Description: Tia Victoria's Spanish Kitchen is a book with a reputation, a leading best-seller in Spain. It is a book of authentic Spanish home cooking, with a traditional flavor which the translator (a member of the compiler's own family) has in every way maintained; though all ingredients are, of course, available here and it has been thoroughly adapted for British requirements.
There are dishes for every meal, and comprehensive sections ranging from hors d'oeuvres to delicious sweets and cakes, jams, fruits in syrup and ice creams. All the best-known specialties are included, like the famous cold soup: Gazpacho, Spanish omelets or Tortillas, Spanish Rice, Paella Valenciana and other paellas, shellfish dishes and many regional specialties; and there are also literally dozens of new ideas both for exciting, unfamiliar flavors and ingredients, and creative blending of everyday foods.
If you have never tried Spanish cooking (perhaps not yet tasted it), don't say that it is something that any ordinary cook will do well to bypass.
All the recipes in this book are clearly and simply explained, and don't demand complicated skills or knowledge. Nor do they all depend on olive oil and garlic—though both, with the characteristic variety of sauces, are used according to taste to reveal the natural flavors of many ingredients and give richness to the food.
Notes on wines, and an historical and descriptive introduction, a glossary of terms and full index complete a cook book essential for all lovers of subtle, imaginative food.
Condition: Dust jacket in poor condition with several tears. There is a large ink stamp that says Bargain on the outside edges of the book pages (as seen when the book is closed). There is also a smaller stamp on the inside first page.
