I think this is an excellent book. It uses the 'vehicle' of food to gently but profoundly explore a complex and fascinating culture, one which is a mystery to most people. Food and cooking are obviously key cornerstones of the Basque people, which means that so much can be revealed about them by an exploration of this topic. Well-written and easy to read and absorb, a good translation too, which doesn't ever feel awkward - recommended.
