Following close on the heels of the public’s love of Italian food, Spanish food is fast growing in popularity with more and more Spanish restaurants emerging all over the world and a tapas-style revolution happening in the way we eat out.

1080 Recetas de Cocina is a comprehensive collection of traditional and authentic Spanish recipes, covering everything from tortilla to bacalao. This title has been a bestseller in Spain since it was first published, and with over 2 million copies sold it can be found in most kitchens across the country. The book’s author, Simone Ortega is considered to be the doyenne of cooking in Spain and has written about food for numerous years, including for magazines and in books.

Since its first publication, over 35 years ago, 1080 has undergone several updates to keep it relevant to modern living while still preserving the integrity of the original book. For the English and American editions, the recipes have been adapted to suit readers in these countries and their kitchens, and include alternatives for local ingredients where necessary, but the authenticity of the original recipes has been carefully maintained.

Divided into 14 chapters, and including menu plans from celebrated Spanish chefs, cooking tips and a glossary of terms and ingredients, 1080 is presented in an approachable and user-friendly format. In addition, the no-fuss, encouraging style of the recipes makes this a book for everyone who has ever wanted to cook authentic Spanish food. 1080 offers readers the opportunity to take their first steps in Spanish cooking, or expand their repertoire of recipes, with one of Spain’s best loved cooks.

I bought this book on a whim, and I am very glad. To me it seems like a "Joy of Cooking" from Spain, there is a European quality to the recipes that I really like but my midwestern family find them just different enough to be fun. I like leafing through the book for ideas.

I REALLY wanted to like this book, but the first time I scanned through it, the first three recipes I read through thoroughly didn't list ingredients referred to in the preparation, called for outrageous cook times, etc. I'm not sure I'm unlucky enough to have found the only 3 out of the 1080 that have errors, so I'm very concerned about cooking from this book...
