Many travel and food tomes avoid politics assiduously Avoid too much controversy so as to sell books Anthony Bourdain blazed a trail many years ago now in giving people credit for their ability to think and their curiosity about the societies in which travel cooking and eating take place Bourdain wrote books and made TV shows in which he travelled to various parts of the world including those that have been affected by war and violence and investigated what people ate He smoked talked politics even shared a piece of wild boar anus and an ostrich egg omelette with Kalahari bush tribes It is no wonder therefore that Matt Goulding counts Bourdain as a friend and a source of inspiration for the company he set up Roads and Kingdoms that meld travel food and politics together in book and travel app format The presentation of the book might lead you to think this is just another semi coffee table book but with words Yes it comes with pictures and plenty of words Goulding travels to the nine regions of Spain and brings the reader in depth essays on the food history politics and culture of each region focusing sometimes on one thing per region The ritual of tuna trapping wrestling and catching in Cadiz the cave and shepherd communities also including Goulding's Spanish family of Granada and the women goose barnacle collectors of Galicia are just some of the topics he delves into The lack of food in Spain in the 1940s leading to all kind of 'povertymisery cuisine' in the wake of the Spanish Civil War as well as the diminishing catch in the Mediterranean today are all topics that Goulding addresses Plenty to read about and learn in this book including a tapas taxonomy and how to drink cider in Asturias The Trip in Spain should have read this book first

A book like Grape Olive Pig should carry a warning level and that warning level should say something like Do not read on an empty stomach I would also be inclined to add Make sure you already have a future trip to Spain planned Unfortunately for me I do not have a trip to Spain booked yet but this book makes me think that Spain needs to be a little higher up on my list This book is a exploration of all of the delicious food that Spain has to offer The author lives in Spain and is married to a Spanish woman He is from the United States but fell in love with the gastronomic culture of the country and treats readers to a first hand look at what makes Spain such a rich food culture In the tradition of shows like Parts Unknown with Anthony Bourdain who put his name on this book this book explores in a way that will make readers feel like they're right alongside of the author as he eats delectable seafood for a late night dinner and steaming hot churros for breakfast in the morningThe writing is soooo very detailed in the book and all of the detail leaps off of the page This is exactly why you can't read this book on an empty stomach The book is broken down by regions which really made me appreciate how different the menus and food culture is throughout Spain where people are inclined to associate themselves with region rather than country In addition to just talking about delicious food I really liked that the author included tips for traveling to Spain as well as profiles of various people associated with the food world in Spain This book is travel writing done right Goulding fully immerses readers in a new world where the writing is so detailed that you can taste the food and picture exactly what the world of the Spaniards looks feels and sounds like This was a true treat for me This book is the definition of what armchair traveling should feel likeThis is the second book in a series from Roads and Kingdoms a website that brings together travel food and culture The first book was Rice Noodle Fish which was an exploration of food culture in Japan and after reading this book I'm very excited to read the first book
