About this deal

There are no starters but a few 'big bites' (including a cheeseburger with candied bacon and jalapeño), a few sides, and a single pudding in the form of ancho chilli ice cream sundae. As is common with these kinds of books today, it begins with a (very) short history of the restaurant which in this case if pretty laughable; the book coming less than two years after the restaurant first opened. There is the same amount of rice as there is cheese in that recipe in the book, which is really just too much. After travelling to Mexico and California, they made up a menu for their restaurant and eventually made this book of all of the stuff that they cook there.

Death by Burrito isn’t the best cookbook – it’s actually one of the more confusing books we actually own. Flipping back and forth becomes a constant while cooking, as you try to make little side dishes that go inside the dish you are creating or typing. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. We don’t understand how this complex recipe came to be for such a simple dish, but it did taste good in the end. The chicken itself was just like chicken and gravy – which is an interesting filling, but we felt the recipe was intense for what ended up being chicken and gravy inside tortillas.A far cry from the Tex-Mex style of Mexican fast food, where cheese and mince dominate, the dishes in Death by Burrito put taste first - the truly exceptional range of starters, main meals and sides prioritises fresh, vibrant flavours: Smoked Beef Short Rib Mole Tacos, Deconstructed Guacamole with Blue Corn Tortillas and Crab Cakes also look stunning on the plate.

Midway through recipes, it instructs you to go to different pages and make something else, which is pretty challenging when trying to time out food or follow the recipe. Quick, fusion-type tortilla recipes, meanwhile, abound in more popular cookbooks so it's hard to see how anyone who isn't a big fan of the restaurant could gain much from this.This book explains everything from making your own tortillas till the finished burrito and much more.

Don't get me wrong; it's not a bad cookbook, but you would be much better off picking one up written for a US audience by someone either on the Southern side of Texas or someone who's taken up residence on the northern side.

It wasn't until I was half-way into the recipes that I went back and read the foreword which explained a lot.
