Tapas Revolution was the Mail Online's Food Book of the Week!
"His (Omar's) stated aim is to demystify things, making tapas an everyday option that can be rustled up from easily available, inexpensive and store cupboard ingredients. In this he succeeds triumphantly, with a collection of 120 mostly approachable recipes that take you by the hand and seduce you with their flavours, directness and simplicity. Virtually every page has something that says ‘Make me’ - from moreish nibbles, such as toasted bread with garlic and tomato, to brilliant eggy dishes, deeply flavoured stews, easy chicken suppers, inventive vegetable dishes, and fish dishes that conjure up outdoor restaurants overlooking the Mediterranean." more..
