Best 2013 cookbook from the MLK Jr / DC Public Library

As someone who goes the biblioteca four to five times a week (to work; my favorites in Barcelona are  here and here), this news from the Washington, D.C., public library is particularly gratifying. Not to mention leading a list of names that reads like a roll call of culinary world royalty: Andy Ricker, Deborah Madison, Mollie Katzen, and David Tanis. Their verdict on Spain: Recipes and Traditions: “A tour de force of Spanish cuisine in all its variations.”

Spain one of NYT best cookbooks of 2013

What is surely one of the year’s highest points, the Sunday New York Book Review has named Spain: Recipes and Traditions one of the best twelve cookbooks of the year.

Jeff Koehler does justice to another regionally complex country in SPAIN: Recipes and Traditions From the Verdant Hills of the Basque Country to the Coastal Waters of Andalucia (Chronicle Books, $40). The author, a food writer who has lived in Spain for many years, focuses on roots cooking, the simple, flavorful dishes that warm Spanish hearts.

Koehler is an expert guide, providing highly informative headnotes to each recipe, often explaining regional variations in the same recipe and suggesting some clever tips. In his recipe for clams with oloroso sherry, for example, he suggests substituting dry white wine with a little brandy if sherry isn’t at hand. These pages abound in seductively rustic dishes like pork baked in a salt crust and served with fruit compote, chestnut purée or a blue cheese sauce.
