EDITED BY MARION TRUTTER    Book Number: 83441    Product format: Hardback

Much more than a mere cookbook, this enormous, colourful tome is a visual feast, packed not only with recipes, but with the sights of Spain. Stunning photographs abound, of snow-clad mountains, colourful Salzillo processions, almond trees north of Valencia, fertile plains near Tuleda, and deep blue sea lapping craggy cliffs in Catalonia. But it is the food which is the heart of the book, mouth-watering pictures of terrines, pastries, stews, tarts, soups, and paellas, interspersed with facts, anecdotes and traditions. Taste a sample of Barcelona's Boqueria, the art of Alioli, truffles, sweet confections, Cava and viticulture, in Cataluna, before we head of to the Balearics, Aragon, La Rioja and beyond on a Hispanic gastronomic tour. Read about the annual tomato battle of Bunol, the mysticism surrounding the orange, harvesting cork, picking saffron crocuses, the workings of Don Quixote's windmills, milling paprika and rice growing, the Iberian Pig, Olive oil. Almonds and fish in Spanish cuisine. For anyone who loves Spain, Spanish food, Spanish traditions, or just adores beautiful books, this impressive volume is one to treasure. 379pp. Colour illus. 8.5" x 10".
