About the Author

Esteban Castillo is a PR/Digital Marketing professional and the creator of Chicano Eats, a blog that showcases fun and exciting dishes that take influences and ingredients of traditional Mexican food combined with concepts and flavors from his life in California. He is the Reader's Choice winner of the 2017 Saveur Blog Awards for Best New Voice, and Chicano Eats has been featured in Food52, NPR's the Salt, Instagram, Remezcla, and We Are Mitú, among others.


"Castillo's prose is straightforward as he reflects on family traditions, memories in the kitchen, and cultural tidbits, as in the recipe for café de olla, which is a 'coffee that is traditionally made in an olla de barro (clay pot) with aromatics like cinnamon, orange peel, and cloves.' This is perfect for home bakers looking to broaden their palates." -- Publishers Weekly

"In his first book, Chicano Eats, celebrated food blogger Esteban Castillo shared recipes collected from his Mexican heritage and California upbringing. He returns with 100 new recipes for cakes, sweet breads, beverages, and more. Inviting instructions and colorful photographs accompany churro cheesecake, strawberry guava shortbread bars, and a few savory additions." -- Epicurious

"I was giddy when I saw that the blogger and author of Chicano Eats was working on a baking book. Sometimes prayers are answered. Esteban covers Conchas; Sweet pecan loaf; Mexican wedding cookies; Pan de Muerto; and Horchata tiramisu along with countless other breads, muffins, cookies and cakes. Measurements in weight and volume." -- Eat Your Books
