I recently rediscovered what is surely the most lovely cook book on my shelves, a gift from co workers a few years back, 1080 Recipes. This tome of Spanish dishes is illustrated throughout with whimsical drawings by Javier Mariscal.?I posted some of my favorites over at Rotating Corpse.
Simone and her daughter Ines Ortega are the authors and this book has been a kitchen staple in Spain for decades. I became available in this handsome package only two years ago in the US.
