Editorial Reviews

Review

The paperback's strengths lie in Otal's tips ("The plancha must be very hot or the food will stick to the surface." and "Oil the surface of the plancha before heating. Do not use butter " and "Avoid using a knife directly on the plancha" to avoid damaging the surface, etc.) and simple recipes, from marinades to meats.--Judy Hevrdejs "Chicago Tribune ""

I ordered this before it was published on my IPad. It is a great both for summer and fast cooking. I bought the griddle and this book for me, my daughter and as a wedding gift. I had been in Spain for a couple of months and this griddle is is really is really used outside on a BBQ. This book has recipes for how to use it, how long to cook items, and many marinades and sauces.

"Plancha: 150 Great Recipes for Spanish-style Grilling" by Liliane Otal ($21, Surrey Books, 176 pp.) is about a method that makes use of a metal slab heated over an flame. You and I may call this a flat-top and further point out that you can find one of these in every Waffle House, but this book focuses on the Spanish use of creating great grilled dishes from the plancha.
This book is pretty straightforward. After a brief introduction that brings the reader up to speed on a Spanish plancha (and why it is different from that Waffle House flat-top), the book goes right to the recipes. While most of the selections have full-color pictures of a finished dish, the pages are just the recipes themselves. No stories, no explanations on techniques, no sidebars (although some recipes do include a line titled Serving Suggestion with some supporting information). But it doesn't matter because cooking on the plancha isn't overly complex by any means. The emphasis is on ingredients over complicated techniques. After the introduction, the book has chapters on Sauces and Marinades, First Courses and Vegetables, Fish and Seafood, Meat, Poultry and Desserts. And that's it. It's so to the point that maybe it should have had a page that says, "Now go get a plancha" so that a surprised reader doesn't wonder what to do next after such an abrupt finish.
Speaking of that, a true plancha may be a bit difficult to find. Certainly anything can be found online if you're willing to pay the shipping from Timbuktu, but be forewarned that you might not be able to walk into your local big box discount store and find a plancha on the shelf. But when you browse these recipes and see the pics, you'll have plenty of inspiration to go looking for your own plancha.

The plancha recipe book contains great easy recipes for using the plancha. We use it constantly and have given this edition to a friend as a gift. If you are into healthy eating and like the Mediterranean style of cooking in the grill, this book will make it easy for you.

The book is a fair representation of Plancha grilling. However, most of the recipes are very plain - such as grilled shrimp - and have nothing to do with Spanish-style cooking or with grilling in general. Not worth the money - even if you purchased it for cheap.

What an awesome cookbook! The recipes are easy to follow and the photos help to envision the end result. This book is a lucky find for those, who are reluctant to try Spanish foods. The pictures will make you drool, they look so delish. I can't wait to try a dish or two or all. Get this book while it's free!

I love Spanish cooking and find grilling with my plancha easy and fun. So I'm really enjoying these Spanish recipes for using my cooking "toy"

I just got Francis Malmann's fantastic Seven Fires: Grilling the Argentinian Way, and am all fired up - so to speak - about getting into plancha (or chap) cooking. I figured this book would be a worthwhile companion.

Unfortunately, it just....isn't. Seven Fires is ten times the book at only twice the price; it teaches one just about everything they need to know about plancha cooking, and there's really no reason to own this instead. If you're not an adventurous cook and need a recipe to follow, you may enjoy the variety in here, but I personally rely on a cookbook to teach me techniques and approaches and best practices. There's very little of that in Plancha - no background or context or wisdom, no stories or experience, just recipe after recipe.
