Spanish / Portuguese Food & Wine Articles, Blogs & Books

From friends, collaborators & other good writers


My Kitchen in Spain – Janet Mendel, a long-time Spain resident, writes on cooking in Spain. Great recipes. She has published cookbooks as well.

Food Barcelona – Excellent blog reviewing Barcelona restaurants. The highs and the lows.

Metropolitan Barcelona – Barcelona restaurants and bars. Especially good when written by Tara Stevens.

Foods From Spain Blog  – Wonderful blog written by one of our favorite Madrid people, Adrienne Smith.


A Late Dinner: Discovering the Food of Spain – I highly recommend this tour de Spain book by Paul Richardson, an outstanding writer who lives in Extremadura. Also see his book, Our Lady of the Sewers (out of print. One of the funniest books I've read.)

Charcutería: The Soul of Spain – Written by Chef Jeffrey Weiss, it's all about the making of Spain's fantastic jamón ibérico, chorizo and the other artisan preserved meats and fowl. Not only meat-making; includes recipes.
