Isla is the first comprehensive cookbook to capture and celebrate the cuisine of Spain’s Mediterranean islands Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera. With influences from the Spanish mainland regions Catalania and Valencia, and from further afield including Sicily, Sardinia and the south of France, Isla invites you on a culinary journey to discover some of the Mediterranean’s most authentic cuisines that are at once familiar and unique.
With stunning food photography showcasing the coastlines and interiors of these historic islands, stories on traditional recipes and 100 simple and authentic recipes, this book is not only for lovers of Spanish food but any fan of Mediterranean cuisine.
Alongside these authentic recipes are beautiful spreads on local ingredients, cooking secrets and dishes that have rarely been shared outside this part of the Mediterranean. Each chapter celebrates a different landscape – think mountains, the coast and humble villages. This spectrum of flavor and soul is indicative of the food (and incredible lifestyle) from the Spanish islands.
Emma Warren moved to Spain in 2001 and immersed herself into the colorful world of Catalan cuisine. While living there she split her time between Mallorca and Barcelona, before returning to Melbourne, Australia, where she now enjoys working with national food icons like Matt Preston and Karen Martini. Emma is also the author of The Catalan Kitchen. This is her second cookbook.
