    Akelare
    ISBN: 9781910690451
    Publication date: 01/11/2017

    After nearly forty years, Pedro Subijana, the three-star Michelin chef and his world-famous restaurant, Akelare, is at the forefront of the New Basque Cuisine, championed in the 70s by Juan Mari Arzak. In the words of Subijana, 'New Basque Cuisine aims to focus on seasonal products but adding a large dose of imagination and pushing back the frontiers'. This movement planted the seed of what was to become the avant-garde of Spanish gastronomy. Recipes were updated but always based on respect for Basque tradition and the best possible local produce. Above all, he says, 'Throughout the meal, we take care of every last detail to ensure that the occasion is a memorable one'. His continued devotion to his profession leads him to change the menus at his restaurant every two months. His restaurant Akelare (a Basque word that has entered the Spanish language, meaning a coven of witches) is in a spectacular location on the slopes of the Monte Igueldo, one of the symbols of the beautiful city of San Sebastian, and looks over Concha Bay, the island of Santa Clara and the Bay of Biscay; it has got to be one of the most special places for a meal anywhere in the world. Here in this visually stunning edition you will find some of the culinary creations of Akelare from the last ten years and also excellence, innovation and the avant garde, three terms that could define Akelare's style, as well as an insight into the work of the kitchen and its extensive team. Subijana was recently awarded the National Prize for Gastronomy in recognition of his contribution to Basque cuisine.

    Andalusia
    ISBN: 9781784882266
    Publication date: 01/05/2019

    Bordering Spain's southern coast, Andalusia is a place where the past and modernity blend together to form a rather magical destination. From sandy beaches to amazing architecture, buzzing tapas bars and flamenco dancers, it's full of passion.

    Not just a feast for the eyes, Andalusia is also a food-lovers paradise, and Andalusia, award-winning chef José Pizarro takes readers on a journey through it's most delicious dishes. Blessed with land that produces magnificent wild mushrooms, delicious Jabugo ham, and some of the world's best olive oil and seafood, you'll be spoilt for choice. Many of the dishes go back to Moorish times – or earlier – and each of the eight provinces has their own special dish. Try your hand at Pork loin with pear and hazelnuts, Prawns baked in salt with mango, chilli, coriander salsa, and a rather boozy Barbary fig margarita. Written in José's signature fuss-free style, this is genuine, bold-tasting Spanish food, easily made at home.

    Andalusia is all about simple pleasures: a glass of wine or sherry, a piece of cheese or ham, and good company. And that's all you need to make yourself happy. It's all about the freshness, the quality and the diversity of the produce. Set to the backdrop of beautiful location shots, Andalusia is a must for anyone who loves authentic, simple Spanish food.

    Publication date: 01/10/2018

    “Truly insider access, an authentic look at the traditions of one of the most incredible culinary regions of the world.”
    —José Andrés

    Tucked away in the northwest corner of Spain, Basque Country not only boasts more Michelin-starred restaurants per capita than any other region in the world, but its unique confluence of mountain and sea, values and tradition, informs every bite of its soulful cuisine, from pintxos to accompany a glass of wine to the elbows-on-the-table meals served in its legendary eating clubs.

    Yet Basque Country is more than a little inaccessible—shielded by a unique language and a distinct culture, it’s an enigma to most outsiders. Until now. Marti Buckley, an American chef, journalist, and passionate Basque transplant, unlocks the mysteries of this culinary world by bringing together its intensely ingredient-driven recipes with stories of Basque customs and the Basque kitchen, and vivid photographs of both food and place. And surprise: this is food we both want to eat and can easily make. It’s not about exotic ingredients or flashy techniques. It’s about mind-set—how to start with that just-right fish or cut of meat or peak-of-ripeness tomato and coax forth its inherent depth of flavor. It’s the marriage of simplicity and refinement, and the joy of cooking for family and friends.
