'One book I've loved this year is Made in Spain by Miriam Gonzalez Durantez. It's not just about the food and the recipes, you get an idea of what life is like, you get to visit a country and you get to be inspired, if it's somebody as intelligent and funny as Miriam.' Cerys Matthews, BBC RADIO 4 THE FOOD PROGRAMME
'Gorgeous recipes for a great cause' Nigella Lawson 'If you buy one cookbook this year: get this one' YOU Magazine
'Food is at the centre of everything we do in Spain. As we eat breakfast we think about what we will have for lunch, and during lunch we discuss what we will serve for dinner.'
In Spanish families, when you have eaten a really good home-made meal, people stay at the table long after the meal has ended, chatting and putting the world to rights. Made in Spain
is full of dishes that will encourage you to do just that. With over 120 delicious recipes, which stick to the key principle of Spanish cooking - respect the ingredient - Miriam GonzAlez DurAntez brings a taste of Spain to the family kitchen.
As an immigrant to the UK and from a family of food lovers, Miriam was determined to share her love of her native cuisine with her sons. The recipes in this book are adapted from the cookery blog she started with them (www.mumandsons.com), and provide a uniquely personal glimpse into a modern family kitchen, which will inspire home cooks everywhere to adopt a more Spanish approach to cooking and eating.
