My Kitchen in Spain: 225 Authentic Regional Recipes by Janet Mendel

From the sun-drenched Spanish countryside to the seaside villages to the bustling city tapa bars, one thing unites all of Spain: its varied and satisfying food. In this Mediterranean land of beauty and bounty, good food is a pleasure everyone shares. Spanish cuisine has flourished for centuries, inspired by luscious fruits and vegetables, fresh seafood and game, artisanal cheeses, cured meats, and renowned local wines. The influence of North African spices adds variety and unique flavors to the diverse cooking of this fascinating country.

My Kitchen in Spain celebrates the rich flavors and regional traditions of Spanish cooking. Janet Mendel has made her home in Spain for more than thirty years, collecting recipes from friends and neighbors, housewives and Sherry barons, olive farmers and restaurant chefs. From the far western province of Extremadura to the Moorish towns of Seville and Granada to the world-famous Basque region in the north, Janet Mendel discovers and chronicles the tastes and techniques of this remarkable country. Now experience the authentic flavors of Spain with favorites both classic and contemporary: Almond Gazpacho with Grapes, Sea Bass in Saffron Sauce, Fiesta Paella with Chicken and Shellfish. With a comprehensive chapter on tapas, Spain's enticing "little dishes," and 225 tempting recipes — for every course from soup to dessert — My Kitchen in Spain will bring the food delights of Spain home to your table.
