About Victoria Twead:    Victoria Twead nagged her long-suffering partner, Joe, into moving from England to Spain in 2004. They settled into a tiny mountain village in Andalucía, became reluctant chicken farmers and ended up owning probably the most dangerous cockerel in Spain. 



At last! A cookbook packed with colour photos and easy step-by-step instructions for preparing 100+ delicious Spanish dishes, both traditional and unusual. Victoria Twead and Gayle and Iain Macdonald have combined their passion for Spanish food to compile this cookbook, guaranteed to bring Spanish sunshine into your kitchen.


Back in 2004, I nagged poor, long-suffering Joe into relocating to a tiny, remote mountain village in Andalucía, and my passion for Spanish food began. When I was writing 'Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools', I wanted to include a few recipes given to me by the villagers. However, I wanted more. What a stroke of luck it was when I found Gayle and Iain! "Of course!" they said. "Help yourself! Use any recipes you want!" So I did, and I have shamelessly plundered their recipes and expertise for my books ever since. There’s not much that Gayle doesn’t know about Spanish cuisine and she tests and tries every recipe, whether traditional or new. Self-taught, she is an instinctive chef with a talent for the taste and colour of Spanish cooking. Iain is the photographer, and his pictures are enough to make one’s mouth water. Their knowledge of Spanish cookware, cured meats and customs is breath-taking and I heartily recommend their website, I’ve been asked many, many times for a collection of Spanish recipes, and here it is... I hope you enjoy them as much as Joe and I do. ¡Salud! Victoria
