A collection of over 80 best-loved recipes from the heart of chef José Pizzaro's Spanish family home.
In The Spanish Home Kitchen, José Pizzaro travels back to his mother's house to draw inspiration from the flavors he grew up with, and shares over 80 of his favorite recipes, gathered from all over Spain.
José Pizarro grew up in central-western Spain, in the tiny village of Talav&eaacute;n. His family had been farmers for generations, and he spent his childhood on his parent's farm, helping his father produce vegetables, dairy products and different meats. Life in this small village centered on dinner, with great recipes pass from generation to generation through his grandmother, to his mother, and now him.
Recipes include: Shoulder of Iberico Pork in Rich Tomato Sauce with Zesty Couscous; Migas with Fried Egg, Chorizo and Bacon; Seared Squid with Caramelized Fennel and Onions and Lemon and Parsley Dressing; Cherries in Aguardiente Syrup with Pistachio Ice Cream.
From nostalgic childhood favorites that his mother fed the family, to more modern recipes with his Spanish twist, there's a recipe here for everyone.
