Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An expert in Mediterranean cuisine, Joyce Goldstein brings the warmth of Spain across the Atlantic with this delightful array of tapas recipes. These treats are small, savory, and perfect for an evening in with friends. Whether reliving a delicious trip to a tapas bar in Spain or discovering these small-plate delights for the first time, readers will find Goldstein's 60 recipes authentic, easy to make, and pleasing to the palate. Nothing could be a better accompaniment to a lingering glass of Catalonian wine than a few bites each of Fried Marcona Almonds, Chorizo Sausages Sautéed in Cider, and thin slices of Serrano Ham. With a short history detailing the origins of Spanish cooking, Tapas will have crowds of fans asking for más.

Review:

"Goldstein, author of Antipasti and Italian Slow and Savory, ably whittles down the expansive gastronomy of Spain into a worthy, compact cookbook. Instead of attempting an impossible feat — to include every component of the Spanish table in a glossy, chic nutshell — she wisely chooses the best of each dish, starting with five basic sauces that can be applied to the seafood, meat, vegetable and egg recipes that follow. Though a few dishes are larger than a typical small-plate (Asturian white bean stew or paprika-marinated pork tenderloin, for example), Goldstein stays true to the fundamental procedures and ingredients used in modern Spanish kitchens. Salty, spicy and sweet, Goldstein offers innovative tapas, showcasing the best of each of Spain's diverse regions. Each recipe comes with wine pairings, both Spanish and non-Spanish, and the book begins with a clever rundown of Spain's history, cheeses, cured meats and fish. While some recipes might seem daunting for beginners (cleaning squid or handling a whole octopus), there is also an entire chapter dedicated to 'Shop-and-Serve Tapas' that require little to no preparation. With vibrant photos and straightforward instructions, this book has all the makings of a reliable source of fun, crowd-pleasing ideas for the contemporary cook.
