5.0 out of 5 stars A treasure trove of tapas from all over Spain 15 Mar 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
A wonderful introduction to Spain's colourful and exciting "little dishes," this attractive cookbook provides the reader with an extensive range of tapas from many regions. The dishes described are as versatile as they are delicious, and although some are rather time-consuming, most are not complicated. A glossary of ingredients, shopping information, hints on techniques and utensils, tips for throwing your own tapas party, and carefully planned menus for a variety of occasions make this a very useful guide.
Also recommended: If you love tapas you will love mazzas, the "little dishes" of the eastern Mediterranean, a stunning selection of which is included in Sonia Uvezian's latest and greatest cookbook, "Recipes and Remembrances from an Eastern Mediterranean Kitchen." This extraordinary volume should be added to every food lover's "must" list!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Tapas" has been a staple in our house for years! 19 April 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Tapas are always a hit with guests. For parties, I usually choose a few tapas that can be make beforehand (ie, the maninated tapas) and then serve a couple of hot tapas that require last-minute preparation. Nothing could be easier! Favorite recipes include garlic shrimp, tortilla, those delicious bite-sized meatballls and marinated shrimp. I enthusiastically recommend this book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Complete and easy to use. 11 Sep 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I bought this book to do a "tapa party" for the our new years party. I have found the receipes easy to use with good results on the first attempt at dishes. The only complaint is that no recipe gives you a (starting) amount of salt and pepper. Each recipe is a guessing game and if you over salt, your dead. The book should give you a minimum to start with and then adjust as necessary.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the one� 15 April 2003
By Billy J Saunders Jr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've been looking for something like this for a long time. All recipe titles are displayed in English and Spanish. Ingredients and directions are displayed in English and converted over to the U.S. standards of measure. This is very helpful. If you have ever tried to convert a full recipe from metric to U.S. you know what trouble that can be. Recipes are very authentic of the Spanish Tapas I have ever had in my short 4 years of living in Madrid. Recipes are easy to follow and to understand. Includes helpful hints to make cooking and clean up a lot easer. For Example: The correct way to turn over a tortilla with out making a mess.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my "Must Have" Cookbooks 7 July 2004
By "bertieinmanila" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If I had to weed down my cookbook library to just 5 books this would be one of them. I have been visiting, living, working & eating in Spain for some 40 years and whenever I read this book it takes me back to tapas that I have eaten & the bars I have visited. The recipes are 100% authentic and mostly easy to make - the anecdotes about the sources of the recipes fascinating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious! A must! 16 Jan 2002
By L. Richmond - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have thoroughly enjoyed this book, with its sensual descriptions of ingredients and menus. Truly a taste of Spain here! I gave a chef/ friend a copy for Christmas; and for New Years' she whipped up a dreamy Tapas party that sent our whole group into the furthest reaches of epicurean bliss. Everything she served came from this book! These recipies are flawless.
