I've enjoyed cooking from few cookbooks as much of this one. Everything has been wonderful, with Gran Romesco (de Mariscos) and Tocino del Cielo being a couple of the many highlights.

The best book on authentic Spainish cooking. The rice pudding recipe is to die for, as well as the chicken paella.
