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.

First recipe I tried was the 'Helado de Leche Condensada' (sweetened condensed milk ice cream)...so so good. Next is going to be Croquetas!!!!! This book is well organized, covers the traditional cuisine while looking to the future.

I love this book. Not only is it an excellent cook book but it also continues a historical journey through Spanish culture. Sometimes I just sit at my dining room table and read.
