Haven't seen it or heard of it until now.  Spent the afternoon googling 
which lead me to Colman Andrews book. I like the way he defines what is 
the area of Cataluna. Those of us who write about it kind of assume our 
readers know where it is, which certainly is not necessarily the case. 
Too I like his explanations about how Catalan cuisine is different. In 
Spain we hear all our lives: "Spain is different" but today we are less 
and less cognizant as to why or how as food products are available 
worldwide as well as cooking pots and pans.
Many thanks Emilio, that is a great find.
