Jose Andres
On Seasonal Spanish Food:
"Without a doubt one of the best, true Spanish cookbooks ever written. Throughout the book you will find recipes and stories that make you wish you were there." —Jose Andres
Food 52, 5/29/13 - Kristen Miglore
The season of relaxed entertaining is upon us, and it's time to let go of your favorite crostini recipe. And so we bring you a flashy new appetizer — one that will kick off a party with heart-thumping flavors, invite ice-breaking questions (are those fossils? how do I eat them?), and break down any notions of proper etiquette (spoiler: everyone's fingers are going to get salty — no frilly toothpicks allowed!). It comes from José Pizarro's Spanish Flavors, a handsome book on the cuisines of five regions of Spain. As Food52er shovel2spoon explained to me, "This recipe transforms plain boiled potatoes into a tapas quality dish."
Library Journal
Spanish chef Pizarro owns two London restaurants and has contributed to several notable cookbooks, including The Book of Tapas. His latest, a travelog filled with attractive, scene-setting photographs, contains 125 recipes inspired by Spain's diverse regions. Dishes like Almond Bizcocho with Caramel Oranges and Chickpea Soup with Seared Shrimp, Chorizo, and Paprika Oil are familiar, but not strictly traditional. Pizarro brings freshness to these rustic yet refined recipes, and he balances sure crowd-pleasers (e.g., croquettes and meatballs) with more adventurous offerings, such as lambs' brains. VERDICT Proficient home cooks who aren't averse to a little prep (e.g., cleaning squid) will find these recipes richly rewarding.
