    Spanish Tapas are essentially appetizers served in bars throughout Spain and according to this book have become a craze around the world pp7 Well I don't know about all that but Tapas does offer variety of flavors in fun and economical dishes This books is a very good collection of both authentic traditional Spanish Tapas as well as new and modern dishesOddly there were two recipes that I found in separate sections of the book that were so similar as to be practically identical; Olive Caviar pp 44 see photo above and Anchovy and Olive Tapa pp 212

    Another lush cuisine classic from Phaidon perhaps out of reach or interest for most cooks at home The Book of Tapas highlights the classic recipes of Spanish and even Mediterranean small plate cuisine but it's not for the faint of heart Lots of frying pan frying not deep frying cheese and gobs of homemade mayonnaise There are a few probable misses orange carrot salad for example and a variety of savory flans and mousses But the hits are on classic Spanish ingredients flavors and recipe variations After my recent exposure to Spanish cuisine I found a lot I'd be interested in trying but the cost of the cookbook and the prevalence of homemade mayonnaise in the recipes mean it's not for everybody

    I love love love tapaswish there were Spanish restaurants here in the SF Peninsula to hang out with my neighbors there though unfortunately they're not as into Spanish cuisine as I am except for one neighbor who has traveled in Spain This is the Joy of Cooking for tapas as Jose Andres aptly calls it His foreword What is tapas? and Ines Ortega's chapter Tapas in Spain which discusses how modern chefs in Spain are updating these traditional dishes are interesting and fun More useful to the tapas novice is the glossary and A to Z list of Spanish ingredients The book is further divided into vegetable tapas cold and hot egg and cheese tapas cold and hot fish tapas cold and hot meat tapas cold and hot as well as guest chefs recipes What I plan to make? Alioli or garlic mayonnaise of course Fisherman rice An anchovy and hard boiled egg recipe Unfortunately my bookshelves are packed and I checked this book out from the public library and will return it though I will check it out again if ever the impulse to host tapas night hits

    This book is a beautiful and comprehensive look at Spanish tapas or 'small plates' Recipes are divided into various categories of cuisine and then further separated into 'hot' and 'cold' groups Dishes are interesting and approachable although some are slightly obscure Smoked Eel Mousse Photographs are limited but illustrative and mouth watering Meagan

    So many great recipes to choose from I can't wait to make a bunch of mini dishes Book provides recipes color photos of many of the dishes and a word glossary so you can become familiar with the authentic Spanish names for the items you'll be buying and preparing

    Good history and photos Lots of recipes but probably not a whole lot that I would make Still interesting though


  7. says:

    Really enjoyed the photos in this one


  8. says:

    Nom The photography is good and the dishes look delightful If you make me want to try baby eels you have succeeded


  9. says:

    Leek flan p 97 Turned out very good but the 20 minutes' cooking time was like 50 minutes


  10. says:

    Loved the bright colors font and celebrity chef section but I hate cookbooks without photos and after flipping through it a few times couldn't find anything I really wanted to make
