Book Review – Madeira: The Islands and their Wines?

written by Catherine Fisher | 6th July 2015

Richard Mayson’s newest book, Madeira: The Islands and their Wines, is exactly what I needed. Let me explain. I’d just become a part-time wine student, and went to class one evening a week, initially just to get a bit of variety from life at my full-time day job. I was telling a friend about my recent enrollment in ‘wine...

Iberian Book Review: The Wines of Madeira by Trevor Elliott

written by Burt Frink | 22nd October 2012

I must begin with a confession. I was never very fond of school. I endured the typical K through College plus before severing myself devoting full time to my own interests.

written by Burt Frink | 27th September 2012

Culinaria Spain is a coffee table book not really designed for the spots and spills of a working kitchen, and I believe its creators never intended it to lean up against the counter backsplash while you took a whack at fideuà (Fideo). It is part of a series that has raised the bar in the unique experience of armchair...

Iberian Book Review: Pete Wolstencroft’s “Tapas and Tintos”

written by Burt Frink | 19th September 2012

Pete Wolstencroft’s Tapas and Tintos was electronically thrown on my desk from Catavino suggesting that it had my name on it. Maybe it did, and maybe it didn’t, but there it was, and I settled in with a set of expectations led by the title. Well, it is not a book on Spanish food and wine. The longer I...

CookBook Review – Cook España, Drink España, by John Radford and Mario Sandoval

written by Ryan Opaz | 8th April 2008

I love cookbooks, but I hate to follow recipes. I know I’m not alone, however. For me, a recipe is a suggestion, while a cookbook is an inspiration – a thought that makes many of my friends cringe. For them, recreating the traditional techniques and nuances of a historic dish is the goal; whereas, for me, I want to...
