36. Gerry Dawes's Spain: An Insider's Guide to Spanish Food, Wine, Culture and Travel

"My good friend Gerry Dawes, the unbridled Spanish food and wine enthusiast cum expert whose writing, photography, and countless crisscrossings of the peninsula have done the most to introduce Americans—and especially American food professionals—to my country's culinary life. . .” - - Chef-restaurateur-humanitarian José Andrés, Nobel Peace Prize Nominee and Oscar Presenter 2019; Chef-partner of Mercado Little Spain at Hudson Yards, New York 2019


Highly Recommended Book: Pamplona--Running the Bulls, Bars and Barrios in Fiesta de San Fermín by Ray Mouton.

I highly recommend Ray Mouton's Pamplona: Running the Bulls, Bars and Barrios in Fiesta de San Fermín is the best book you are likely to read on Pamplona, the Running of the Bulls and the foreign contingent who descend upon Pamplona in early July every year to watch yet another chapter in the extended living version of Ernest Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises.

Disclaimer:  Mouton was kind enough to use a few of my photographs in the book, give me some paragraphs as a contributing photographer and autograph a wonderful inscription in the frontispiece to my copy of his book, but none of that would make a difference if this were not a great book.  Believe me, from one who has been to San Fermín some seventeen times, this book is the real deal!
