Tapas are the little dishes of Spain. A wide variety of textures and flavours is explored in this selection of more than 300 recipes.

Her 1985 cookbook, Tapas: The Little Dishes of Spain, was among the first to chronicle for American readers the Spanish culinary tradition of tapas bars, or tascas, where Spaniards graze between meals over appetizers like baby eel, grilled sausage and prawn fritters, sipping sherry. That book also became a classic, riding an early wave of enthusiasm for tapas in the United States.

Penelope Casas, who introduced the classic little dishes of Spain to American cooks more than twenty years ago, now gives us a splendid updated edition of that seminal book—with fifty exciting new recipes and eight full pages of new color photographs showing tapas in all their glory.Here are all the appetizer dishes that have long been a tradition in Spanish cuisine—mélanges of seafood in aromatic sauces; little ragouts of meat, sausages, beans; colorful salads and marinades; the omelets called tortillas that enclose a variety of tasty tidbits; banderillas, zesty combinations on skewers; and empanadas, savory delights encased in pastry. The new recipes Casas includes reflect the influence of the innovative cooking in Spain today—dishes seasoned with soy sauce or balsamic vinegar; ingredients wrapped in flaky phyllo pastry; accents of goat cheese and arugula; foie gras in elegant presentations.With Spanish cooking at the forefront of today’s cuisine, this “exceptional book by the leading American authority on the foods of Spain” (as Craig Claiborne dubbed it in 1985) is a must for every adventurous cook in America today.

What a disappointment. Just got this in the mail, it is supposed to be a gift, and the book jacket is wrinkled and stretched out like it came off a dusty waterlogged shelf in someone's basement. Was expecting more pictures, rather than merely four color pages of photos smack in the middle of the book. The photos look they were original to the 1985 original publication. Haven't tried the recipes, so can't speak to those, but sure would be embarrassed to admit I payed $24 for this.

"Tapas" gives cooks a plethora of recipes from vegetarian to veal, pastries to pates. There's also a wide range of complexity - recipes range from 3 ingredients to 20. For variety and authenticity I would give this book a 5 star rating but it falls short because there are very few photos other than a handful in the middle of the book, and the arrangement of recipes is not ideal. I would prefer the book be sorted by main ingredient, seafood vs. beef for example, but it is arranged by type of tapas (tapas in sauce vs. tapas with bread) which I find much more impractical.

Excellent book! Recipes are a bit detailed and take time to prepare. Makes an excellent gift! I bought mine because of an invite to a friends house and his book had a lot of stains on the pages (always a good sign in a cookbook)

When I get a new cookbook, i go through it and flag the things I want to try. This has so few that don't look interesting that it defeated the process. everything looks wonderful, and I've already tried a few. Very pleased.

I returned the book. Many of the recipes seemed fairly complicated. I was looking for recipes for a one-time tapas dinner and found what I was interested in online.

This is one of Penelopes first books and in my opinion it rates a bit higher than ok. I don't want to be too harsh as the book is 20 years old but the downside is that it is poorly assembled with all of the photos at the center of the book and brief descriptions for each dish.

Having said this there are many many recipes (about two on each of 200 pages) making this a good source of ideas and information, but if you're planning on flipping through looking for a photo of something appealing, this is not the book for you.

This is THE tapas cookbook. Written for us regular folks. Easy to understand without exotic ingredients which are hard to find. Lots of interesting asides as well. Recommend this book.

When I first received the book, I scanned all the recipies - so many to try. Just dive in and fix a few at a time. Most are easy and fairly quick, so preparing a selection for dinner is not a chore.
Plan your menu with dishes that sound like you will love them (shrimp with ground almonds is fantastic), and then throw in a couple you are not too sure of. Who knows, you may find your next favorite dish.
Straight forward instructions, color photos and a clear presentation make this book very "user friendly."
