    Publication date: 01/11/2017

    After nearly forty years, Pedro Subijana, the three-star Michelin chef and his world-famous restaurant, Akelare, is at the forefront of the New Basque Cuisine, championed in the 70s by Juan Mari Arzak. In the words of Subijana, 'New Basque Cuisine aims to focus on seasonal products but adding a large dose of imagination and pushing back the frontiers'. This movement planted the seed of what was to become the avant-garde of Spanish gastronomy. Recipes were updated but always based on respect for Basque tradition and the best possible local produce. Above all, he says, 'Throughout the meal, we take care of every last detail to ensure that the occasion is a memorable one'. His continued devotion to his profession leads him to change the menus at his restaurant every two months. His restaurant Akelare (a Basque word that has entered the Spanish language, meaning a coven of witches) is in a spectacular location on the slopes of the Monte Igueldo, one of the symbols of the beautiful city of San Sebastian, and looks over Concha Bay, the island of Santa Clara and the Bay of Biscay; it has got to be one of the most special places for a meal anywhere in the world. Here in this visually stunning edition you will find some of the culinary creations of Akelare from the last ten years and also excellence, innovation and the avant garde, three terms that could define Akelare's style, as well as an insight into the work of the kitchen and its extensive team. Subijana was recently awarded the National Prize for Gastronomy in recognition of his contribution to Basque cuisine.

    Andalusia
    ISBN: 9781784882266
    Publication date: 01/05/2019

    Bordering Spain's southern coast, Andalusia is a place where the past and modernity blend together to form a rather magical destination. From sandy beaches to amazing architecture, buzzing tapas bars and flamenco dancers, it's full of passion.

    Not just a feast for the eyes, Andalusia is also a food-lovers paradise, and Andalusia, award-winning chef José Pizarro takes readers on a journey through it's most delicious dishes. Blessed with land that produces magnificent wild mushrooms, delicious Jabugo ham, and some of the world's best olive oil and seafood, you'll be spoilt for choice. Many of the dishes go back to Moorish times – or earlier – and each of the eight provinces has their own special dish. Try your hand at Pork loin with pear and hazelnuts, Prawns baked in salt with mango, chilli, coriander salsa, and a rather boozy Barbary fig margarita. Written in José's signature fuss-free style, this is genuine, bold-tasting Spanish food, easily made at home.

    Andalusia is all about simple pleasures: a glass of wine or sherry, a piece of cheese or ham, and good company. And that's all you need to make yourself happy. It's all about the freshness, the quality and the diversity of the produce. Set to the backdrop of beautiful location shots, Andalusia is a must for anyone who loves authentic, simple Spanish food.

    Up until three years ago I was confident that I had experienced true Spanish cooking bringing together the many flavours of the Mediterranean - and its health benefits too. I had holidayed many times in this incredible country and sampled many traditional dishes and there are numerous lovely Spanish restaurants emerging all over the UK now too. Moving to Spain in 2015 made me quickly realise that I had not even scratched the surface and that the types of foods the Spanish eat, when they eat, their cooking methods and their use of herbs, spices, oils and locally produced foods was so incredibly different to anything I had tasted or experienced before. My quest to learn as much as I could during my time in Spain about their food and culture resulted in me working in a wide range of incredible restaurants, some Michelin Star with award winning chefs and others only the locals would know where the grandmother is still cooking her famous recipes in what was her original house 60 years earlier. Some in the city, some by the beach and others hidden in the mountains. Collaborating with many of the restaurants in which I worked, I have now brought to you Authentic Spanish Cooking which shares the recipes of restaurant quality food that you can easily recreate in your own home using traditional ingredients and methods. With each restaurant we have provided their most popular dishes including a starter, main course and dessert. AUTHOR: Julie Neville is the wife of footballer, TV Commentator and now Women s National team football manager Phil Neville. Well known for her love of health and fitness and author of Superfoods - How to make them work for you . Julie has always had a passion for cooking and after the families move to Spain in 2015 for Phil to work at Valencia Football Club, Julie was captivated by the Spanish culture, their love for food and cooking and their use of fresh local ingredients. This resulted in her working in a wide range for Spanish restaurants for two years and the creation of her latest book Authentic Spanish Cooking . Now relocated in the UK but keen to share all that she has learnt. 100 colour illustrations

