X
 

Whether it is in Madrid’s cafés or in Barcelona’s fish markets, van den Brink takes you on a trip through Spain where tasting and smelling are the key occupations. You will see the shop windows in Madrid displaying pig’s trotters, the famous Serrano ham, or typical Spanish sweet cakes. You will taste crispy pig’s ears but also a rich chickpeas soup. You will smell the strong coffee and the damping tortilla when breakfasting out of doors. With historical background and personal memories and associations van den Brink puts down a lively description of Spain, its culture and traditions both in the city and the countryside. This story focuses on enjoying various Spanish dishes in both exquisite restaurants and more commonplace settings. This book will definitively get you hungry and make you want to try out the recipes for yourself.
