Description: Spain has produced some of the world's most famous dishes - paella, tortilla, and gazpacho are just three examples. However, there is a very rich cuisine, full of delights, that remains unfamiliar to many people. In Spanish Cooking, Pepita Aris taps this culinary wealth, covering the country region by region and selecting some of the finest recipes from each.
Spain may conjure up images of sun, sea, and sangria, but it is in fact a land of great geographical and cultural contrast, and this gives the cooking from each region a unique character and flavor. There are nourishing winter dishes from the mountains (like the substantial bean and sausage pot from Asturias), delicious fish recipes from the northern coast, distinctive tastes (such as bacalao - salt cod - from the Basque country), and simple treats (like garlic and bread soup from Extremadura).
This culinary tour is accompanied by an introduction explaining the fascinating history of Spanish cookery and its many diverse influences - Jewish, Arabic, and European. The book is illustrated throughout with photographs of the recipes themselves and of the life and landscape of Spain.
