Bar 44: Tapas y Copas
“A great go-to recipe book.” – Matt Tebbutt
Bar 44: Tapas y Copas is the must-have Spanish cook book of the year. Created by brothers Owen and Tom Morgan, the force behind critically acclaimed, family-run restaurant group Bar 44, this selection of over one hundred recipes, each beautifully photographed, will take your tastebuds on an unforgettable Spanish getaway.
Bar 44: Tapas y Copas celebrates Spanish food and drink in equal measure. These delicious recipes – each tried and tested in the busy Bar 44 restaurants – elevate traditional Spanish cuisine to exciting new heights with dishes which look good and taste even better.
Chicken sobrassada and spiced yoghurt, beetroot gazpacho, tuna tartare with apple ajo blanco, lamb empanada, the best patatas bravas you will ever taste, strawberry and cava sorbet and pear and olive oil cake are just some of the dishes you can try in your very own kitchen. They tell you how to make moreish Spanish cocktails like their ever-popular Crema Catalana Old Fashioned and offer tips for making the perfect donostia-style Spanish gin and tonic, all accompanied by expert tuition on Sherry and Spanish wines from International Sherry Educator Owen.
In addition to mouth-watering recipes, the book is peppered with vignettes of how the Morgan brothers became restauranteurs, and the lengths they go to source ingredients and discover new dishes. The mountains, coasts and plains of their adopted country are their larder as they visit caves full of cheese and taste sherry at the feria in Jerez, taking you alongside them every step of the way.
Bask in the passion of two of the most knowledgeable people celebrating modern Spanish food, drink and culture in the UK. More than just a cookbook, Bar 44: Tapas y Copas is a must-have experience which packs fun, food and flavour between the covers of a beautifully designed book.
