Lonely Planet World Food: Spain

by Richard Sterling, Allison Jones




Open wide and sink your teeth into Lonely Planet's new World Food guides. Whether you're hungry for adventure, or a steaming bowl of Vietnamese pho, these guides will satisfy your every craving. Written in an entertaining and opinionated style, these are the definitive culinary guides to the world's major travel destinations. They are an indispensable reference for both adventurous cooks and travellers trying to eat their way through unfamiliar menus and markets. With tantalizing photography throughout, they are also a feast for the eyes.

The pocket-size World Food guides serve up heaping portions of information on everything to do with eating and drinking in a country. They cover the history and evolution of the cuisine, its staples and specialties, and the kitchen philosophy of the people. Lonely Planet opens the doors on home cooking and traditions, showing how food and drink have become integral to personal and national celebrations, and discovering the myriad of regional cuisines that exist in even the most familiar countries.

In the land of Cervantes, Cádiz and castanets, food binds and defines Spanish culture. This guide explores Spain's culinary soul, whether it lurks in a 24-hour tapas bar, in the crowds of La Boqueria Market or even in your own kitchen. Spanish cuisine goes way beyond recipes and you'll discover that history, simplicity and conviviality are just some of the vital ingredients in the real taste of Spain.
