    Papa's beer-braised chicken

  • joanhuguet  on  2/9/2017 at 3:50 PM

    I"m interested in the salted rosemary ice cream, and really all of the dessert recipes. Most tapas cookbooks do not include sweets!

  • lebarron2001  on  2/9/2017 at 3:54 PM

    I am salivating after reading the index. The Chicken Paella sounds really good.

  • cora429  on  2/9/2017 at 6:01 PM

    Asheville is one of my favorite places to visit so I've been lucky enough to eat at the restaurant several times. The eggplant with rosemary and honey is amazing and would be the first thing I cooked.

  • Moniquelfp  on  2/9/2017 at 6:10 PM

    Might be a tie between Brandada de bacalao and Clams with chorizo in cider

  • amandacooks  on  2/9/2017 at 7:24 PM

  • t.t  on  2/10/2017 at 6:39 PM

    They all sound good, but I've always wanted to learn how to make my own chorizo...

  • sgump  on  2/10/2017 at 9:32 PM

    I agree with the tortilla Española, in part because I typically have the ingredients on hand. I'm sure the recipe calls for A LOT more olive oil than I'd regularly use . . . but, then, that's what makes it so good.

  • hippiechick1955  on  2/10/2017 at 11:01 PM

    Mushroom croquettes. I'm dying for some right now!!!!

    I made Lemon-Rosemary Chicken with Potatoes and Apples because I had those ingredients on hand. It was very good although took much longer for the chicken to reach the 2 temperatures given in the recipe.

  • motherofpearl81  on  2/12/2017 at 11:13 AM

    I am a huge fan of mushrooms so I will go with Mushroom croquettes.
