While many think Spanish and Mexican cooking are the same, they aren’t; in fact they are totally different. Both are delicious, but Spanish cooking does not include the spicy chili-laden dishes that most of us are familiar with. For those who want to learn about and create authentic Spanish dishes, Spanish Cooking for Beginners: Simple and Delicious Recipes for All Occasions is a great place to start. This cookbook presents famous dishes such as Paella, as well as several varieties of tapas. There are also several mouthwatering recipes utilizing the best ingredients of Spain.

The recipes are written in standard form and are easy to follow. No matter what the cooking skill level, cooks will be able to create picture-perfect dishes. There are also beautiful photographs of almost every recipe, and just perusing this cookbook will make readers very hungry. There are also colorful illustrations that make the book fun.

If there is a negative to this cookbook it is that it doesn’t have enough recipes. There are only a few in each chapter, and readers and cooks will surely want more. Most of the recipes are fairly quick and definitely easy. They call for standard ingredients that are available at most mainline grocery stores. Many of the dishes call for Spanish paprika, which is one of the most used ingredients, as well as olive oil that is a mainstay in every Spanish home.

Anyone interested in learning about Spanish cooking will find this a good beginning. The recipes are definitely appealing, and the prose is well-written and informative.
