CDMX: The Food of Mexico City

By Books

Mexican recipes from one of the world's most vibrant cities

CDMX is the follow-up cookbook to Comida Mexicana by Rosa Cienfuegos. It is a celebration of the food of Mexico City and the dishes that Rosa grew up eating and now recreates in her two Sydney restaurants: Tamaleria and Icatate. It is the food that chilangos (residents of Mexico City) enjoy at home, on the streets, in markets, and in cafes and bars. Authentic and often unique to Ciudad de M xico, as the locals call it, CDMX's colorful recipes reflect the vibrancy, history, and modern urban life of Mexico's liveliest city.

Filled with stunning food photography and on-the-scene shots of Mexico City, this is more than a cookbook. In addition to the unique dishes found only in the capital, CDMX is also where the country's regional cuisines come together, giving you the opportunity to eat your way through Mexico without ever having to leave the city. CDMX is the Mexico City guide for those who crave authenticity and who strive to accurately recreate their favorite food memories or head straight to the source, visiting Rosa's recommended bars, restaurants, street eats, and markets.

About the Author:

Rosa Cienfuegos was born in Azcapotzalco, a suburb of Mexico City. She grew up surrounded by friends and family in this vibrant suburb before eventually relocating to Sydney, Australia, to be close to her father. Once in Sydney, Rosa missed the food of her home country and began importing Mexican ingredients as a small business. This ignited the local Mexican community in Sydney, which encouraged Rosa to open her tamaleria and sell the street-food dishes she loved most in Mexico.

Fast-forward several years and Rosa’s second restaurant, and deli, Icatate, opened in popular Redfern, extending Rosa’s food offerings and authentic ingredients from Mexico City. She regularly returns to Mexico to gain more knowledge and insight into her beloved cuisine. CDMX is Rosa’s second cookbook.
