In a groundbreaking e-book, fiftysomething food blogger Don Miguel de Los Angeles no McDonalds sets out to walk from Los Angeles to San Francisco to find The Perfect Burrito. The tale is narrated by this latter-day Don Quixote's "Sancha:" sheltered, twentyish half Chicana Valley girl Maria Sanchez. Part California travelogue and part hilarious Don Quixote spoof, at the story's core is the emotional journey of Maria, a young woman caught between teenager and adult, American and Latina, and of her curious attachment to the white, Hispanic-wannabe Don Miguel. While the story is fictional, the California locations and the survey of the state's best burritos are delightfully, mouthwateringly real. The e-book tale is accompanied by a host of audiovisual extras to enhance the reader experience, and you can access them all here.
The Perfect Burrito e-book contains links to stunning photos, video, audio, and more, all created especially for the book. These extras are all accessible FREE from your desktop computer or favorite mobile device! Just click here.
