Traditional Spanish cookbook with no pictures

I’m looking for a traditional Spanish cookbook of the kind that’s been around for like 100 years with new editions being published every now and then. There is such a cookbook in Austria, it used to be a part of the curriculum in housewives schools. It holds really many recipes, some of them very simple too, and the somewhat older/cheaper editions don’t include photos of the dishes. This is what I’m after - some traditional recipes that work, but with no or almost no pictures. This way I’ll have to learn harder for my food :grin:

Hola Irina,

Cuando yo era chico, mi mama usaba el libro de Doña Petrona como referencia. Aqui hay un link adonde puedes verlo

Muchas gracias for this suggestion, Gaby! This is exactly what I had in mind. I managed to find an e-book version of it. The printed versions don’t seem to be easily available here apart from the older editions that are priced in thousands of $! :scream:

Great book, thanks!
