After reading this book, you won’t have any more excuses not to cook.
Another cookbook you say? Well no, this is NOT another cookbook. We are facing a different, unique, unrivaled type of book: a volume that includes the best recipes from El Comidista, one of the best-known food blogs in Spain.
Fun, accessible, and full of different ideas. A passionate approach to cooking without gastronomic pretenses, but with plenty of carefreeness, curiosity, and a lot of humor. Cheap and easy dishes that will cater to both foodies and those who have never touched a casserole dish in their lives.
All recipes can be made at home and are written for the “clumsy“ or the ”for single-brain-cell organisms.“ It includes ”post-alcoholic“ meals, how to be ”posh for a day“ recipes, ”humiliate your colleagues with the tupperware“ or ”cheat by serving leftovers" recipes. In short, this is a book to take cooking lightly, with joy, and at the same time, experience good and simple dishes. Enjoy them, which is what life is all about.
Read Recipes by El Comidista and you will see that this is NOT just another Cookbook.
