The legacy work by one of the most influential experts on Spanish cuisine Penelope Casas was one of the premier experts on Spanish food: She taught Americans about jamón serrano, Manchego cheese, and chorizo, in addition to countless dishes, from patatas bravas to churros. She wrote several acclaimed books, and 1,000 Spanish Recipes
is her final work and legacy. It is the latest—and a very special—addition to the award-winning 1,000 Recipes series; in this unmatched collection of simple, precise recipes, she takes readers on a culinary journey of Spain from Galicia to Madrid to the Canary Islands. There is a wealth of options for tapas (including 18 Spanish omelets); soups (11 recipes for gazpacho); salads; main courses; vegetable, bean, and grain dishes (50 paellas!); breads; and desserts (20 types of flan). Icons for vegetarian recipes, special menus, and features on Spanish ingredients and dishes will engage and reassure cooks. This culmination of Casas’s 40-year career and lifelong love affair with Spanish food will be a treasured cookbook and guide.
