One of our favourite cookbooks. I highly recommend the "Pollo al agraz," which we refer to as the Orgasmic Chicken, and the "Pisto Andaluz". The only restriction we face is access to all the ingredients. It was difficult in the middle of the Canadian Prairie, but it's damned near impossible in Fife, Scotland! But it's easy enough to make a sneaky substitution for those elusive piquillo peppers.

My favorite cookbook of the moment. I haven't been disappointed by a single recipe -- nothing fancy, just the kind of recipes you'd get from your Spanish abuelita -- if you were lucky enough to have one.

My favorite cookbook of the cuisine of Spain. It would be nice to have more pics of the finished dishes, but the text is lively and enjoyable.
