I've got several books on Tapas and this one was recommended to me by my Spanish Tutor at college. He said it was the best book he had seen and he is Spanish so he knows what he is talking about. Lovely recipes, simple instructions, great photographs. Enjoy!

This is one of the best cookery books I have ever used. We recently had a Tapas party and I borrowed 7 books from our local library. We only used this one in the end because it was so good and I've now bought it.
The recipes are clearly written in the step-by-step method, often with complicated steps individually illustrated. There is a large clear photo of each completed dish. Many of the recipes have very helpful "Cook's Tips", such as letting you know what items can be pre-prepared.
There are a good number of vegetarian recipes, but our favourites were the Chorizo Puffs, Banderillas and Grilled Asparagus with Salt-cured Ham.

Most of these recipes are easy to follow (being Tapas, they should be) and we've had a couple of great evenings showcasing our international cooking skills to friends!!

A useful addition to the collection of cookery books

Does as it says in the title. lots of delicious appetizers, finger food and easy meals - a recipe list would have been helpful as I also purchased a very similar book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Great Tapas! 17 May 2001
By Elena - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a fabulous cookbook. There are pictures of every dish, even pictures of steps in the making of many dishes. Some wonderful choices are the asparagus wrapped in serrano ham, shrimp fried in sherry, spicy meatballs, a classic tortilla and even salt cod fritters. Everything is very authentic. Be prepared to put a bit of work into some of these recipes. It seems like some of these tapas are supposed to be made with leftovers that those who do not cook Spanish everyday would not have (e.g. paella croquettes). In any case, this is the best tapas book I've seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great party! 26 Sept. 2001
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a great book! I have been interested in spanish cooking and decided to take the plunge into buying a recipe book. This one was a hit! I immediately threw together a Margarita & Tapas party that included the cheese puffs, egg-fried ham sandwiches, banderillas, and chorizo puffs (to name a few) from the book.
The directions are easy to follow and the color photos are beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious! 14 Feb. 2002
By Eugene Khoo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After my 3 week trip to Spain and sampling almost every tapas bar in every town I went (Madrid, Toledo, Cordoba, Seville, Granada, etc), it's time to re-create a bit of Spain in my kitchen and the easy to follow recipes and mouth-watering photos are just the beginning...
