José Pizarro has written four of his own cookery books, as well has having contributed to several others too.
In his first two books, Seasonal Spanish Food and Spanish Flavours, José was able to highlight the wonderful larder that Spain has to offer. He counts the ingredients found in Spain as some of the finest in the world and has travelled across Spain collecting is favourite recipes. In both books, he celebrates classic Spanish dishes, but also focuses on twists on classics and modern interpretations, all of which are easy to recreate at home.
The recipes in Basque are a reflection of what José wants to eat at home and the way he cooks for family and friends. He shows you not just some of the most popular and traditional dishes from the region, but also the quality and diversity of the ingredients that you can find there. José wants you to pick up this book, feel inspired to cook from it and be really proud of what you can do.
José’s latest book – Catalonia – will hit the shelves in October 2017. Dispelling the myth that creating tapas and traditional Spanish fare is scary, he shows you how to take the experience of eating in the little bars of Barcelona to your own kitchen. Set to the backdrop of the stunning views of Barcelona and the rest of Catalonia, you’ll really feel like you’re on a magical holiday in Spain. The book also includes menus and drinks suggestions to help you plan, shop, cook and, most importantly, enjoy this wonderful way of eating and socialising.
