I'm a big fan of Rick Stein's cookbooks- from having watched some of his programmes on TV it seems that he writes down recipes that he watches local people make, and that's what goes in the cookbook. Whilst you might therefore have to look a bit further afield to find some of the ingredients, the flavours are authentic, and totally amazing (and he lists stockists, online and high street, at the back of the book)

My husband and I bought this book to take with us on holiday to Spain, where most of the ingredients were readily available. Everything we made was, and has been, absolutely delicious and I would definitely recommend it.

Slightly digressing, but perhaps worth mentioning, is that Rick Stein's Far Eastern Odyssey cookbook is the most amazing cookbook we have ever used- a lot of effort generally to make the spice mixtures and stocks etc. but worth it for the incredible flavours. You will never want to eat takeaway food again!

As a long time Stein fan, and owner of a number of his books, I was not expecting any revelations. Over the years he has developed a great format to his cookery writing. Fantastic photography, simple recipes with easy to follow instructions , but more importantly an honest and interesting introduction to each dish.
What made this book stand out for me, was the excellent subject matter. Spain is a country blessed with a rich culinary tradition, often overlooked in this country in favour of the noisy Italians or the those loveable Frenchies, yet Stein more than does justice to their passion about food and reveals 140 of their best loved regional dishes.
Well done old chap, another belter!

For many years Rick Stein tried to break away from his hugely successful Padstow experiences and his seminal cookbook - "English Sea Food Cookery". Eventually, he settled on a national/regional approach covering all types of cookery. Stein follows the technique made famous by the very much-lamented Keith Floyd - visit a country and be filmed cooking local dishes for locals using their ingredients and recipes. I have long been an advocate of Spanish cookery, merging Moorish influences with the cuisine of Europe's most powerful civilisation for hundreds of years. If you've only ever been to coastal Spain, take a train to the interior and then you'll know what I mean. Even better, pick a region and do a walking holiday.

So, does Rick capture the richness of Spanish cuisine? In a word, barely. There are two reasons for this: first, pictures - there are too many. Then, there's the problem of regions. Spain (and Italy) are amalgamations of fiercely-independent former kingdoms, so the cuisines of both countries are developed most strongly on a regional basis. Encapsulating this regional diversity in a single book is nearly impossible. It can be done - witness Janet Mendel's brilliant "Cooking in Spain". On the other hand, Rick has a way with words, particularly with respect to food snobbery - "If you don't like offal, you're barking!" Amen to that! Typical recipes I have tried:- 'slow-cooked lamb with dried chilli, sun-dried tomatoes, roasted garlic and thyme' - heaven, 'cuttlefish with meatballs and peas' - meatballs!! - yes, but not as you know them, 'scrambled eggs with asparagus, wild mushrooms, and truffle oil' - like an omelette, but better. As you work your way through this book (which you will), you will notice some distinct similarities with classic French dishes.

I have just received this book today, an early birthday present we'll call it. Although I have only looked through the book thus far I can instantly see it will be a well used book, as all of his are in my house! Wonderfully evocative photography, his usual wit and inspiring wording jumping out from every page. His great format of giving a mini story of each dish, how and where he tried it etc, working it's usual charm and giving each dish, however small or grand, a sense of importance and theatre. With family in Spain, and having holidayed there several times, I have tried much regional Spanish cookery and can say that his representations are precise, untampered with and great to eat! Another Stein Gem to add to your collection. Or if you're a first time buyer of Ricks work I'll bet you'll be buying his other books in no time! Muchas gracias por todo Ricky!

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, the latest of Rick Steins collection and have tried a couple of recipes both of which were divine, and totally authentic. Ricks style is both engaging and informative and he gives the reader a true sense of the essence of Spanish cooking. Packed full of wonderful recipes and vibrant colourful photography this book will make a wonderful addition to any cooks recipe book library.

Wow. Only received this book last week and have already spent quite a few hours picking it up and reading stories and the wonderful recipes. I have around 6 Rick Stein's recipe books - from different parts of the world and also his older books. As always a beautiful read and extremely easy to follow recipes. It is so wonderfully written that It made me even feel as if I was in Spain. And have only got to less than a 1/4 of the book. Highly recommend but also recommend his mediteranian, italy and seafood odyssey. Excellent.
