Nuevo Latino never tasted as cool, hot, and delicious as it does in this sophisticated cookbook that explores in depth the popular South and Central American specialty of fish and seafood marinated in citrus, herbs, and spices. Argentine chef Guillermo Pernot presents fabulous recipes that make the most of both raw and cooked fish and shellfish, as well as fruits, vegetables, and even beef. Salads, salsas, croquetas, chips, and other savory accompaniments from Pernot's acclaimed restaurant Pasion! -- which John Mariani, food and travel correspondent for "Esquire," called "perhaps the best exemplar of Nuevo Latino food in America" -- round out the savory mix. Recipes include Bahian Lobster Ceviche with Passion Fruit Mojo and Grilled Papaya Salad, Argentinian Beef Roll Ceviche, Spinach-Pine Nut Croquetas, Garlic Escabeche, Crispy Malanga Chips, Pineapple-Chile Pequin Salsa, plus sexy Latin cocktails such as Papi Sour, Rum Negroni, Mango Daiquiri, and Caipirinha Pasion!
