Tapas Recipe Book
Spanish tapas recipes with traditional food and cooking from Spain:
A Tapas recipe book is a must for those with a love of traditional meals from Spain. They are usually served as small portions of highly flavoured food which are enjoyed at a leisurely pace in the company of friends and family. These snacks and appetisers are served hot or cold with a mixture of vegetarian and meat dishes.
The Drummer Boy is my latest novel about the ghost of a Gordon Highlander Drummer Boy from the Battle of Waterloo who haunts a modern day army nurse.
Chapters take place in modern day Aberdeen, at the Noose & Monkey bar and restaurant as well as His Majesty’s Theatre and Garthdee. Other scenes take place at Tidworth and during the Napoleonic War.
Read the first three chapters for free on most devices.
The first that we would like to recommend is The Little Tapas Book. As the title suggests it is a handy volume that is small enough to fit in most kitchens. From the moment you pick it up you know you are in for a treat because of its padded cover that is a joy to hold. Then there are the vibrant photos that start from the front cover and continue throughout. There are photographs for most of the recipes with additional pictures from around Spain showing life in bars and the culture including the countryside, bullfighting, agriculture, markets and cuisine. The food looks ever so appetising and will encourage home cooking.
This is also light on the purse or wallet and so dives straight into the delicious Spanish tapas recipes though sadly there is no introduction to the culture of traditional Spanish food.
Instead the reader gets over 60 recipes which are easy to prepare and cook at home using a wide range of ingredients that are widely available throughout popular UK shops.
Each Spanish recipe has the preparation time, cooking time and the quantity each will make as well as list of ingredients and step by step instructions.

They are broken down into three sections of meat, seafood and vegetarian. So readers will discover how to make Chorizo in cider, meatballs or chilli beef quesadillas in the meat tapas food section.
