5.0 out of 5 stars For true cooks and foodies, 17 Jun 2011
By 
This review is from: The Food of Spain (Hardcover)
For some reason there are a plethora of Spanish cooks books being published. Many of them offer the standard fare. However, if you truly want the heart and soul of Spain on a plate, then this is the book for you. There are of course many simple and easy to cook recipes, but I am absolutely fed up with the quick and simple approach offered up by the likes of the delectable Nigella, to get us all cooking. I want complex, time consuming journeys of culinary delight, and Claudia's book offers this up...big time. To say I love this book is an under-statement it is really a journey into the Spanish kitchen. she is a cook who loves and understands food. The culinary story of Spain is here and is a great read for those who want to understand the food they are cooking, Claudia takes you to the root of the recipes. The food is sublime! Am I going to be watching Rick Stein, of course I am, but I am going to be cooking Claudia Roden.

This book has been available since June 2011. I thought it a very helpful review and found the above comment pointless. Things are not always what they seem.
