Tapas are more than savory appetizers. "They represent a style of eating and way of life," says Penelope Casas, whose Tapas: the Little Dishes of Spain presents more than 300 recipes for the mouth-watering morsels. "So very Spanish, yet adaptable to America," she says, "they cross the line into what we think of as first course or main course dishes."
In chapters such as Tapas in Sauce; Marinades, Patés, Salads, and Other Cold Tapas; and Tapas with Bread or Pastry, Casas provides a definitive selection of the traditional Spanish bar food--dishes to pass out at a gathering, to serve on a buffet, or to make a party of. Readers wishing an introduction to this versatile food, and the culinary culture in which it thrives, will want this bestselling book.
The recipe array is vast. Sauce or ragout-like tapas include Shrimp and Mushrooms in Almond Sauce, Scallops with Cured Ham and Saffron, and Veal Meatballs in Spicy Chorizo Sauce. Endives Filled with Salmon and Shrimp Melon and Apple Salad are two examples of the many tantalizing cold tapas. Prawns Grilled with Garlic Mayonnaise, Lamb Brochettes, and the Three-Layer Omelet, a mixed-egg and vegetable tortilla, are hot-from-the-stove, show-stopping tapas. Including eight pages of color photos, a glossary of ingredients, menus, and a list of recommended Spanish tapas bars, the book is a complete tapas tour. Cooks at all skill levels will find dozens of these tasty little morsels to make and enjoy. --Arthur Boehm
Tapas are the little dishes of Spain, consumed with great relish at bars and taverns before lunch, and again before dinner. They have been a tradition in Spain for centuries and serve an important social function, accompanying a congenial drink and filling in the long hours between meals. Intended as a light snack or an appetite teaser, they come in hundreds of varieties, often characteristic of a particular region. Simple or elaborate, mild or spicy, a wide variety of textures and flavours is explored in the selection of more than 300 recipes presented in this book. They are suitable for drinks parties, small suppers, elegant dinners and family feasts. The author was awarded the Spanish National Prize of Gastronomy in 1983 and has written about Spanish food and travel for "Vogue", "Food and Wine", "Connoisseur" and "The New York Times". -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.Alle Produktbeschreibungen
Also recommended: If you love tapas you will love mazzas, the "little dishes" of the eastern Mediterranean, a stunning selection of which is included in Sonia Uvezian's latest and greatest cookbook, "Recipes and Remembrances from an Eastern Mediterranean Kitchen." This extraordinary volume should be added to every food lover's "must" list!
On the other hand, scaling up the quantities will give you great ideas for great tasting main meals.
The major criticism is that all quantities are in pounds, ounces, etc and translating these to metric units used outside the US is a pain.
