About this deal

Delicious modern recipes from Death by Burrito, the revolutionary Mexican eatery based at the Catch bar in the heart of Shoreditch, with a new branch recently opened in central London.

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. Death by Burrito is an interesting cookbook as it was written by a co-owner of a restaurant in Shoreditch who had never actually ran a restaurant or cooked professionally. Read more about the condition Very Good: A book that has been read and does not look new, but is in excellent condition. It wasn't until I was half-way into the recipes that I went back and read the foreword which explained a lot.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. If there's such a thing as Tex-Mex than I guess there must reasonably be such a thing as Californian-Mex. 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. Death by Burrito is run by the Rebel Dining Society, a creative catering company from east London, and some of the burrito and taco fillings are a lot more adventurous than the standard meat/rice/beans/guacamole combos – soy-braised pork with smoked kim-chi, lobster, quinoa with roasted vegetables.

To recreate the atmosphere of Death by Burrito at home, the perfect tequila cocktail is essential: the legendary Taqueria Toreador Slushy is sure to become a favourite.

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. If burritos and imaginative cocktails fill you with joy, a trip to Hoxton might be a very good idea. Delicious modern recipes from Death by Burrito, the revolutionary Mexican eatery which was based in the heart of East London.

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.The combination of the sweet pomegranate, creamy avocado and spicy chilli and garlic shrimp was the perfect appetizer. This book explains everything from making your own tortillas till the finished burrito and much more.
