Overview

Award-winning author Coleman Andrews explores a once undiscovered gem among Europe's great culinary traditions. The cooks of Catalonia use many of the same popular ingredients found in other Mediterranean cuisines, but they combine them in fresh and unexpectedly delicious ways. Try Paella Vallenciana, Tumbet (a Majorcan vegetable casserole), Canalons (the local spin on cannelloni), or the delightful Bunyols (fried pastries), to name just a few of the savory regional dishes. By learning their culinary secrets, you'll discover a fascinating history and culture of the Catalan people.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Much more than a cookbook, this impressive work is a guide to the history, culture, and cuisine of Spain's Catalonia. Background information is followed by sections on the sauces basic to Catalan cooking, raw ingredients, and recipes. Catalan cuisine is a mix of French and Spanish influences, the cooking of the seacoast and of the mountains; rustic and individualistic, it will be new to most. Strongly recommended. JS
