Andaluz is a cookbook that bridges past and present in southern Spain.
For nearly eight centuries, Moorish rule in Andaluca brought about a cultural revolution, resulting in architectural splendors like the Alhambra as well as a rich culinary history. Andaluz is a quest to illustrate the legacy of the Arabs and Berbers in contemporary kitchens through recipes from 21 cooks and chefs.
Couscous, rice, eggplant, oranges, figs, apricots, marzipan, and a wealth of spices are just a few ingredients inherited from this key period ""along with meticulous agricultural techniques. By digging deep into traditional dishes, scouring markets, and learning from home cooks, local tavern owners, and Michelin-starred restaurant chefs, Fiona Dunlop offers a vivid gastronomic window on this region.
