Format: Hardcover
There are some great, no nonsense recipes for some
great, no nonsense dishes here: Lamb with Red Peppers;
Chicken with Garlic; White Beans with Clams; Almond
Tart...
But this is a book to be read as much as cooked from.
Rohan Daft writes with a light, playful touch - what
you might expect from a former gossip columnist - and
is an entertaining storyteller.
Atun Encebollado (Tuna with Sweet Onions) '...comes
from Spain's windsurfing capital of Tarifa, a place
where the people have attracted an undeserved
reputation for speaking to themselves'.
Sopa castellana (garlic soup with ham) '...comes from
the central, upstanding regions of Castile-Leon and
Castile-La Mancha, where, on once enquiring in a
restaurant "What is sopa castellana?" a friend met
with the simple amswer, "Honest."'
This is a wonderful book and highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent little book which captures the essence of Spanish cooking. I have tried many of the recipes and none of them disappoint. I live in Spain and the menu del dia is a way of life here and the variety is endless. The standard recipes are all given a unique twist by the individual chefs but the basics remain the same.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Great things come in small packages and this exciting little book from someone who has a wide experience of and obviously appreciates Spanish culture and cuisine is no exception, making one want to prepare each recipe straight after reading it. The wonderfully varied and very tasty recipes are well presented, easy to follow and therefore made simple to prepare. So far I have prepared many, never yet having been disappointed. The author whets the appetite with description, encourages us to follow easy and well laid out instructions and then dares us to deviate and develop our own style. Most of the recipes are quick to assemble and even those that are more complicated are explained so well that they become easily achievable. Each recipe has a story explaining the history and culture behind it; often presenting alternative options for both preparation and ingredients, offering an opportunity to expand and experiment. The book describes a Spanish cuisine far from the the tourist traps and in doing so provides insight to Spanish culinary culture. Useful and interesting reference material about the ingredients such as regional differences, local varieties and seasonal availability is provided in abundance as is how these factors define local cuisines. The what, when, why, where and how of each recipe and it's components are described in a manner so prosaic, educational and easy to understand that it makes the book an enjoyable read as much as an instruction manual outlining how to prepare a considered collection of classic recipes. I have many recipe books for Spanish food; this is without doubt the best so far and as a by product also acts as a very handy restaurant guide.

More than a cookery book, more a journey through Spain. This is truly a good read as well as providing many wonderful recipes. The author obviously has a passion for Spain as, indeed, for cooking. Thoroughly recommend!
