Spanish Cooking by Elizabeth Cass
London: The Cookery Book Club, 1968
Hardback with Dust Jacket over Red boards with Gilt titling to Spine
From the cover: Doctor Cass practised for many years in Gibraltar, from where she made extensive journeys through Spain. Her skill as a cook is combined with an exploratory spirit and a lively enjoyment of good food. She carried home recipes from every region, tested them, compared them, checked and double-checked them, and has now set them out clearly and concisely for English-speaking readers.

She includes for the benefit of travellers in Spain a long chapter on the characteristic dishes of the various regions, with suggestions on what to ask for. She has also had the courage to undertake a classification of the fish to be found off Spanish shores, with descriptive notes on their appearance and eating quali-ties: a much-needed contribution to the full enjoyment of gastronomic opportunities.

Although Doctor Cass writes for the kitchen rather than for the bookshelf, her relish for her subject and her detailed knowledge give her book an atmosphere which makes it enjoyable as well as useful.
