Bar 44 Tapas y Copas
is one of the few recipe books to celebrate Spanish food and drink in equal measure. It includes over one hundred recipes, which elevate traditional Spanish food and drink to exciting new heights. All of them have been tried and tested in the five busy Bar 44 restaurants – five thousand diners a week, a quarter of a million a year. Its authors Owen and Tom Morgan are two of the most knowledgeable and passionate people celebrating modern Spanish food, drink and culture in the UK. Gifted chefs, their delicious recipes are accompanied by sumptuous colour photography. Chorizo in cider, beetroot gazpaho, dates in bacon, lamb empanada, pigeon and lentils, roast cauliflower and romesco, strawberry and cava sorbet, pear and olive oil cake and blood orange salad are just some of the dishes included in the book. In addition the book is peppered with vignettes of how the Morgan brothers became restauranteurs, and the lengths they go to source ingredients and discover new dishes. The mountains, coasts and plains of the country are their larder as they visit caves full of cheese and taste sherry at the many feria. Bar 44 Tapas y Copas
is food, drink, Spain and fun packed between the covers of a beautifully designed book.
