The New Spanish: Bites, Feasts and Drinks
by Jonah Miller
- International Cooking
The New Spanish takes a wonderfully playful approach to the cuisine of Spain, one calibrated to the way we eat today. Don’t look for the same-old tapas and sangria here. Instead you’ll find a saffron rice fried with bacon and shrimp, golden squash christened with Marcona almonds, Basque sausages in hot dog buns, a cocktail made with red wine and cola (trust us, it’s delicious), and even a blueprint for making your own vermouth. Combining the traditional flavors and celebratory vibe of Spanish-style eating with contemporary techniques and a tongue-in-cheek attitude, The New Spanish makes the ideal introduction to the cooking of Spain—perfect for weeknight meals with family as well as get-togethers with friends.
"This book strikes a perfect balance between Spanish tradition and American creativity, approaching one of my favorite cuisines with both respect and imagination.” -Mario Batali, chef, author, entrepreneur
"From canned conservas to Spanish feasts, Jonah Miller and Nate Adler share a deep respect for the Spanish culinary tradition. Food lovers have showered acclaim on their joyous restaurant, Huertas, which translates classic recipes into a thoughtful and raucously fun dining experience that is at once Spanish and very New York. Now home cooks can for the first time reproduce the flavor of Huertas with straightforward, doable recipes, and the results will transport you to your favorite San Sebastian pintxo bar faster than you can say 'Manzanilla.'" -Danny Meyer, CEO of Union Square Hospitality Group and Founder of Shake Shack
"Over the last couple years, I‘ve fallen for Huertas, not only because of their delicious food, but also for the graciousness of their hospitality. In this beautiful and creative book, they warmly welcome you into their world, a place that is fun-loving and light hearted, and teach you not only the recipes for their incredible dishes, but also about the history and culture behind them, and the many other secrets they have learned along the way." -Will Guidara, Restaurateur, Eleven Madison Park
