A gentle, lighthearted look at Traditional Spanish Family Cooking.
In Paul Schaverien’s “It’s Not Just Paella” you’re going to get his exact recipes for traditional family recipes from every corner of Spain.
Here’s just a small sample of the delicious recipes you’ll find in this cookbook:
I’d only been living in my house a few weeks before I met a short, tubby chap and his wife walking towards the house. I was a bit surprised to see them, but even more surprised when he said “Hello mate. Just moved in then?” in a broad Australian accent. It turned out that Jose had lived and worked in Australia for about 20 years and his wife Anne was Australian. I don’t see a lot of them because their “weekday” place is down on the coast near Murcia, but whenever they come inland Jose will bring a mackerel or ten to eat. We normally barbecue them, but this recipe works just as well if you bake the fish.
