Over 600 culinary industry leaders participated in the CIA's 2006 "Worlds of Flavor" International Conference and Festival. By transforming the Worlds of Flavor festival into a cookbook, the Culinary Institute of America-one of the best culinary schools in the world-brings the conference's superb culinary talent right into the home kitchen. Spain and the World Table culls recipes from 25 of Spain's and the US's leading chefs, from Manolo de la Osa (proud owner of a Michelin star restaurant in Spain) to Norman van Aken (owner of Norman's in Miami and L.A.).
Award-winning cookbook author Martha Rose Schulman joins the CIA in presenting 125 accessible recipes, from Manchego Cheese and Potato Croquettes with Quince Sauce to Escabeche of Halibut with "Salsa" of Marcona of Almonds, Raisins, and Serrano Ham. Visiting chefs' cooking techniques and regional notes appear in features throughout the book. An enthusiastic foreword by Chef Jos Andrs, one of Spain's exports to America, and Greg Drescher, Director of CIA Greystone, and an introduction describing Spain's culinary history and its modern influence on world cooking round out this must-have book.
