This book gives a great overview of regional cuisines, and the recipes are all very authentic. But for my American palate, there probably won't be a lot of recipes in here I will actually make. This is just a matter of taste - we are not big fans of cooked peppers, whole fish, and lambs' brains. Still, the book imagery is lovely and the book is very readable.
Loads of great info about the different regions in Spain and the national foods and spices produced there. The recipes themselves even give an indication as to which region they are from which is nice. Would prefer a picture of each recipe but the in-depth info makes up for it.
