Editorial Reviews

Simone Ortega, who was born in France but emigrated to Barcelona before World War II, wrote the first edition of her ambitious cookbook more than 30 years ago, and it has been Spain's best-selling cookbook. Inés, her daughter, has helped revise and update the book, and it now appears in its first English version (Anglicized, not Americanized). Something like the Joy of Cooking for the Spanish home cook, it includes recipes for both traditional regional fare and dishes inspired by a variety of other cuisines. There are no recipe headnotes, but there are sidebars on techniques and lots of information on ingredients. Whimsical color drawings adorn almost every page, and there are color photographs as well. An essential purchase.
