Book description
With the world in a swoon over the gastronomic riches of Spain--from the brilliant array of its traditional tapa dishes to the daring preparations of its new generation of chefs--the timing couldn't be better for the arrival of this long-awaited cookbook.

In the Cuisines of Spain, Teresa Barrenechea, one of the country's most talented culinary ambassadors, showcases her culinary heritage through over 250 recipes culled from her extensive repertoire, and from friends and fellow chefs across Spain. The famed rice dishes of Valencia, the brilliant mojos of the Canary Islands, the hearty stews and braised meats of the interior--all of the classics are here in peak form, as are many lesser-known but equally important and intriguing recional dishes.

Steeped in the history of her country, Barrenechea weaves a captivating narrative of Spain's diverse peoples, landscapes, and ingredients, revealing how such forces gave rise to the food traditions that we celebrate today. Over 150 full-color photographs from Barcelona-based photojournalist Jeff Koehler and renowned food photographer Christopher Hirsheimer put Spain's culinary riches on brilliant display
