking book. With 100 recipes for everything from Apple Cider Fritters to Lemon-Honey Madeleines and Crawfish Hand Pies to her Grandma's Million Dollar Cake. Vallery shares heirloom family recipes from her native Louisiana, time spent in Paris, The Great American Baking Show, and of course sweets and breads inspired by her adopted hometown, New York City. Vallery's "when life gives you lemons, make lemon curd" philosophy will empower legions of bakers and fans to find their inner warrior and bake their best life.
