Vivid and richly textured, A Late Dinner is a delightful journey through Spain and Spanish cuisine. Paul Richardson is the perfect guide. In lush prose he brings to life the fascinating people who grow and cook and eat the hugely varied and still little-known food of Spain. Richardson's vibrant writing takes readers beyond gazpacho and paella and immerses them in the flavorful world of Spanish food -- from the typical coastal cuisine; to the ancient shepherd cooking of the mountains; to the cities of Madrid, Barcelona, and San Sebastián, where chefs are setting the trend for modern cuisine across the globe. His evocative descriptions -- the fried þsh in Cádiz; the tender asparagus and sweet crispy lettuce of Navarre; the Catalan calçotada, a feast of grilled spring onions in a nutty, delicately spicy sauce; the whimsical creations of internationally acclaimed chef Ferran Adrià -- are a celebration of the senses. Richardson traces the roots of Spanish cooking to the landscape, the people, and the history of this beautiful and complex country. A Late Dinner is a glorious and intimately drawn portrait of Spain.

"The Food of Spain gives you the real taste of a country that has an intense passion for its food, wine and time-honoured culinary traditions. Join our journey from the tapas bars of Madrid to the home kitchens of Granada, through to the markets of Barcelona, and the fine-cuisine restaurants of San Sebastian, and discover the food that defines today's Spanish cooking: garlic mushrooms and chorizo with cider, a saffron-infused seafood paella, or deliciously rich crema catalana. Each recipe is photographed as it is made, and is accompanied by useful hints and ingredients. Beautiful photographs shot in Spain show how to choose the best produce, from market-fresh Mediterranean vegetables and seafood, to meats and a wealth of herbs, spices and condiments. To partner the recipes, there are special features on many of the food ideas that encompass the Spanish way of life. A glossary helps you identify and source your ingredients and offers helpful tips on substitution."--Publisher.

The traditional foods of La Mancha tell stories all their own. Some of Spain's most outstanding products come from this region, including Manchego cheese, saffron, Serrano ham, fine wines and flavourful olive oils. The cooking of La Mancha can be as simple as pisto, a medley of summer vegetables sautéed in olive oil, or as complex as the layered flavours of lamb stuffed with spinach and pine nuts. It's as subtle as saffron ice cream and as robust as peasant garlic soup. In Cooking from the Heart of Spain – the first English cookbook to focus specifically on the foods of this distinctive region – André Simon Award winner Janet Mendel offers up nearly two hundred recipes for fresh rustic dishes, including tapas, soups, salads, meat and fish and desserts.

Like Elizabeth David, Claudia Roden can write about anything. Whether it's Middle Eastern, Spanish or Italian food, she is the cook to turn to. She is world renowned for her classic books like Arabesque and the Book of Jewish Food. These draw on her Egyptian Jewish roots so it's no wonder Middle Eastern chefs like Ottolenghi are among her biggest fans. But it is interesting to see that Russell Norman of Polpo cites Food of Italy as his favourite cookbook. Polpo is very cool, very modern, very Italian and yet still Claudia Roden's classic is his go-to cookbook. Food of Italy was first published 25 years ago next year. But the recipes are so fresh yet timeless they are hard to date. For this edition she has updated over 30% of the recipes to fit modern tastes with new inclusions like farro salad and burrata. The book is structured by region. So you get the glorious tomato and aubergine dishes of Sicily; the classically Roman dishes like salty meat and fried vegetables, and rich Tuscan stews and soups, and so on. With over 300 short recipes it is an incredible repertoire, and it is completely approachable for home cooks. This fully illustrated edition includes recipe photos as well as local Italy scenes. This is the first time it has had photos since it was originally published.

Americans have fallen in love with Spanish food in recent years, and no one has done more to play matchmaker than the award-winning chef José Andrés. In this irresistible companion volume to his public television show Made in Spain, José reminds us—in the most alluring and delicious way—that the food of his native Spain is as varied and inventive as any of the world’s great cuisines. To prove it, José takes us on a flavorful tour of his beloved homeland, from Andalucía to Aragón. Along the way, he shares recipes that reflect not just local traditions but also the heart and soul of Spain’s distinctive cooking. In the Basque Country, we discover great fish dishes and the haute cuisine of some of the finest restaurants in the world. In Cantabria, famous for its dairy products, we find wonderful artisanal cheeses. In Valencia, we learn why the secret to unforgettable paella is all in the rice. And in Castilla La Mancha, José shows us the land of the great Don Quixote, where a magical flower produces precious saffron. The dishes of Made in Spain show the diversity of Spanish cooking today as it is prepared in homes and restaurants from north to south—from casual soups and sandwiches to soul-warming dishes of long-simmered beans and artfully composed salads. Many dishes showcase the fine Spanish products that are now widely available across America. Many more are prepared with the regular ingredients available in any good supermarket. With more than one hundred simple, straightforward recipes that beautifully capture the flavors and essence of Spanish cooking, Made in Spain is an indispensable addition to any cookbook collection.
