Basic & Essential Aug 6, 2007
This book is great that in that it has a large color photo for nearly every recipe. The recipes are varying in scope to some extent but annoying in that the author chose to make different pages for variations to the same recipes such as croquettes (ham/seafood/vegetable) so this makes me feel that he was trying to "up" the recipe count with minimal effort.
All in all, recommended for a "basic" tapas cookbook.
Tapas: The Essential Kitchen Aug 30, 2006
Clearly written instructions. Good photographs. The 10 recipes I have prepared were all good. For the most part ingredients were readily available.
Okay but not great. Jan 24, 2006
I felt most of the dishes take too long to prepare and make. I think these recipies are for a person with better than average cooking skills and not cooking for a family of 4 after a hard days work. Most of the mushroom dishes are delicious: just the right amount of flavor if you follow the instructions.
A Separate Style of Cusine Jul 30, 2001
"Tapas" contains step-by-step recipes of authentic Spanish flavors from the interior of Spain and it's surrounding islands as well as some of the author's own creations. Richard Tapper takes you on a Spanish culinary tour that includes such mouth-watering and flavorful foods like Stuffed Artichokes, Chorizo and Olive Empanadas, Spicy Hard-Boiled Eggs, Shrimp Omelette, Cheese Marinated in Tarragon and Garlic, Mallorcan Pizza, Moorish-Style Kabobs, and Sangria (well, yeah!) Don't put a lid on your next tapas party. The author suggests serving tapas in Spanish crockery and to have Spanish classical guitar music playing in the background to help create an authentic Spanish bar atmosphere. Buen provecho!
