Review - The Food of Spain a Journey for Food Lovers

This is the biggest and most colourful cookery book on my shelf now. The large bright format is jammed with great photos that tempt me to try the recipes and to explore more of Spain as well.

The photos range from Spanish sights to instructional how-to ones with plenty of information and history about Spanish gastronomy.

A range of recipes from tapas to filling country stews, and tasty Scallops in a Cava Sauce to the not so palatable (and won´t be done by me) recipes like Tripe with Chickpeas.

Even for the non-cook the pages of this book will delight, it could almost be a coffee table book the imagery is so good. It´s also a Spanish lesson in food terms, all the recipes have a Spanish and English title, and it´s very descriptive of the different Spanish areas and alternative cooking techniques used in the various regions across the country.

It has a big thumbs up from me, a 4.5* out of 5.

This book has 296 pages, it was published in June 2008 with IBN no. 978-1741960358.
