The Basque region borders France and Spain on the Atlantic coast and My Basque Cuisine contains over 100 of the Basque Country's and Northern Spain's gorgeous dishes- some Ash cooked on Masterchef and others that are family favourites and signature dishes. Within the pages of this sumptuous book you'll find recipes for hearty soups, warming fish stews and salads, piquant tapas, fabulous vegetable dishes and mouth watering cakes and desserts.

Written for the home kitchen, most of the recipes included here are simple to prepare and need no specialist equipment. Ash has put emphasis on good quality fresh produce and traditional cuisine.
