    My mate Graham lent this book to me before going away on two weeks leave, and just before Maddy’s birthday. I wasn’t sure what to cook for her birthday and so, given this book and needing to tell him I’d cooked something from it, I settled on a Spanish feast. God, some of the recipes are really fantastic. The Tortilla with sweet onions is pretty special. I figured lots of tapas would be the go – so tried the pinchitos morunos, port skewers of the Moorish variety.

The Tortilla with sweet onions is pretty special. I figured lots of tapas would be the go – so tried the pinchitos morunos, port skewers of the Moorish variety. I also did the Fatayer from this too – pastry stuffed with pumpkin, pinenuts and fetta cheese (yum is the word you are struggling for). I’ve done these twice now and as someone who doesn’t normally like pumpkin unless it is in soup I can heartily recommend it. I would really like to try to grilled quail and rose petals – but must go to an Indian spice place. This book is quite something and is fairly easy to cook, but like most things in life, does take some time to prepare. But well worth the effort.

    Great collection of updated classic recipes derived from Arabic influenced Spanish cooking. By far some of the most complex (flavor wise, not preparation!) cuisine in the world the cooking of the Arab diaspora is really fascinating to me. This book does not disappoint.

    Can't believe they could release a cookbook with such big mistakes. I tried to make a birthday cake from the cookbook "Truffle cake with bitter chocolate, coffee and cardamom". It ended up being a soup not a cake, because there was too much milk in the ingredients 400 ml, but i think it should have been 40 ml. Cooking it and reducing it by 1/3, as the recipe said didn't help. And amount of almonds of just 65g doesn't cover the bottom, I ended up using 120g. It seems like they didn't test or even Can't believe they could release a cookbook with such big mistakes.

    I wish the recipes didn't use grams!!! So confusing. So for that reason I've had a difficult time with a few recipes. The falafel is fantastic. Actually every single meze in the book is fantastic!!!

    Fabulous and authentic. I bought this mostly for the Arabic recipes. The precision and attention to detail means your dishes leave little room for error. Beautiful book.

    It's difficult finding general/culinary specific cookbooks that fit my dietary restrictions (vegetarian/no lactose). This works well. The recipes are interesting and tasty and are not too ingredient taxing (semi-obscure ingrediants are substitutible or optional). I liked it when I initially skimmed it in Sainsburys (it was on sale).

    Encountered and vanquished a simple lentil soup with lemon. Stole Staghorn Sumac from Searsburg roadside on Sam & Sam Clark's recommendation; toasted/dried and blended the berries into a bitter salad dressing. Enjoyed cooking with this book.

    useful perspective with some interesting recipe tastes selected formatted by a Arab influenced take on Spanish food.Not an inspiring book by any means, but a useful one for the odd recipe selection.

    I bought this book after a trip to Spain. It's challenging, not for the cook in a rush, but even just using the recipes as a base for combining flavours has yielded good and tasty results for me.
