I can not say enough good things about Jose Andres and Made In Spain. Got the cookbook recently, and did a six course tapas style dinner last night. All dishes were simple, let the ingredients shine, and utterly fabulously delicious. Several photos at - http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=made%...

We had...

Stuffed Olives with Anchovies and Piquillo Peppers - what a combination, get some good green olives, good anvhovies, piquillo peppers, add some orange zest and sea salt. amazing!

Seared Piquillo Peppers with Roncal Cheese - so simple. so good.

Ensaladilla Rusa - this may have been the best dish, again so simple, basically a tuna and potato salad, topped with fish roe (got mine at IKEA!). the flavors in this and textures work so well together. super crave worthy. made with jose andres' take on homemade olive oil mayo (also so simple and so good).

Tomato and Murcia al Vino Salad - I dont know what made this so good - summer tomatoes, good cheese, a simple vinaigrette, but it all came together magically and far surpassed the sum of the parts.

Tortilla de camarones (shrimp fritters) - man, great stuff. shrimp. fried. sea salt.

Strawberries and Peaches with Red Wine, Herbs and Citrus Zest - i added the peaches, the red wine reduction with orange zest, lemon zest, and cinnamon is a thing of beauty and goes so nicely with fruit.

Again, watch the show, buy the book, you will be inspired and happy thanks to Jose Andres.
