In taverns from Madrid to Seville to Barcelona, you'll find Spaniards passing the early evening hours drinking crisp dry sherry and snacking on a variety of snacks - or tapas. This work covers everything from a simple plate of olives and chorizo sausage with a loaf of good bread to feasts that include Spanish omelettes, shrimp with garlic, and stuffed tomatoes. While this style of eating is wonderful for warm Mediterranean evenings, it is also perfect for entertaining and quick meals. Now create your own little piece of Spain with this book of easy to follow recipes that are suitable for both beginners and experienced cooks. Filled with elegant photographs, this beautifully designed volume is a great addition to any cookbook collection.
