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!
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!
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.Read more ›
