Thirty five cooks offered their family recipes to produce more than 150 traditional Murcian dishes. Contributions also came from a few cooks who now call La Murta their home, with a dish from Moratalla, recipes from Extremadura and of course one from Debbie herself. The first print run has already sold out, with more books on their way.

The Making of A Cookery Book – Transcribing, Translating, Photographing & Testing The Recipes – Part 2

Feb 7, 2014

cod-balls-6x3With more than 70 notebooks the first major task was to index the recipes and find out what the scope of the book could be. Paco manfully got started cataloguing, reading and sorting through the notebooks, and realised he had 2668 individual, handwritten recipes. They covered all aspects of Mediterranean cooking – tapas, soups, salads, meat dishes, game, seafood, puddings…  Did I think we had enough material for a book? Wow, we had enough for 20 books!

Gachasmigas – Spanish Wintertime Recipe

Jan 16, 2014

plate-gachasmigasGachasmigas is a specialty of the region of Murcia, using few ingredients and prepared on wet and windy days in the winter. A big pan of gachasmiga can feed a group of 30 or more people. Serve it with winter fruit or vegetables, figs, grapes, oranges… basically whatever you fancy!

Whilst gachasmigas is a dish that has few ingredients you do need to be quite fit to make it – you need to keep stirring till it’s cooked. It’s one of those dishes that warms you twice – once when you make it and once when you eat it!
