This is a cheerfully told story that gives a quick glimpse of the border-crossing culture of the era and due credit to the restaurant owner who respected and encouraged Anaya without diminishing the glory of Nacho’s creation. . . A lively food history piece, this also demonstrates the rich value of cross-cultural and cross-border commerce. End matter includes an afterword about Nacho and other key players, a note about the author’s research on a challengingly vague piece of history, and a bibliography and endnotes—and, of course, a recipe for nachos.
