I'm envious of your Spanish journey. I've been trying to learn some provencal cooking techniques this summer, but I think Spanish is next. Of the cookbooks you've listed, are there any that are your particular favorites?

Jen: I don't have many Spanish cookbooks as I'm just starting to explore making Spanish dishes. I have Penelope Casas's Delicioso!, which is a regional cookbook, as well as La Cocina de Mama, which is a collection of home recipes from Spain's top chefs. I have a third Spanish cookbook, but I'm not sure yet if it's worth mentioning.

You pretty much can't go wrong with a Penelope Casas book. From what I've seen, she is to Spanish cuisine what Marcella Hazan is to Italian. She's actually American-born, but is so accomplished in her knowledge and promotion of Spanish cuisine that the Spanish government named her a Dame in their Order of Civil Merit.

The other books in the list are books I would buy if I had more free cash at present. The first one, in particular, looks like a book I wish I had found before we took our trip.

I never have an idea the foods of the world. We have Thai, China, Japan, McDonalds, and Laos and Cambodia food - but we never see something like you show on your site. Makes me think about how so many foods in the world I cannot try because I don't live in the country. Very nice for you to show us! thanks! :p Joy
