Tapas are Spain's gift to the world of great cooking: a fresh and fun way to eat with friends and familyand easy to make at home. Using simple Mediterranean ingredients, a tapas feast is a perfect combination of little dishes packed with big flavors.Tapas by Jose Andres is the first major book in a generation to celebrate this world-renowned way of eating, from a man who is the best possible authority: an award-winning Spanish chef in America, with seven highly acclaimed restaurants to his name.

Having worked as a chef in the United States for two decades, he's also a thoroughly American cook who draws on American ingredients for his inspiration, and is a master at translating his native Spanish cooking for this country's kitchens. His simple and delicious recipes include:
Fish such as American Red Snapper Baked in Salt; Monkfish with Romesco Sauce; and Basque-Style Stuffed Maryland Blue Crabs
Chicken including Catalan-Style Chicken Stew; Chicken Sauteed with Garlic; and Chicken with Lobster
Pork such as Chorizo Stewed in Hard Cider; Figs with Spanish Ham; and Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Apples
Rice dishes including Lobster Paella; Black Rice with Squid and Shrimp; and Traditional Rice with Clams
All these recipes are full of tremendous flavor and creativity, as well as in-depth ingredient notes and a rich atmosphere that will transport you to the lush countryside, hip cafes, and sun-drenched coasts of Spainand back again to dinner at home.

I discovered Jose Andres's restaurant, Jaleo, in Washington and just had to get this book. I sent my brother there when he was at a conference, and he, too, loved the food. So I'm giving him the cookbook for Christmas. There are a few heard to find ingredients in it, but overall, the recipes are doable and delicious.Read More
