HASH(0x9cf2be10) out of 5 stars IF YOU LOVE FOOD, YOU NEED THIS BOOK!!! Dec 7 2009
By Alex B. Min - Published on
Format: Hardcover
We (my wife and I) collect cookbooks for many reasons, but you know you've hit the jackpot when a certain book is simultaneously fun to read with great stories; sprinkled with useful tips and hints throughout; contains photos that make you want to pluck the food off the pages to eat; inspires you; and, oh by the way, is full of delicious recipes that do not require a degree from Le Cordon Bleu or the Culinary Institute of America to prepare.

First and foremost, we think for a cookbook to deserve a decent rating, the recipes have to work. Everything we've tried has been scrumptious thus far. Each recipe is well laid out, starting with a short introduction on the dish. Ingredients for the recipe follow and are listed logically. Easy to understand steps that make sense for any average home cook follow the ingredients.

If your mouth is not watering by the time you're done reading the recipe for "Sherry-Braised Short Ribs with Autumn Vegetables" that starts on page 95, you may not have a pulse. Even someone who can barely boil water should be able to follow the recipe for "Albondigas" (Spanish for meatballs in tomato sauce) on page 110 and easily make succulent meatballs worthy of serving to any guest. The "Roasted Beets with Cabrales and Toasted Walnuts" cold tapas on page 31 is simplicity itself, but with a "secret" trick (using a certain type of vinegar to accentuate the beets) that make the dish transcendent. I could go on and on and on.

Beyond the well laid out recipes that work, the anecdotes in the book such as "The Meat Guy" (starting on page 158) are amusing and fun to read. We don't know this meat guy, Mark Berlin, but after reading about him, we know we want to meet him someday and get our meat from him.

Whether you cook or not, if you love food, this is a great book and a must have!

HASH(0x9b3d9774) out of 5 stars Buy this book now. You won't be disappointed. June 14 2009
By Ninette Enrique - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I have an extensive collection of cookbooks, including cookbooks in Spanish which I bought in Spain, but this cookbook has brought great Spanish and mediterranean cooking into my kitchen like no other. In addition to the fabulous photography and excellent writing and explanations about wine and party menus, what is striking about this book is that it accomplishes both simplicity and sophistication in all its recipes. This means that these recipes should be accessible to any home cook and to anyone who loves to entertain in style (but with low stress). I'm not a big drinker, but the cocktails like blood orange margaritas, clementine crush, and red and white sangrias, are too tempting to pass up. Some of my cookbooks end up downstairs in my bookshelves, but this one is going to stay with a coveted few in my kitchen.

HASH(0x9b4e73f0) out of 5 stars Delicious recipes! Nov. 12 2009
By Magdalena - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I frequently dine at Barcelona and have always loved the food, so what could be better than having access to some of their great recipes? Even if you haven't experienced the food at Barcelona, this is great way to learn some delicious, exciting, new recipes to try at home.
The book is beautifully illustrated and the recipes are easy to work with, not to mention the food is fantastic. If you're bored with always cooking the same thing, and want try something new, this is the cook book for you.
It's becoming my go-to cookbook.
I Highly recommend it!

HASH(0x9b587dc8) out of 5 stars Great for Entertaining! June 9 2009
By Cookbook fan - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A long-time patron of the fabulous Barcelona Restaurants, I was anxious to incorporate their signature dishes into my repertoire...and this book does not disappoint. There are recipes for both cold and hot tapas, main dishes (including Barcelona's great "chicken al pimentos") and party food. I especially like the chapter on Spanish wines and cocktails (blood orange margaritas top my list!) and the wonderful ideas for outdoor entertaining. The book is easy to read and easy to use -- great for anyone who likes to eat and loves to entertain!

HASH(0x9b84d3cc) out of 5 stars Barcelona cookbook Dec 6 2009

Format: Hardcover
Barcelona review
What I like most about this book is that the recipes work. There are no crazy insane recipes that require an advanced degree in the culinary arts. I also finally found the best Patas Bravas and chimichurri sauce recipes. These are so common, but it's hard to find really good recipes like the one in this book. Even if you don't cook, the book is full of beautiful pictures and delicious stories so it's fun just to read as a collection of stories.
