IDEAS AND RECIPES / IDEAS Y RECETAS - Jose Romero
Ideas and recipes between cuisine and pastry by Jose Romero
Only nonconformists seek new paths. It is not about questioning anything, but it is about adding, contributing and growing. The Pastry School of Barcelona has been, continues to be and will be that, a pastry school, and possibly one of the best internationally. But while being a school of pastry, for some years it has been more, much more. It is an education center open to any culinary manifestation. And a clear example of this spirit is the very author of this book, a cuisine chef and passionate for pastry, jams, bakery, viennoiserie…
All these sweet and savory disciplines converge in José Romero. He assimilates what most interests him and he goes down a new path between cuisine and pastry. There are many names which we might call this segment of culinary creativity. They are tapas, snacks, savory pastry pieces, catering… Maybe it’s a bit of all of that, and that’s exactly what Romero, in collaboration with the director of the School, Olivier Fernández, has expressed in this book.
Octopus, focaccia, egg and sardine; foie, pizza, risotto and watermelon; a mango mayonnaise, an onion brioche, bacon puff pastry and beet gazpacho; and some parmesan fritters; and fried plantain lollipops; and marinated tuna with…
Simple and creative ideas and recipes that taste like Barcelona and the Mediterranean, and a bit like Mexico and Panama; proposals that depart from the conventional without losing it. A delightful book which awakens your taste buds with just leafing through it, compelling us to cook, even those who are neither cooks nor amateurs.
