The next best thing to a trip to the Yucatán.

Hartwood, a restaurant on Mexico’s coast where all produce comes from the surrounding farms and forests, all fish is spear-caught, and all dishes are prepared over open fire in a handmade wood-burning oven and grill, sounds too idyllic to be real. But with this book, we have proof!—in the form of recipes like Roast Chicken with Poblanos and Tomatillos, Rib Eye with Pepita-Lime Butter, and Grapefruit, Mezcal and Burnt Honey Cake, and larger-than-life photos by Gentl & Hyers. Even if you can’t get your hands on epazote, nopales, or wahoo filets, you’ll have no problem letting the book transport you to the jungle. We’ll give it a month before you book your flight.
