KIRKUS REVIEW

The author has chosen to embed her Basque recipes in a series of tolling renditions of life with the family who created and operated the hotel, Martin's Espanol, in San Francisco, a mecca for lovers of Basque cookery. If you leap over these puddles of sentiment, however, the recipes are unusual and rewarding. Definitely for gourmets and experienced cooks, this is not for someone unused to the delicate requirements of handling the slippery incursions of olive oil. Light, subtle, fastidiously assembled, Basque food is rewarding but needs a light touch, which this ""story"" has not.
