First published in 1996, TRADITIONAL SPANISH COOKING won the André Simon award for cookbooks in 1997. The current edition, a soft cover, was published by Frances Lincoln (U.K.) in 2006.
Here's what the Food Monthly wrote about me and the cookbook:
25 TRADITIONAL SPANISH COOKING Janet Mendel Journalist Mendel is an American who has lived in southern Spain for more than 30 years, immersing herself in the country's culture and cooking. This is an authoritative blend of both, with little asides – crema catalana is the Father's Day dessert of choice, apparently – making it more than just a thorough compendium of recipes.
(Frances Lincoln, 2006)
