Status: New - The Yucatan Peninsula is home to one of the world's great regional cuisines. With a foundation of native Maya dishes made from fresh local ingredients, it shares much of the same pantry of ingredients and many culinary practices with the rest of Mexico. Yet, due to its isolated peninsular location, it was also in a unique position to absorb the foods and flavors of such far-flung regions as Spain and Portugal, France, Holland, Lebanon and the Levant, Cuba and the Caribbean, and Africa. In recent years, gourmet magazines and celebrity chefs have popularized certain Yucatecan dishes and ingredients, such as Sopa de lima and achiote, and global gastronomes have made the pilgrimage to Yucatan to tantalize their taste buds with smoky pit barbecues, citrus-based pickles, and fiery chiles. But until now, the full depth and richness of this cuisine has remained little understood beyond Yucatan's borders. An internationally recognized authority on Yucatecan cuisine, chef David Sterling takes you on a gastronomic tour of the peninsula in this unique cookbook, Yucatan: Recipes from a Culinary Expedition.Presenting the food in the places where it's savored, Sterling begins in jungle towns where Mayas concoct age-old recipes with a few simple ingredients they grow themselves. He travels over a thousand miles along the broad Yucatan coast to sample a bounty of seafood; shares "the people's food"at bakeries, chicharronerias, street vendors, home restaurants, and cantinas; and highlights the cooking of the peninsula's three largest cities - Campeche, Merida, and Valladolid - as well as a variety of pueblos noted for signature dishes. Throughout the journey, Sterling serves up over 275 authentic, thoroughly tested recipes that will appeal to both novice and professional cooks. He also discusses pantry staples and basic cooking techniques and offers substitutions for local ingredients that may be hard to find elsewhere. Profusely illustrated and spiced with lively stories of the reg
Advantages: Interesting history about the castle and the role it has played Disadvantages: Look for this book second hand, its RRP is expensive
...Matthew Parris and a small group of family and close friends bought a ruin of a castle called L?Avenc in the Catalunya region of northern Spain in 1997. This book is about the problems and triumphs he encountered whilst renovating it, the hurdles he had to jump through and the rewards of preserving the property as a monument to Catalan history.
The problems start early on, as a dispute...
Advantages: Reigning champions to win again Disadvantages: Packed midfield means little goalmouth action
...No European Football Championship winner has ever gone on to successfully defend the title. Indeed, of the last three winners, 2 have failed to get out of the group stage and the other was knocked out in the Quarter Finals. Current holders Spain are one match away from achieving this, with only Italy standing in their way. Despite the Italians having been more impressive since the group stage...

Review of Spain
Advantages: A unique and quaint hotel... Disadvantages: Lacking a few mod-cons...
...We stayed in this hotel for a few days while on a little tour of the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico, including visits to Cancun (don't bother), Playa del Carmen & Cozumel (much better) and the amazing ancient Mayan ruins at Uxmal, Chitzen Itza and Tulum. (I'll try and get round to reviewing all these later...)
We arrived by taxi from Merida airport (a short journey), having flown in from Cancun...
