Lonely Planet World Food Spain (Lonely Planet World Food
A guide to Spanish food including history and background
of regional specialties. Wines and drink included as well.
Definitions, great pictures and wonderful descriptions of
dishes. There are no recommendations for restaurants, so
think of this book as a way to understand Spanish food in
Eating & Drinking in Spain: Spanish Menu Reader and Restaurant
for food and drink, recommendations on restaurants and tapas
bars, etiquette and more. Pronunciation lessons help you
order so the waiters understand! Seriously, if your Spanish
is not that good this may make the difference between good
and bad dining on your trip.
Routard: Andalucia & Southern Spain: Food, Drink and Accommodation
I do believe they are published in France, but definitely
offer a European point of view for the young, budget-minded
traveler. What they do best is offer advice and recommendations
on places to eat, look for nightlife and crash for the evening.
Many restaurants and hotels in Sevilla display their stickers
outside from previous recommendations. I've seen them on
some great places, as well as a few questionable ones...
The Wines of Spain
Ahhh, the world of wine. Well covered in this book are the
many regions of Spain producing wines, from Costers del
Segre, Navarra, Peneds, Priorato, Ribera del Duero, and
Somontano, to some lessor known regions to those outside
of Spain. The grapes, soil, methods and more are covered,
with some good line drawings - this is for readers interested
in the process and best wines, not those who wish to see
a photo of each bottle next to a description.
Paella!: Spectacular Rice Dishes from Spain
Penelope Casas has a firm grip on the American aficionado
of Spanish cooking and cookbooks. in Paella! Casas
lists almost 60 authentic recipes, most of which hail from
the "birthplace" of paella, Spain's eastern coastal
region. It's not always seafood, you know! Paella, the dish
and not the book, is time consuming and cooking methods
vary. Many readers (and cooks) prefer the method of stove
top or grill cooking versus some of Casas' oven methods.
The Little Dishes of Spain
You think of Spain and eating and the first thing that comes
to mind are tapas! Before her book on paella there
was this one, a favorite of many trying something new or
relive there days ordering up a tapa or two. Over 300 recipes
are included from all over Spain, but there's a few missing
from Sevilla and Andalucia I wish were there. Although with
so many recipes and regional specialties we can forgive
and Wines of Spain
Another Penelope Casas's book! This one breaks away from
tapas and paella to give you some everyday recipes plus
wine from the the many regions of Spain. What wine goes
well with what dishes, plus a little cooking with wine.
Simple recipes that won't have you searching for lots of
new ingredients in the supermarket. Some background of the
culture and influences on the recipes makes it an interesting
read as well.
