Finally purchased this book, after borrowing it from my local library for a few months. The shrimp baked in garlic recipe is fantastic!

One of the very best books on Spanish food. Not that Catalonia is Spain of course

Many people associate Catalan cuisine with Spain (and indeed, the author writes extensively about the Catalan culture in Spain within this cookbook). but I was introduced to Catalan Cuisine on a weekend trip to Andorra (that tiny country nestled between France and Spain) a few years ago. It was love at first sight and I knew I wanted a Catalan cookbook to add to my collection. Spanish tortilla, shrimp in garlic butter, creme Catalan - all the classics are here in one volume plus so much more. I [...]

I picked this up at the tail end of my honey moon is Spain, Fall 2006. It is a wonderful cookbook and Colman Andrews is a great writer. He gives a lot of info about the background of each dish, how it is served etc. Most of the ingredients are available in the US and he gives subs for items that you might have a hard time finding. If you have travelled though Catalonia then you will appreciate having these recipes. Hmmmlt cod anyone? It's good! Oh - and if you are travelling to Barcelona this wo [...]

Not just a cookbook but a compendium of language, anecdotes, culture, and characters. The author begins by expanining the bare essentials of Catalan cooking, such as key ingredients and the handful of basic sauces, then delves into local preparation methods, the origins of dishes, esoteric ingredients, stylized variations (some fabricated by himself), and important characters in the history of the country and the food. The non-recipe parts contain a varied selection of quotations, paraphases, an [...]

First thrust upon me at the beginning of my career as a chef by a true savant of Spanish cuisine (Thank you, David!), this book continues to amaze me. You'll know Colman Andrews as editor-in-chief of "Saveur" magazine. His food scholarship is beyond reproach. The food of the Catalans may well be where everything we know as standard Spanish, Italian and even French descended from. Some of the recipes have a distinctly medieval feel to them, evidence that this ancient people of Iberia have success [...]

Picked up at a charity shop simply as not only had no other book on the subject, but was unaware Catalonia had its own cuisine !It's very well written, not only as a cookbook but that most recipes have a preamble about it or the ingredients. Some of these, Salt Cod for example, cover a couple of pages.Bought out of curiosity, read with interest and pleasure.

I got this after I had gotten back from Barcelona and had so much wonderful seafood that I couldn't bear to not have more--unfortunately, it is very hard to replicate this, tho I know you can do it in an Iowa City kitchen because Assumpcio did it so wonderfully

Found a few recipes I will try out. Gave a nice, understandable geography lesson.

Not only the recipes are quite tasty, reading the book is a true pleasure.

A very true book. And very interesting to read in English. My Catalan friends say it is the truth about the traditional food of Catalonia.
