Here are some links to reviews and articles about the book Recetas del Campo – Spanish Village Cooking
Delightful new cookery book is a compilation of local recipes from the village of La Murta… from Novelist Joan Fallon
Joan’s husband, Ray, cooked the Murcia meat pie – have a look at the review and photos. Joan is a novelist and writes with a Spanish theme, see my review of her book Loving Harry.
The book is clearly laid out in Spanish and English, so it is easy for a foreigner to identify the ingredients they need to buy in the local supermarket. There are plenty of photographs of the dishes, always a good way to tempt the cook to try something new.

I could “read” the region’s geography in the recipes… from Cookery Book author Janet Mendel
Janet Mendel, author of numerous Spanish cooking books, cooked 2 of the recipes from the book.
The cooks of La Murta seem to be specialists in all types of sweets—puddings, desserts, cookies and cakes—for this section of the book is the longest of all. There are photos of many of the recipes by Marcus Jenkins. These are especially helpful in picturing how a dish should appear.
