by Simone and Inés Ortega

This book really does contain 1080 recipes from all Spanish regions for everything: appetizers through to desserts. It was produced nearly 40 years ago and is a classic that can be found, well-worn, on the shelves of millions of homes in Spain. In this version, every recipe has been updated for English-speaking markets, with new illustrations by the famous Spanish graphic designer and illustrator, Javier Mariscal and 104 specially commissioned photographs. This is a must-have for anyone who likes real Spanish home cooking.

What the people say:

“Spanish cook book with more recipes than you can shake a paella pan at.”

The Times

“If you want to prepare truly authentic Spanish dishes, from paella to patatas con chorizo, there is only one book you need – the traditional bible of Spain that contains 1,080 recipes from the mother and daughter team of Simone and Ines Ortega now translated into English for the first time.”
