Andaluz: A Food Journey Through Southern Spain, by Fiona Dunlop


Hardback – 248 x 190 mm – 304 pages

Over 300 full colour photographs

Andaluz is a cookbook that bridges past and present in southern Spain. For nearly eight centuries, Moorish rule in Andalucía brought about a cultural revolution, resulting in architectural splendors like the Alhambra as well as a rich culinary history. Andaluz is a quest to illustrate the legacy of the Arabs and Berbers in contemporary kitchens through recipes from 21 cooks and chefs. 

Couscous, rice, aubergine, oranges, figs, apricots, marzipan, and a wealth of spices are just a few ingredients inherited from this key period – along with meticulous agricultural techniques. By digging deep into traditional dishes, scouring markets, and learning from home cooks, local tavern owners, and Michelin-starred restaurant chefs, Fiona Dunlop offers a vivid gastronomic window on this region.

Entries from her travel diary, photos of daily life, profiles of chefs and over 100 sumptuous recipes bring the entire region alive – from Granada in the east to Córdoba at its heart and Seville in the west, from sierra to sea. With beautiful food and location photography Andaluz is bound to become the cookbook you will visit time and time again.

Fiona Dunlop is a food and travel writer, blogger, and photographer. She is the author of three cookbooks – New Tapas, The North African Kitchen and Mexican Modern – as well as National Geographic’s guides to Spain and Portugal.

Fiona Dunlop does it again and brings us a region’s essence. This time it’s the turn of semolina crumbs from Almeria and almond sponge cake from Antequera. She sums up Southern Spain – a pivotal meeting point of religions and cultures – and avoids trends and fashion. Andaluz gives the confidence to find the area’s best sun drenched dishes and cook them too.
