Tip of Stefano:

Southwestern style: American Tex-Mex cuisine is packed with flavour

The style of cooking in the Southwestern United States is a cuisine in its own right. It’s very popular on the West Coast, particularly in California. It contains many recipes with roots in Spanish and Mexican cuisine. Ingredients, sauces and marinades use a wide variety of flavours and spices. There’s a lot of diversity in the ingredients used in Southwestern cuisine.

Tex-Mex cuisine and liquid smoke

This cuisine contains many meat-heavy recipes, but it is best known for its use of many spices, particularly chilli. Chillies of every colour are used. Tex-Mex cuisine, which is big in Texas, is a subset of the larger Southwestern style of cooking. In this recipe for a sauce or marinade, we use lots of spices, combined with maple syrup and coconut blossom sugar to sweeten. When liquid smoke is added, it gives it a mild smoky flavour, perfect for the barbecue! Use this marinade on seitan, and in no time at all you’ll have delicious vegan spare ribs, Tex-Mex style!

At the age of 33 he was going with all guns blazing, but he didn't spare a thought for his own health - he smoked, drank a lot, worked up to 16 hours a day and drank around two litres of coffee daily. Then he developed two serious hernias, as well as being very overweight. He realised that he could not continue this way and decided on a complete turnaround. He quit drinking and smoking and slowly changed his diet, until he finally went almost completely vegan.Vegan, a step further than vegetarian Stefano's recipes are all vegan.
