Editorial Reviews

Review

"It's about time we had a resource to help wade through all of the different Spanish and Latin American foods that are appearing in grocery stores and on menus around the country. Lourdes Castro is an ideal guide for anyone interested in broadening their culinary horizon."
 
—Mitchell Davis, vice president of the James Beard Foundation and author of Kitchen Sense
 
"It is with great pleasure that I endorse Eat, Drink, Think in Spanish. Lourdes seems to have her finger on the Latin pulse with this dictionary. This is the perfect guide to the rich culinary diversity that exists in Spain and Latin America."
 
—Cristina Saralegui, journalist and host of El show de Cristina and one of Time's "25 Most Influential Hispanics in America"
 
"Our food culture is suffused with elements from Latin America and Spain, yet so many food-loving Americans are left out of the fun by not understanding the terminology. This book will change all that by illuminating nuanced details across a wide range of cuisines. I am wildly enthusiastic about Lourdes Castro's Eat, Drink, Think in Spanish."
 
—David Rosengarten, author of The Dean & DeLuca Cookbook

Format: Paperback
I've been looking all over for a book like this. I have a pretty good command of Spanish, but none of my lessons have covered this level of detail about food, so I often get flummoxed by menus in the fancier restaurants in Spain. The book is pretty comprehensive -- not only covering types of fish, meat, and vegetables, but down to herbs, spices, and cooking methods. I bought it as an ebook so I can take it with me -- it's a very handy reference.

This concise topical dictionary is very useful. It covers a full range of Spanish culinary verbiage and is a fine practical guide for cooking Spanish and/or Hispanic dishes, or for cooking with Spanish speaking people. Straightforward and easy to use.

Folks, this book is very well designed and laid out but absolutely only of any use if you are interested in and located in the americas. It's utterly useless (thinner than an 8 year old sock) when it comes to spanish food and beverage in spain. Better spending the money on a data pack and using your iphone or such in Spain.

Just spent a couple of week in Spain. Very few of the food related words that I wanted to find were in the dictionary. I had better luck using Google on my iPhone. I wish I could get my money back.
