Need assistance in locating a Spanish language cookbook

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Greetings -
I have been searching online trying to locate a cookbook on Paellas - no luck so far in finding a source. The book is written in Spanish, and is titled "100 Paellas and 1 Fidehua." I have read excellent reviews on this book in regards to 'authentic' paella, and would like to track down a copy. Any assistance in obtaining a copy would be greatly appreciated. As another option should this search fail, I would welcome any suggestions on other cookbooks that may serve my needs - I really enjoy classic paella, cooked over a fire or on a stovetop, to get the mandatory crunchy rice layer on the bottom of the pan (the oven cooked versions just don't suffice for me.) I will continue my searching, but hopefully one of you can help me out. Thanks in advance.

I'm UK based and the one place I know of does have a Spanish source listed:-

100 paellas y una fideuá - AbeBooks

At the very least - you'll see the title/author etc. as they have it: 100 paellas y una fideuá

The bookseller does quote overseas rates:-

100 PAELLAS Y UNA FIDEUÁ. Recetario de paellas comentado, argumentado y por fin ¡bien explicado!: MÉNDEZ-TRELLES, Ignacio / CANTÓN, Ernesto. - AbeBooks - Librería Cajón Desastre

Use the 'Bookseller and Payment Information' tab to see rates.

I don't speak Spanish, so I can't follow further, good luck.

There is another book with great recipes called "Paella" by Penelope Casas.

"1080 Recipes" has recipes from all over Spain. ( The Spanish cooking Bible )

Once again ChefTalk has my answers!

Hello Petals -
Thanks very much for the book titles - I am familiar with, and have used recipes from both.

Hello Andydude -
I owe you big time - your link to the Spanish bookstore was exactly what I was looking for (I'm at a loss as to why my online searching did not find that bookstore.) I have already sent emails to them to confirm the book condition - they have it in stock, and reasonably priced, even with international postage. Thanks!

As an update...

Alas Andydude -
The bookseller notified me that since the book is 'overweight' (a mere 1.25 Kilos,) they needed more money for postage. My total cost for a book costing around 14 British pounds then jumped to 54 British pounds?!! That's no longer cost effective for me, so I'll explore other options for a 'definitive Paella' book.
