Book Summary

For 50 years, the taco has been a staple of American life. It's in school lunches and Michelin-star restaurants; it even helped launch the food truck craze. So how did the taco come to loom so large in American bellies? Gustavo Arellano explains our love of all things folded into a tortilla.
