T+L Reports: Made in Spain

Move over, chorizo and sangria. "Spain is in the grip of a nueva cocina revolution," writes
T+L contributing editor Anya von Bremzen in her book The New Spanish Table (Workman, $19.95).
Von Bremzen, who nine years ago was the first food writer to bring word of Ferran Adrià's
avant-garde cooking to American readers, tells the story of modern Iberian cuisine through
interviews with leading Spanish chefs such as Dani Garcia and Juan Mari Arzak; she supplements
them with 275 recipes— from tangerine-marinated olives and tuna empanadas to salt-baked
pork in adobo. With primers on sherry, Spanish ingredients and where to find them, and the
numerous uses of Piquillo peppers, the book is a perfect culinary companion. Up-to-date
advice on where to eat on your next trip to Spain (tapas or pintxos in San Sebastián,
fresh-picked fava beans in Barcelona, frituras in Seville, paella in Valencia) makes
this an essential gastronomic travel guide, too.—DARRELL HARTMAN
