In Janet Mendel's own words: "I love tapas - a variety of tastes, enjoyed with wine and with friends. For me, they are the essence of life in Spain. For this book, I've selected my favorite tapas, the ones that I enjoy cooking and serving to friends. You don't have to go to chef's school in order to prepare them. They are based on traditional Spanish products."
Janet Mendel has written about Spanish food for over 30 years. One of her older books, 'Cooking in Spain', is considered by many to be the authoritative guide to Spanish cuisine. 'Tapas - A Bite of Spain' is the first of her cookbooks to focus exclusively on tapas.
'Tapas - A Bite of Spain' is a showcase of the exciting world of tapas. With this book, you'll learn all about the tapas custom including what to eat and where to eat. Mendel's book begins with a tasting guide to tapas around Spain. From there, learn how to make the same great dishes in your own kitchen and how to plan a tapas party that will impress your friends!
In addition to the tapas tour of Spain, 'Tapas - A Bite of Spain' includes: tapas party menus, a Spanish-English glossary, a guide to Spanish cheeses, a wine pairing guide for tapas and 140 kitchen-tested recipes with full-color photographs.
