Islas: Food of the Spanish Islands

This beautifully photographed cookbook takes you to the villages, homes, beaches, and hillsides of this yet-to-be-discovered region of the Mediterranean.

Isla is the first comprehensive cookbook to capture and celebrate the cuisine of Spain's Mediterranean islands Majorca, Minorca, Ibiza, and Formentera. With influences from the Spanish mainland regions Catalonia and Valencia, and from places further afield including Sicily, Sardinia, and the south of France, Isla invites you on a culinary journey to discover some of the Mediterranean's most authentic cuisines that are at once familiar and unique.

With stunning food photography showcasing the coastlines and interiors of these historic islands, stories on traditional recipes and one hundred simple and authentic recipes, this book is not only for lovers of Spanish food but any fan of Mediterranean cuisine.

Alongside these authentic recipes are beautiful spreads on local ingredients, cooking secrets, and dishes that have rarely been shared outside this part of the Mediterranean. Each chapter celebrates a different landscape--think mountains, the coast, and humble villages. This spectrum of flavor and soul is indicative of the food (and incredible lifestyle) from the Spanish islands.
