I love European travel and I love the various cuisines of European countries. Enter the 'Culinaria' series and 'Culinaria Spain: Cuisine, Country, Culture.' The 'relaunch' version of this book provides some 480 large pages of text, color photos of food, food producers and countryside and a large number of classic recipes for iconic dishes from each of the major regions of Spain. There are useful, if general, maps. All of this is highly satisfactory for reading, viewing and dreaming. The basic organization of the book is Regional which serves very well to orient travellers to 'what's for dinner' in the specific regions they might visit on a given trip. Regions given special attention include: Catalonia, the Balearic Islands (Majorca, Minorca, etc.), Aragon, Navarre, Rioja, Basque Country, Cantabria, Asturias, Galicia, Castile-Leon, Madrid, Castille-La Mancha, Extremadura, Valencia, Murcia, Adalucia and the Canary Islands. Within each region, special products including, as appropriate, wines, cheeses, meats, poultry, seafood and vegetables are singled out for attention. Some cultural background is presented and glorious color photos are used for illustration and clear recipes are given. Most recipes can be closely approximated using ingredients found in larger American supermarkets and specialty ingredients can be purchased in Latino markets and online.Short essays explore subjects such as: the Arab's Culinary Legacy, Don Quixote, Carnival Time in Tenerife, Fish in Spanish Cusine, the Tapas Culture, the Pilgrim's Road to Santiago de Compostela and so on. Text is clear and informative and it sets the stage for appreciating an area and its dishes.
