Product Description

About the Author

John Radford has tasted wines from all 63 DO zones, visiting over 50 of them in the process. An award-winning journalist, Radford was made a member of the Gran Orden de Caballeros del Vino in 1996. These days, Radford splits his time between writing, broadcasting, and lecturing on wine. His book The New Spain won four international awards in 1999. The same year Mario Sandoval picked up his first Michelin star, he won the national Cooks Championship - at the age of 26. He studied in Madrid and Barcelona before revolutionizing the style and appeal of the family restaurant, Coque, just outside Madrid. Weekly columnist for Metro, he represented Spain at the Bocuse d'Or festival in Lyon, the world's top culinary contest, and has won many other accolades at home and further afield. His food style is very much modern Spanish.

Format: Hardcover
Although this book has some interesting recipes and combinations of ingredients,they fail abysmally when you try to actually make them. I have tried three of the recipes out and they haver either failed or I've realised in time that the amounts given are way off the mark.

One example is an Asturian rice pudding. I'm not sure what planet the writers live on where 75g of rice and 1 litre of milk will make anything other than a milky cream mixture with bits in it. The Star Anise jelly is also another worringly badly presented recipe. No No No. 1 teaspoon of powdered gelatine will not set a 500ml of water.

I've seen this book going cheap in a number of shops and now I know why. Don't buy it. Maybe get it out of the library like I did, get a few ideas from it and then take it back.
