The Little Dishes of Spain
Hardcover      ISBN: 0307265528

Penelope Casas, who introduced the classic little dishes of Spain to American cooks more than twenty years ago, now gives us a splendid updated edition of that seminal book--with fifty exciting new recipes and eight full pages of new color photographs showing tapas in all their glory.

Here are all the appetizer dishes that have long been a tradition in Spanish cuisine--m langes of seafood in aromatic sauces; little ragouts of meat, sausages, beans; colorful salads and marinades; the omelets called tortillas that enclose a variety of tasty tidbits; banderillas, zesty combinations on skewers; and empanadas, savory delights encased in pastry. The new recipes Casas includes reflect the influence of the innovative cooking in Spain today--dishes seasoned with soy sauce or balsamic vinegar; ingredients wrapped in flaky phyllo pastry; accents of goat cheese and arugula; foie gras in elegant presentations.

With Spanish cooking at the forefront of today's cuisine, this "exceptional book by the leading American authority on the foods of Spain" (as Craig Claiborne dubbed it in 1985) is a must for every adventurous cook in America today.

Tasting Rome: Fresh Flavors and Forgotten Recipes from an Ancient City
A Cookbook
Hardcover      ISBN: 0804187185
A love letter from two Americans to their adopted city, Tasting Rome is a showcase of modern dishes influenced by tradition, as well as the rich culture of their surroundings.

Even 150 years after unification, Italy is still a divided nation where individual regions are defined by their local cuisine. Each is a mirror of its city's culture, history, and geography. But cucina romana is the country's greatest standout.

Tasting Rome provides a complete picture of a place that many love, but few know completely. In sharing Rome's celebrated dishes, street food innovations, and forgotten recipes, journalist Katie Parla and photographer Kristina Gill capture its unique character and reveal its truly evolved food culture--a culmination of two thousand years of history. Their recipes acknowledge the foundations of Roman cuisine and demonstrate how it has transitioned to the variations found today. You'll delight in the expected classics (cacio e pepe, pollo alla romana, fiore di zucca); the fascinating but largely undocumented Sephardic Jewish cuisine (hraimi con couscous, brodo di pesce, pizzarelle); the authentic and tasty offal (guanciale, simmenthal di coda, insalata di nervitti); and so much more.

Studded with narrative features that capture the city's history and gorgeous photography that highlights both the food and its hidden city, you'll feel immediately inspired to start tasting Rome in your own kitchen.

Venezia in Cucina/The Flavours of Venice
Venezia in Cucina/The Flavours of Venice
Hardcover      ISBN: 8895218426
Venice has always been a bustling trade city. Its cuisine is the most profound expression of a territorial identity and was not immune to contaminations by other cultures. The need to preserve food during long sea journeys and strong links with the Far East—the origin of the city’s imported spices—generated recipes with unexpected flavours.

Nonetheless, the flavour of Venetian dishes reveals something more than its commercial past. To discover its complexities you must sail to the lagoon’s islands, where the restaurants offer authentic traditional Venetian cuisine. VENEZIA IN CUCINA captures the essence and inspiration of many of those native Venetian dishes, including everything from antipasti and entrees to wine pairings and delectable desserts.
