  • Paella
    ISBN: 9780714860824
    Publication date: 01/05/2011

    Paella is Spain's best-loved dish, as delicious as it is popular. A winning but simple combination of Spanish rice with saffron, paprika, vegetables, meat and fish, it can be cooked easily at home for any number of guests, either on a conventional oven or outdoors on a barbecue, which makes it perfect for summer entertaining. Behind the paella we all know and love, however, is a rich and complex dish which has many little-known and traditional variations in Spain, each with different cooking techniques, flavours and textures.

    Paella explains the simple step-by-step techniques and ingredients to make the perfect basic paella – from choosing the right variety of rice and identifying the right paella pan to selecting the appropriate cooking method – as well as the regional variations with their different techniques, flavours and textures. There are over 70 traditional paella recipes, including seasonal varieties such as duck and turnip, lobster and spring vegetables, as well as some more unusual contemporary varieties (such as bonito with jamón ibérico), including sweet paellas. More than this, though, the book shows that paella can be seen as a technique as well as a dish, and explains how to build on this basic technique to create your own paella. In terms of simplicity, versatility and value for money, paella rivals risotto and deserves to be better understood. Paella is first cookbook in English from Alberto Herráiz, renowned expert on Spanish cuisine and head chef of Fogón restaurant in Paris, which is revered for its authentic and delicious paella. The book reveals the great culinary experience that good paella can be.

  • Reinventing Food  Ferran Adria The Man Who Changed the Way We Eat
    Reinventing Food Ferran Adria The Man Who Changed the Way We Eat
    ISBN: 9780714859057
    Publication date: 01/09/2010

    Ferran Adrià has done things with food never dreamed of or attempted before. He has created thousands of new dishes, and designed new implements for eating them. His influence over the culinary world is unmatched. His story is entwined with the rise of elBulli: with no formal culinary training, Ferran Adrià took a traditional restaurant perched on a remote Catalan clifftop, and placed it in the centre of the culinary map. Ferran takes a fresh look at the restaurant that has held three Michelin stars for over a decade, and receives over 2 million request for the 8,000 places served each year. The legendary multi-course menus of elBulli are developed by Ferran and his team over months of laboratory experimentation. This unique approach gives elBulli's food an alchemy all its own; for example, tortilla espanola, or Spanish tortilla, becomes a riot of flavour and texture with potato foam, onion purée and egg-white sabayon, through evolving cooking methods that influence the restaurant menus around the world.

    Reinventing Food charts Adrià's transition from comparative obscurity to becoming the focus of massive media attention – he has been admired, talked about, criticised more than any other chef alive today. Colman Andrews has spent over a decade in conversation with Ferran, as well as countless hours in his restaurant and workshop, and his account recasts Ferran's remarkable career trajectory on an absorbing, human scale. With unrestricted access to the chef and his family and friends, as well as decades of accumulated insights and interviews with the most prominent chefs and critics, Reinventing Food sheds new light on the most radical culinary innovator of our times. Lively and readable, and full of fresh insights, it will engage not just food-lovers of food, but anyone who enjoys a remarkable story: the story of how one young chef changed the gastronomic world, and reinvented food.
