Adriana Cavita grew up in a small village in Mexico and was inspired to enter the food industry by her grandmother who ran a street-food business. She has since travelled extensively around the country, from Mexico City the capital (where she was born), across to Oaxaca and the Yucatán. This collection of recipes is built around her experiences, from breathing in the aroma of woodsmoke from a barbacoa (food cooked over open flames), to seeing first-hand the care that goes into preparing seemingly simple dishes, from salsas and moles to tortillas and tostadas.
