Spanish Flavors

Tender pork flavored with rosemary, white wine, and pomegranate juice.

Antonio Banderas. Penelope Cruz. The architecture of Antoni Gaudi.

Sangria. Cava. Tapas. And melt-in-your-mouth Iberico ham.

I love all things Spanish.

When I spied the new “One Pot Spanish” (Sellers Publishing) cookbook by Spanish cooking authority Penelope Casas, it brought back delectable memories of my trip to Spain long ago, when I got my fill of seafood paella, briny olives, and bracing gazpacho.

Casas’ newest cookbook is filled with dishes easily made at home, including marinated chickpeas with capers and red pepper; lentil soup Madrid-style; and grilled fish with anchovy-caper sauce.

Enjoy my review of the book, and the recipe for pork tenderloin in pomegranate syrup at

    The pork looks very tender, sounds like with some changes to increase the flavor of the sauce this could be an excellent dish.

  2. 2

    For some reason, I always thought Spanish food will be rather laborious to make at home, with a lot of expensive ingredients (think saffron). I’ll be very interested to see how this cookbook brings Spanish cooking to the regular kitchen.

    Mmmm, that pork tenderloin looks soooo good. Add some eggs and I’m calling that breakfast!

    That meat looks ¨flavorful, tender, juicy and cooked to perfection!

    Another time pork tenderloin on the screen makes us want to try cooking it!

    This looks delicious, but for me, when I think of Spanish flavors, I think of Jose Andreas. I love his restaurants and his cookbooks are fun too.

    Wow, I’m ravenously hungry all of a sudden!

    I love grilled pork tenderloin. It lends itself very well to a variety of marinades. Yours is particularly mouth-watering.

    So funny. I just gave a tapas class on Saturday night and used Casas’s Tapas book. And today I posted about empanadas!

    That pork looks divine. I am off to check out your post about it!

    And thanks for the tip about the Chirashi. I often order it when I am out and never think to make it at home. I think I now have dinner plans for later this week :-)

    I’ve bookmarked the recipe! It looks so succulent from your photo and the recipe so straigthforwardly delicious. And half the fun will be in deciding which complements to serve with it!
