A very comprehemsive book, which also includes Spanish American terms. BUT there are inaccuracies, eg Morcón, described as a large black sausage. I can understand why it has been described as such, but it clearly indicates that the author is more of a linguist than knowledgeable about Spanish food. To write a book of this kind, you need to know the language AND be familiar with Spanish ingredients. Yes, a morcón is big, but not a black sausage.

Having purchased the French version of this very handy little book - and because we holiday mostly in Spain having driven through France - we decided to purchase the Spanish version. We haven't had the chance to use it yet but if it is as good as the other we will be delighted. Only downside is that we spend our time in Catalonia and they mostly don't speak Spanish!

This little booklet is ideal for eating out or food shopping in Spain. It seems very comprehensive and goes outside food and culinary terms which is helpful. I would have liked some descriptions, e.g., of cheeses and a bit of an English Spanish glossary but as these were not part of the product description I can't complain; also they would have increased the size of what is a very conveniently small, flat booklet.
