Tapas (Hamlyn Cookery)
Tapas, that wonderful Spanish habit of taking a few vividmouthfuls as appetiser with aglass of wine or sherry before getting down to the serious business ofeating, is more a mode ofthought than a coherent cuisine or set of recipes. This, at any rate,is the message of LouisePickford's Tapas. Purists might gasp, but once she has thrownthe constraints of Spanishauthenticity to the winds, the world, so to speak, is her oyster. Thisis modern, cosmopolitantapas with a vengeance. Categorising her little dishes basically bynumber of mouthfuls (OneBite, Two Bites, Bigger Bites ... ), she pulls together from all overthe world a savoury collection ofappetisers and snacks to suit all occasions. From the simplest, such asMarinated Olivesor Salted Almonds, to the elaborate, such as Picnic ChickenLoaf or Deep-FriedRavioli Pockets, they're full of flavour and consistentlyimaginative. Oriental influence makesitself felt in Thai-Style Mushroom Kebabs and ChickenSate, while Mediterraneanflavours appear in Souvlakia and Piedmontese Peppers.There's even a dash ofEastern European, in Piroshki. Spanish flavours do get a lookin, though, with the likes ofSpanish Tortilla and Potato Bravas, both very traditionaltapas dishes. So uncorkthe Manzanilla and get feasting. --Robin Davidson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
