Book Description

1 Nov 2006
Now available in paperback, Janet Mendel's classic work includes 270 recipes for traditional Spanish dishes from Andalusian red garlic fish soup to Catalan chicken, Asturias stuffed sardines and Galician fish stew to Castilian roast baby lamb and shepherds' stew from La Mancha. Her inspired introductions set the food in the context of a land situated on the crossroads of civilizations, and where the food is a true melting pot of many cultures.

Product Description

Review

One of my favourite books ... it is such an inspirational book, with a good recipe on almost every page. (Simon Hopkinson Independent)

You know how it is with some cookery books - you take one look at the ingredients and you lose the will to live. You don't need to worry about that with this outstanding volume. One receipe has just three lines. Brilliant. Tasty too. (Birmingham Evening Mail)

This is country cooking at its best with marvellous combinations of flavour and texture, aroma and comfort. What could be better?... Traditional Spanish Cooking is a gem of a book full of delicious and sometimes surprising dishes. Great value for money. (www.mostlyfood.co.uk)

Mendel is an American who has lived in southern Spain for more than 30 years, immersing herself in the culture and cooking. This is an authoritative blend of both, with engaging asides on local history and culture that make it more than just a thorough compendium of enticing recipes. (Observer Food Monthly)

About the Author

5.0 out of 5 stars Real Spanish Cuisine 20 Jan 2011
By Leitov
Format:Paperback
Very good selection of real Spanish recipes. Something else than the classic "Mediterranean" cooking. Instructions are very easy to follow and motivate to cook something different, easy, tasty and good.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Books on Spanish Food by a Resident Expert 1 Sep 1999
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Sorry! I forgot to sign my review. Janet Mendel has lived in Spain for many years and has written a food column for Spain's English-language magazine, Lookout, for more than 25 years. During that time, she has collected hundreds of authentic recipes. Whenever I write articles on Spanish food, I almost almost consult Mendel's book to verify facts, check how dishes are actually made Spain, quantities, style, etc. Janet Mendel is the real thing and such a bona fide authority on Spanish cooking that top cookbook authors and Mediterranean food authorities such as Paula Wolfert often consult her. Until recently, here books were only available in Europe. How wonderful it is that they are now available in the US. ¡Ole!
