Barcelona bound?


He's from Barcelona! Well, Catalonia, anyway. So who better than top Melbourne chef Frank Camorra to take you by the arm and walk you through this vibrant, exciting city?

Even better, he does this in collaboration with award-winning food writer Richard Cornish who provides text and most of the stunning photography. As Camorra says in the Introduction "this was a job way beyond one man and his liver" so he teamed up again with Cornish and away they went.

So much more than just a guidebook (although this small volume is better at the task than many) MoVida's guide takes readers into the back alley cafes and tiny hidden bars as well as the hot and happening places.

It's a very personal account by two friends who quite simply love Spain and Spanish food - and in this case the tastes of Barcelona especially. Every place has been visited, dishes tasted and assessed by people who know the cuisine intimately, and the details faithfully recorded and put together in a guide that will be as indispensible as your appetite in this city of a thousand flavours.

This mouth-watering collation of restaurants, cafes and tapas bars, cocktails, markets and cookery classes will have you confidently exploring this magical city.

Comorra and Cornish, Gracias!

MoVida's Guide to Barcelona, Frank Camorra & Richard Cornish, The Miegunyah Press, August, 2011, hardcover, rrp $32.99.
