Barrafina is a highly successful London-based tapas bar, and now the people behind it have published a book with its best-kept secrets. The rave reviews call it “Possibly the best Spanish cookbook ever,” saying Sam and Eddie Hart are “the tapas maestros.” And not only are they spreading the joys of Spanish food beyond Spain’s borders, but the people love it. Four years going strong, Barrafina is still “packed, stylish and lively.” It’s a team of champions: the brothers and Basque chef Nieves Barragán Mohacho are wowing British palates with recipes like spicy Padron peppers, grilled razor clams, paella, salt cod fritters, Spanish omelet, cumin-rubbed port with quince sauce, rabbit stew and roast suckling pig. This cookbook pays homage to their restaurant, with a selection of more than 120 recipes—“gutsy, fresh, sometimes delicate, sometimes hearty food, that a home cook will be able to prepare easily.” The combination of step-by-step instructions with excellent photography makes this a great book to have on your kitchen shelf.
