Spanishwoman's Kitchenby Pepita Aris
Spain has a vast and varied landscape: towering mountains, snowcapped even in summer, cool upland valleys, arid semi-desert landscapes, dramatic coastlines and verdant countryside are just a few of the regional contrasts to be found. As varied as the regions themselves are the domestic recipes and food styles, reflecting the experience of generations in getting the best from simple ingredients. Home cooking can be said to be the true flavour and character of Spanish cuisine.
The Spanishwoman's Kitchen is a unique insider's view of the hidden riches of traditional Spanish food -- a sparkling collection of over 125 authentic family recipes that the tourist rarely encounters. Pepita Aris travelled Spain through the seasons, to learn at first hand from grandmothers, housewives, career women, a Marquesa, even a Franciscan nun -- as well as hunters, fishermen, shepherds and pig farmers -- the specialities of the region and season.
