About the Author

MARINA CHANG is a native New Yorker. She majored in fisheries and natural resources management at Cornell University, where classes in wine, food, and their origins served as a springboard for her lifelong interest in the world’s cuisines. The many years spent in multi-cultural areas, growing up in New York City, and living and working in Hawaii for eight years, sparked Marina’s curiosity about the amalgamation of cultures and evolution of regional cuisines. Marina has traveled extensively with her husband, Craig S. Harrison, in Africa, Latin America, Europe, Asia, and North America, focusing on the native wildlife, investigating local markets, and learning about the food characteristic to each region. The rich history and culinary complexity of the areas surrounding the Pyrenees have repeatedly lured Marina and Craig back to this region to eat and learn about the traditional country dishes, as well as cutting-edge cuisine that indicates future trends.

Marina furthered her experience in wildlife management issues working on federal environmental legislation for 10 years, in positions with the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and Mayor Rudy Giuliani and the City of New York. After having lived and worked in Washington, D.C. for 13 years, during the creation of this book, the author and her husband moved to Sonoma County, California, where they currently reside.

Format: Hardcover
The Pyrenees region blends both French and Spanish cuisine and culture, offering dishes which are a product of different cultural traditions. Both traditional and modern dishes from the region are included in Tastes Of The Pyrenees, Classic And Modern Range from Catalan Beef Stew and Oxtail Stew to Lobster and Rabbit with Lemon Butter. An excellent survey of changing Catalan food styles emerges. No photos, but the dishes are relatively easy to reproduce and don't need them.

I enjoyed that these recipes don't take all day to prepare, yet they are very authentic. The history of the region, wines and cultural influences are all addressed in this book as well, it's more than just a bunch of recipes! A nice addition to my cookbook collection.
