The Spanish Kitchen: Regional Ingredients, Recipes, and Stories from Spain

Overview

"There are many common threads within the cooking of Spain, from rice to oranges, and Spanish home cooking throughout the Peninsula is simple, uncomplicated, and direct. The flavors of fresh, local ingredients need no disguise or affectation. Yet, for both historical and geographical reasons, the sense of regional identity and separatism remains strong in the many provinces of Spain, and this is also proudly reflected in the cooking."

Overview

"There are many common threads within the cooking of Spain, from rice to oranges, and Spanish home cooking throughout the Peninsula is simple, uncomplicated, and direct. The flavors of fresh, local ingredients need no disguise or affectation. Yet, for both historical and geographical reasons, the sense of regional identity and separatism remains strong in the many provinces of Spain, and this is also proudly reflected in the cooking." "The book is divided into 17 chapters, each highlighting an ingredient from a particular region of Spain. Each chapter tells the story of an ingredient in terms of culture, history, cultivation, traditions, location, and context. A selection of recipes using the ingredient then follows, illustrating the Spanish pride in quality regional products and their determination to safeguard their unique Iberian culinary heritage." Illustrated with photographs of Spain's diverse regions and recipes, this latest book from Clarissa Hyman celebrates the flavor of Spanish life and food.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Part cookbook, part travelogue and part history lesson-albeit an engaging one-this volume offers an epicure's tour of Spain, with recipes. It's divided into chapters by region, each focusing on a specific ingredient (or two) that is a source of local pride and providing a brief, food-oriented history. In the chapter on Castile-Madrid, for example, Chinch n garlic is the ingredient of choice, and recipes include Garlic and Chile Shrimp, and Spicy Monkfish with Saffron and Chilies. Other chapters go from savory to sweet, as in the La Rioja chapter, which features pears in Duck Breast with Honey-Spiced Pears, Pears Poached in Moscatel and Spices, and Rioja Pear Cake. The Valencia chapter showcases oranges in Toasted Bread with Garlic and Orange, Hake in Orange and Saffron Sauce, and Delicias (an almond and chocolate confection). Recipes are generally simple and often rustic; there just aren't enough of them (only 75). The color photos by Peter Cassidy are honest; they don't try too hard to make things look modern or slick when they simply are not. Together with the text, they provide an authentic look into Spanish cuisine and the areas where it is prepared. (Aug.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
British author and 2002 Glenfiddich Food Writer of the Year, Hyman explores the varied regions and ingredients of Spain in her third book. Similar in format to her previous work, Cucina Siciliana, this book is divided into chapters, each dedicated to one of the 17 regions of Spain, complete with histories, stories, and recipes. Highlighting foods and spices such as sobrassada, pimenton de la Vera, and bonito del norte, the narrative and 75 recipes illustrate how interaction with many cultures over the centuries has affected Spanish cuisine. While this is a lively introduction to the regional diversity of Spanish food, it may be intimidating for beginning cooks. Most of the recipes rely on using a unique ingredient not readily found in most supermarkets (although some substitutions are suggested, no source list is given), and cooking times and temperatures are not consistently provided. Penelope Casas's Delicioso! and Tapas have more detailed instructions, and for a more exhaustive survey Janet Mendel's My Kitchen in Spain has over 200 recipes. Recommended for public libraries with larger collections.-Kimberly Bartosz, Univ. of Wisconsin-Parkside, Kenosha Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
