Explore the art and joy of Spanish food, language, and culture with your family. This vibrantly illustrated bilingual cookbook collects 30 of the most classic, traditional Spanish dishes—from tapas to paella—and optimizes them for your whole family to cook and enjoy together, along with notes on Spanish culture and suggested menus for your next family fiesta.

With an emphasis on fresh ingredients and hands-on preparation, notable Spanish chef Gabriela Llamas presents recipes for tapas (small bites) and pinchos (skewered bites), meat and fish, vegetables and salads, as well as sweets. Each left-hand page in English is mirrored in Spanish on the right and food terms are called out bilingually throughout, creating the perfect format for language learning.  

The special introduction for children explains that Spanish hogar means not only "family house," but also "the hearth"—where the fire is. The kitchen, the spiritual center of the house, is the perfect place to learn about the rich sharing culture of Spain.
Prepare with your family:
  • Vegetable Cocas, Spanish pizza
  • Chicken in Pepitoria, a traditional dish dating back to the Middle Ages
  • Cold Vegetable Soup, one of Spain’s most universal dishes
  • Torrijas, Spanish French toast
With this interactive cookbook and cultural guide, your child's imagination and creativity will be sparked, as will your deeper connection with them.

Also available in this series: Let's Cook French and Let's Cook Italian.
