Review quote

What the reader gets is an extremely palatable mix of history, travel and food. Taste Andalucia's past through the recipes, and explore its hidden corners with this entertaining and erudite writer ' what makes this cookbook really buzz for me is the first section, on the Moorish period of Andalucía, when the region was ruled by Arabs and Berbers from North Africa for eight centuries, reaching its peak during the Caliphate city of Córdoba. Fiona explains how strongly their cuisine and agriculture influenced the local customs and dishes: citrus fruit, rice, figs, chickpeas, almonds, pine nuts, saffron and many more products were all brought across the Mediterranean ' mouth-watering food photography and atmospheric shots of villages and dramatic landscapes. Buen provecho!-- "andalucia.com blog"
