Eat Mexico is a love letter to the intricate cuisine of Mexico City, written by a young journalist who lived and ate there for four years. It showcases food from the city's streets: the football-shaped, bean-stuffed corn tlacoyo, topped with cactus and salsa; the tortas bulging with turkey confit and a peppery herb called pápalo; the beer-braised rabbit, slow-cooked until tender.

The book ends on a personal note, with a chapter highlighting the creative, Mexican-inspired dishes such as roasted poblano oatmeal that Lesley cooks at home in New York with ingredients she discovered in Mexico. Ambitious cooks and armchair travelers alike will enjoy Lesley's Eat Mexico.
