My Food & Wine books

This is the first book in English to trace the history of the food of Spain from antiquity to the present day. 

From the use of pork fat and olive oil to the Spanish passion for eggplants and pomegranates, María José Sevilla skillfully weaves together the history of Spanish cuisine, the circumstances affecting its development and characteristics, and the country’s changing relationship to food and cookery.
