Book Description

7 July 2011

Barrafina brings you brilliant tapas-style recipes from Sam and Eddie Hart and Nieves Barragan Mohacho, creators of the best Spanish restaurants in London

When Sam and Eddie Hart opened Barrafina, their no-reservations tapas bar and restaurant in London's Soho, they had no idea how successful it would be. Four years on and it is always packed, always stylish, always lively.

And so is the food: together with their Basque-born head chef Nieves Barragan Mohacho, the Harts are cooking the best Spanish food in London today. In this cookbook they share their secrets and recipes: this is not difficult, fancy restaurant food, but gutsy, fresh, sometimes delicate, sometimes hearty food, that a home cook will be able to prepare easily.

First, there is food to eat with your hands: fried pimientos de Padron, salt cod fritters and delicias, the Spanish equivalent of Devils on Horseback. Then cold meats; on to fish and shellfish - from simple razor clams on the grill, to more sophisticated dishes such as turbot with cavolo nero; rice dishes and paellas; big dishes of roast and braised meat - from suckling pig for a special occasion to rabbit stew or roast cumin-rubbed pork with quince sauce; and desserts in the form of chocolate and almond tarts, cakes and the classic Crema Catalana. There is everything here to help you recreate great Spanish food at home.

With over 120 recipes, Nieves, Sam and Eddie will whisk you through step-by-step instructions, showing you everything, from how to make the more difficult things, such as arrocina beans with chorizo, morcilla and pork belly, to how to cook a simple but perfect tortilla.

'Possibly the best Spanish cookbook ever' Rachel Cooke, Observer Food Monthly

'Barrafina! A joy! Nieves's food and Sam and Eddie's charm: now with this splendid book you can do it at home' Fergus Henderson

'Barrafina is a tapas bar and the best of its kind . . . the food is fantastic' Giles Coren, The Times

Sam and Eddie Hart are the owners of three London restaurants - their first, Fino, opened in 2003, followed by Barrafina in 2007, and in 2008 they relaunched Quo Vadis, a restaurant and private member's club in Soho. Nieves Barragan Mohacho is Executive Head Chef of Barrafina and Fino.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really nice book 3 Sep 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book on the strength of a newspaper article which mentioned in passing that this was the best Spanish cookbook there was. It's a very nicely presented book, perfect for getting inspiration and has useful advice on Spanish ingredients. Being a restaurant tie-in it is not comprehensive (not like eg the Silver Spoon book on Italian cookery) but certainly has enough ideas to get you (or at any rate, me) started.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great variety of amazing recipes 3 Oct 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Really good book, with lots of recipes that you actually want to cook, rather than pages that look nice but are over complicated.

Great restaurant, great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Real Spanish Cuisine at home 16 Dec 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
In this publication the chef shares her recipes & tips thus making this easy to produce non fancy restaurant food, at times gutsy, sometimes fresh, sometimes delicate, other times hearty food, that the home cook would be able to prepare with simplicity.
When or if you are fortunate enough to eat at this establishment you will nearly always see some London's or even the UK's best chefs enjoying the ambience and fantastic food on offer,so its no mean feet of where this restaurant sits in the current food scene .
Here is a small insight into the publication:
First, category is finger food: fried peppers de Padron, salt cod fritters and delicias, the Spanish Devils on Horseback. Then cold Then meats; followed by fish then shellfish - from simple razor clams on the grill, to more sophisticated dishes such as turbot with cavolo nero; followed by fantastic rice dishes and paellas; fantastic big dishes of roast and braised meat - from suckling pig for a special occasion to rabbit stew or roast cumin-rubbed pork with quince sauce or the simple Pistou and duck eggs wow.... to finish desserts like: chocolate and almond tart,Rhubarb salad, cakes and the classic Crema Catalana. There is everything here to help you recreate great Spanish food at home.
With over 120 recipes, Nieves (head Chef), Sam and Eddie (restaurant owners & quo Vadis and Fino aswell) will whisk you through step-by-step instructions, showing you everything, from how to make the more difficult things, such as arrocina beans with chorizo, morcilla and pork belly, to how to cook a simple but perfect tortilla.
Its a great book for anybody who loves Spanish cuisine Enjoy

3.0 out of 5 stars It's OK but not the best 2 Dec 2013
By C.D.
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Having read the other reviews I was disappointed with this book. Yes there are some good, easy to follow recipes and nice photographs but overall I just didn't feel that this was the best Spanish cookbook I had ever seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book, great recipes 19 Nov 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book after my partner and I visited Barrafina and loved it. Because he's a chef, the waitress mentioned their book and let us have a look through it while we were eating. After having an amazing night and admiring the book I decided to buy it. Was definitely not disappointed - it's packed with information and great recipes that you'll recognize from the menu if you've eaten there, and I think they did a really good job of capturing the vibe of the restaurant in the way that it's written. And the best thing is, the recipes are totally achievable for the average person and will definitely inspire - I'm really liking the way they've got a sauces section, as it's so important and often brushed over in other books. Their list of suppliers for the less common ingredients is also really useful as long as you live in the UK. Definitely recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars decent addition to your book shelf 14 Jan 2014
Format:Hardcover
I'd been searching for a Spanish cook book for a while and seeing the glowing reviews on here prompted me to purchase this one. Some of the ingredients are difficult to source if you don't live near a decent deli or food market but there are enough recipes featuring easy to find ingredients to make it a worthwhile purchase. Not as great as some have suggested, at least in my opinion, but a useful addition to your cook book collection.
