5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and very practical book 19 Aug 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is certainly the most authentic book of Tapas recipes I have seen, and given that some of the ingredients will be difficult to source outside of specialist shops or the internet, the recipes are clear and easy to follow, and the results, so far, surprisingly good!

Although tapas is a way of eating rather than a specific type of food, this book is very good at showing you the typical kinds of tapas you might eat in Spain, and what kind of foods lend themselves to tapas.

I'd say this is the best single book I've found on tapas, plus the Phaidon design means it's a pleasure to read and look at too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice but boring 26 Nov 2010
By Ruthie
Straight forward recipes, not rocket science. didn't like the yellow pages. would have preferred if pictures were with the recipes and not seperated into a diferent section. Expected something a little more exciting.
