Shellfish Paella (Paella de Marisco) From 'Spain'

Cook the Book Kate Williams 4 comments

Jeff Koehler wrote the cookbook on paella. Literally. So I was keen to try out the paella recipes in his new cookbook, Spain. His shellfish paella is based on a recipe from his mother-in-law, who has been making this particular pan of rice every weekend for close to 50 years; for a paella newbie like myself, it seemed like a well-tested place to start.

Velvety Menorcan Fish Soup (Caldereta de Pescado) From 'Spain'

Cook the Book Kate Williams 3 comments

Jeff Koehler's fish soup from his new cookbook, Spain, is based on a classic dish from the island of Menorca. Traditionally prepared in a deep cazuela and enriched with saffron and the roe of spiny lobsters, this style of soup is fragrant and truly velvety. Spiny lobsters are hard to find outside of Spain and they have a sliver of a short season, so Koehler has shared instead a twist on the soup that can be eaten year-round, anywhere in the world. More

Salt Cod, Orange, and Olive Salad (Remojón de Naranja) From 'Spain'

Cook the Book Kate Williams Post a comment

Salt cod makes several appearances in Jeff Koehler's new cookbook, Spain. Some recipes use it for seasoning rather than a centerpiece, while others offer it on a plate with little more than olive oil. I wanted to strike a balance between the two, and chose to prepare a simple salad of salt cod, orange, and black olives. More

Empanada with Marinated Pork and Roasted Red Peppers (Empanada de Lomo) From 'Spain'

Cook the Book Kate Williams 3 comments

My previous experience with empanadas consisted of individual hand-pies filled mostly with sweet ground beef and olives. But my perception of the savory pastries has totally shifted as of this week. Tucked into the tapas chapter of Jeff Koehler's new cookbook, Spain, is a recipe for a giant pie filled with slivers of paprika-marinated pork mixed with caramelized onions and peppers. More

Chicken Croquettes (Croquetas de Pollo) From 'Spain'

Cook the Book Kate Williams Post a comment

Miniature fried savory patties are some of my favorite small bites. I'm most familiar with hearty arancini and fluffy salt cod fritters, but I'll eat just about anything bite-sized that's served hot from the fryer. And based on the description in Jeff Koehler's new cookbook, Spain, Spanish croquettes offer something a little different. More

Cook the Book: 'Spain' by Jeff Koehler

Cook the Book Kate Williams Closed

Despite the popularity of tapas restaurants and high-end Spanish cuisine in restaurants these days, I've had surprisingly few new Spanish cookbooks cross my path. Occasionally I will notice Spanish influence, or else find chapter headings for "[insert alternative cuisine here] tapas," but these nods towards the country are less than satisfying. So imagine my delight when my copy of Spain arrived in the mail. More

Chocoholic: A Chocolate Walking Tour of Barcelona

Sweets Yvonne Ruperti 2 comments

As difficult as it was during a recent trip to Barcelona to pull my salivating jaws away from the legs of Iberico jamon, boquerones, and practically free flowing olives, I couldn't pass up sampling a bit of what the city offered in terms of chocolate. So I did a little bit of research, grabbed a partner, and set about for a full on day of cacao. More
