Award winning food photography for the Taste of Tucson Cookbook by Jackie Alpers.
“Molletes are just these beautiful, open-faced Mexican sandwiches with slathered on ingredients on a roll with hot sauce on top and a fried egg,” Stevens says. “The recipe comes from Jackie Alpers’ new cookbook, Taste of Tucson. It was exciting to put something out there and showcase some of the work that writers like Jackie are doing during the pandemic.” – Ashlie Stevens for Forbes.com.
The Amazon Kindle version of Taste of Tucson: Sonoran-Style Recipes has been released and is already the #1 new release in American Southwest Cooking!
It has been an extremely challenging and emotionally charged time to release a cookbook, so I can’t stress enough how much it means to me that EatYourBooks circled around and gave Taste of Tucson some love.
Taste of Tucson news and press. Taste of Tucson: Sonoran Style Recipes Inspired by the Rich Culture of Southern Arizona by Jackie Alpers is featured in the article Five Arizona Cookbooks you should know. Link to full article included.
“We talk about Jackie’s belief that writing and photographing a cookbook is an inclusive process, along with her experiences as a full-time food photographer, and her ultimate desire to write her own cookbooks, which culminated in two books, one called Sprinkles: Recipes and Ideas for Rainbowlicious Desserts which explores the science of sprinkles (Sprinkology!), shares crafty methods for sprinkling, and offers a comprehensive guide to identifying and cooking with them and her most recent book published in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic – Taste of Tucson.”
I loved chatting with Andi Berlin about Taste of Tucson: Sonoran-Style Recipes for this wonderful article in the Arizona Daily Star. She included the recipe for menudo that Teresa’s Mosaic Cafe graciously gave me to include in the book. Read the full article.
