The Food of Spain: A Most Intricate Gastronomic Tapestry with Claudia Roden


Wednesday, June 8, 2011

Claudia Roden on "The Food of Spain: A Most Intricate Gastronomic Tapestry"

Perched at the tip of the Mediterranean, like a sentry guarding the vast Atlantic ocean, Spain was for millennia the final western stop for Phoenicians, Romans, and Muslims, while, to the north, the majestic Pyrenees have funneled Goths, Franks, and others into the Iberian peninsula. Spain's extraordinary geographic diversity and its dramatic patchwork history result in a land of breathtaking gastronomic diversity. Claudia Roden will focus on the historical influences that produced a unique, colorful, and sensuous cuisine where every dish holds memories and stories of the past.

Claudia Roden has spent a lifetime studying the foods and cultures of the Near East and Mediterranean, and is the author of many cookbooks, including "A Book of Middle Eastern Food," "A Book of Jewish Food" (James Beard Award winner), and, most recently, "Arabesque: A Taste of Morocco, Turkey, and Lebanon," winner of the André Simon Memorial Award, the Glenfiddich Best Food Book Award, and the Gourmand World Media Special Jury Award. This lecture celebrates the publication of Roden's latest work, "The Food of Spain" (HarperCollins).
