Have you ever read a new issue of your favorite food magazine right after dinner, only to find that the magazine managed to make you hungry all over again? If so, you'll know what I mean when I say that the February 2005 issue of Food & Wine, filled with recipes from Spain, really got my attention.
Before I was halfway through the issue I was scheming about how I could cook and taste as many of the recipes as possible. I hurried out to the kitchen where my husband was washing the dishes and announced that we had to have a dinner party so that I could cook my way through the issue.
- Best Tapas from the Best Tapas Bars
- Cheese Guru
- Fast Times with Ferran Adrià
- Speedy Spanish Dishes
- 10 Best Scouts | Importers of Spanish Wine
Inspiration struck and I thought of an even better way to accomplish my goal of tasting as many new recipes as possible while sparing my husband a party's worth of dirty dishes.