    When Sam and Eddie Hart opened Barrafina, their no-reservations tapas bar and restaurant in London's Soho, they had no idea how successful it would be. Four years on and it is always packed, always stylish, always lively. And so is the food: together with their Basque-born head chef Nieves Barragan Mohacho, the Harts are cooking the best Spanish food in London today. In this cookbook, they share their secrets and recipes: this is not difficult, fancy restaurant food, but gutsy, fresh, sometimes delicate, sometimes hearty food, that a home cook will be able to prepare easily. First, there is food to eat with your hands: fried pimientos de Padron, salt cod fritters and delicias, the Spanish equivalent of Devils on Horseback. Then cold meats; on to fish and shellfish - from simple razor clams on the grill, to more sophisticated dishes such as turbot with cavolo nero; rice dishes and paellas; big dishes of roast and braised meat - from suckling pig for a special occasion to rabbit stew or roast cumin-rubbed pork with quince sauce; and, desserts in the form of chocolate and almond tarts, cakes and the classic Crema Catalana. There is everything here to help you recreate great Spanish food at home. With over 120 recipes, Nieves, Sam and Eddie will whisk you through step-by-step instructions, showing you everything, from how to make the more difficult things, such as arrocina beans with chorizo, morcilla and pork belly, to how to cook a simple but perfect tortilla.

    “Truly insider access, an authentic look at the traditions of one of the most incredible culinary regions of the world.”
    —José Andrés

    Tucked away in the northwest corner of Spain, Basque Country not only boasts more Michelin-starred restaurants per capita than any other region in the world, but its unique confluence of mountain and sea, values and tradition, informs every bite of its soulful cuisine, from pintxos to accompany a glass of wine to the elbows-on-the-table meals served in its legendary eating clubs.

    Yet Basque Country is more than a little inaccessible—shielded by a unique language and a distinct culture, it’s an enigma to most outsiders. Until now. Marti Buckley, an American chef, journalist, and passionate Basque transplant, unlocks the mysteries of this culinary world by bringing together its intensely ingredient-driven recipes with stories of Basque customs and the Basque kitchen, and vivid photographs of both food and place. And surprise: this is food we both want to eat and can easily make. It’s not about exotic ingredients or flashy techniques. It’s about mind-set—how to start with that just-right fish or cut of meat or peak-of-ripeness tomato and coax forth its inherent depth of flavor. It’s the marriage of simplicity and refinement, and the joy of cooking for family and friends.

    Publication date: 01/10/2018

    Catalonia has come to global attention this year in its quest for independence, but there is much more to this beautiful region situated on the west coast of the Mediterranean and blessed with one of the richest food cultures in Europe. Although Catalonia is still geographically and politically connected to Spain, Catalans consider themselves independent with their own language, history, culture and cuisine. Its food is considered unique in Spain, and it is home to one of the highest concentrations of Michelin-starred restaurants in the world - including being the original location for the famed El Bulli.

    Unlike in other parts of Spain, Catalan cuisine does not centre around tapas, and although pintxos do feature heavily, they are not the mainstay of the region and most dishes are larger, stand-alone meals. Dishes are heavily influenced by pork and fresh seafood with a focus on fresh, seasonal produce that varies from recipes as simple as crushed tomatoes smeared on bread to hearty, slow-cooked stews. Famous dishes include calcots - large salad onions cooked on a coal barbecue and then dipped into nutty and addictive Romesco sauce, a unique paella made without saffron and the addition of vermicelli noodles, myriad types of Catalan sausage served with white beans, sauces such as aioli and picada, and multiple pastries and desserts including the creme Catalan (a version of creme brulee). Beautifully packaged with stunning location and food photography, The Catalan Kitchen is the ultimate cookbook for lovers of Spanish and Mediterranean food
