American Tacos: A History and Guide — Book by José Ralat

UT Press

$ 31.95
Regular price $ 31.95

I wholesaled 50 books and tipped out $8/book from this first 50 (total of $400) to Maria's Cafe on Nogalitos to help out through this crisis! We still have some of those books from the first 50, but I wanted to cut the check now and provide relief! I had the privilege of meeting José Ralat, "aka @TacoTrail," several years ago when I started following him online. José is one of the most knowledgeable people I know on the topic of tacos—he takes his research very seriously and travels all over the US and Mexico to get the best taco insights. Since knowing him, José has left his role as the food and drink editor of Cowboys and Indians magazine to become the first ever Taco Editor of Texas Monthly. And now, José is releasing a tome on tacos that has had its release date bumped up from April to now because of COVID-19. 

I can't think of any better thing to do while "social distancing" than reading this book that explores stories around one of San Antonio's favorite topic of tacos. I also partnered with José to create a Fiesta Medal to celebrate the release—that won't come in until a few weeks from now, but I figured since we are all holed up I would release this book now and ship the medal out when I get it in. You can purchase the book by itself, or pair it with a special Taco Trail medal that should ship out in the first part of April. 

  • American Tacos book by itself: $26.95 and ships out this weekend
  • American Tacos + Taco Trail medal: $31.95 (save $5!) the book will ship out this weekend and the Taco Trail medal (and any other items you order) will ship out when the Taco Trail medal comes towards the beginning of April! 

I was hoping to have José to come to San Antonio for a meet-and-great and autograph sessions for the book's original scheduled release on April 15th, but we are going to have to reschedule that in the future—I will keep you posted! Thanks for supporting this amazing author and journalist!
