    Catalonia, located in Spain's far north-east corner and centred around the port of Barcelona, has its own cuisine and culture which has spread to encompass Valencia, the Balearic Islands (Majorca, Minorca and Ibiza), Andorra, the ancient region of France formerly known as Roussilon, and a single city on the Italian island of Sardinia. Colman Andrews explores this whole territory of Catalan cooking, from its French, Roman and Moorish roots to today's modern interpretation. Along the way he creates a portrait of the food, wine, history and culture of the region.

    Catalonia has come to global attention this year in its quest for independence, but there is much more to this beautiful region situated on the west coast of the Mediterranean and blessed with one of the richest food cultures in Europe. Although Catalonia is still geographically and politically connected to Spain, Catalans consider themselves independent with their own language, history, culture and cuisine. Its food is considered unique in Spain, and it is home to one of the highest concentrations of Michelin-starred restaurants in the world - including being the original location for the famed El Bulli.

    Unlike in other parts of Spain, Catalan cuisine does not centre around tapas, and although pintxos do feature heavily, they are not the mainstay of the region and most dishes are larger, stand-alone meals. Dishes are heavily influenced by pork and fresh seafood with a focus on fresh, seasonal produce that varies from recipes as simple as crushed tomatoes smeared on bread to hearty, slow-cooked stews. Famous dishes include calcots - large salad onions cooked on a coal barbecue and then dipped into nutty and addictive Romesco sauce, a unique paella made without saffron and the addition of vermicelli noodles, myriad types of Catalan sausage served with white beans, sauces such as aioli and picada, and multiple pastries and desserts including the creme Catalan (a version of creme brulee). Beautifully packaged with stunning location and food photography, The Catalan Kitchen is the ultimate cookbook for lovers of Spanish and Mediterranean food

    Dishing Up the Thyssen
    ISBN: 9788417173258
    Publication date: 01/10/2019

    The Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum has always shown interest in the world of gastronomy. On the one hand, it offers visitors a gastronomic tour of our collection. On the other hand, it has developed the DelicaThyssen line for the shop, in which they include local food products of excellent quality. With all these precedents the idea arose to produce a publication, Dishing Up the Thyssen, of a gastronomic nature, a recipe book made up of 25 dishes by renowned Spanish chefs, a dialogue between art and gastronomy, a journey through taste, understood as meaning and as aesthetics. The selected chefs have visited the rooms of the Museum looking for inspiration in a painting from its extensive art collection. Each one of them has chosen a work and made a recipe, not so much as a literal translation of the work to the plate, but as an inspiration that could appear through the theme of the chosen work, the texture of the material used by the artist, the colours... Each cook explains, in a brief text, why he has chosen that work and which elements of the painting have led him to create the recipe. Then there is the preparation of the recipe with the list of ingredients, finish and presentation. The participant chefs are: Andoni Luis Aduriz, Samy Ali, Víctor Arguinzoniz Juan Mari y Elena Arzak, Sura Ascaso, Oriol Balaguer, Martin Berasategui, Juan Manuel de la Cruz, Quique Dacosta, Andrea Dopico, Lucia Freitas, Gonzalo Garcia, Luis G. Bua, Diego Guerrero, Sacha Hormaechea, Angel Leon, Roberto Martinez Foronda, Paco Morales, Tono Perez, Albert Raurich, Roberto Ruiz, Carme Ruscalleda, Jesus Sanchez, Ricardo Sanz, Paco Torreblanca, Manuel Urbano. 50 colour illustrations
