Tequila : a traditional art of Mexico( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tequila, "that burning river in a small glass," is more than the fuel of intense conversations or reckless abandon. As the national drink of Mexico, it has remained an essential part of the country's complex history and culture, from the Spanish colonial period to the modern nation of filmmakers and novelists. And its varieties, whether made by huge manufacturers or tiny family enterprises, are nearly endless. Every tequila aficionado has a little-known brand to claim as far superior to the rest. Profusely illustrated with vintage and modern photographs, Tequila is a complete guide to all things tequila. Opening with a set of basic questions and answers ("What is tequila?" "What is the difference between tequila and mezcal?" "What does 100% agave mean?"), the book presents an A-Z consumer's guide with descriptions of scores of brands of tequila from the most common to the rarest, discussing and rating their quality and relating some of their history, and accompanied by photos of the tequila bottles and labels-themselves a Mexican art form.A section of tequila recipes includes everything from cocktails to main dishes to desserts. Essays on the history and culture of tequila range from descriptions of its manufacture, travels in the state of Jalisco, where nearly all tequila is made, and a look at tequila as a national icon, accompanied by wonderful stills from classic Mexican movies. Finally, there are poems and stories about tequila from some of Mexico's finest writers, including a previously unpublished short story by novelist Laura Esquivel, author of Like Water for Chocolate. Tequila is as complex a subject as wine or single-malt whiskey, and both beginners and experts will find this the most comprehensive and reliable guide available, full of information and sheer pleasures
