Real Spanish Cooking Made Easy Jul 18, 2006
Those of you who know me, know that my mother is from Mallorca, that she's a whopping good cook and that she's somewhat of a critique. My mother-in-law is from Mexico and she's a whopping good cook too. So having these two women over at my house at the same time, dining at my table, ingesting something I've made, can be a challenge. This book has saved me. I've had it for years and even though I know many of the recipes in it by heart, I still go back to it time and again. Yes, I play with them, adding and subtracting spices, but that's what cooks do. Good recipies are starting points and if you want to try cooking up real Spanish food, this book is a wonderful place to start.
