About the Author

Elisabeth Luard brought up her children in Andalusia and spent several years of her own childhood in Spain, and her time there have given her a profound knowledge of, and abiding love for, the food and traditions of the Iberian Peninsula. She has written countless acclaimed cookery books on Spanish cuisine and her previous title for Kyle Cathie, The Latin American Kitchen, won a 2002 Gourmand International Award for the best Latino cookbook published in English. She is a regular contributor to various magazines and newspapers, including Waitrose Food Illustrated and The Oldie.

Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
Behind the Spain of the tourist resorts, the sea and sand of the Mediterranean beaches, any observant visitor will be aware of older traditions, of hilltop villages shaded by Roman-planted olive trees, of a sea-horizon sparkling with the lights of wooden fishing boats night-trawling out of ancient ports whose jetties may have been thrown up by Phoenician sailors, of rice paddies watered by Moorish irrigation systems. Read the first page

This is a lovely book. I now have two copies - one paperback and one hardback. It is so much more than a cookbook - it is indeed, a 'Regional Celebration'. The photos are lovely and the descriptions of the regions and how the cuisine developed in each of them, make this a good read for anyone interested in food or regional cooking.
