Spain Is Delivered On A Plate In The Latest Dish

Dish is celebrating the arrival of spring with a decidedly Spanish flavour. For the first time, New Zealand’s most beautiful food magazine has devoted an entire issue to a particular country, and Spain is the perfect choice, given the tremendous popularity of its cuisine right now.

Food talk everywhere invariably turns to Spain. From the sweep of tapas across the globe to the distinctive foams and spherifications that began at elBulli restaurant, chefs and home cooks worldwide are enjoying the unique tastes of the Iberian Peninsula.

Editorial director Catherine Bell and food editor Claire Aldous travelled to the region specifically to research the new and rediscover the traditional. The result is more than 40 superb dishes, plenty of delicious stories about culinary Spain and informative pieces on ingredients, wine and sherry. Photographer Nicola Edmonds was with them and her beautiful images appear alongside the recipe and stories.

“I’d like to acknowledge our collaboration with the Spanish Trade Commission and Spanish Tourism,” says Bell. “The enthusiastic participation of these organisations indicates the importance with which they view New Zealand as a trading and tourism partner.”

Dish #20 will be available on news stands throughout New Zealand from 22 September.
