There are many people who are enthusiastic about food—the cooking of it, the preparation of it, the serving of it, and let’s not forget the eating of it. But Andrew Delaplaine is the ultimate Food Enthusiast. This is another of his books with spot-on reviews of the most exciting restaurants in town. Some will merit only a line or two, just to bring them to your attention. Others deserve a half page or more. “Exciting” does not necessarily mean expensive. The area’s top spots get the recognition they so richly deserve (and that they so loudly demand), but there are plenty of “sensible alternatives” for those looking for good food handsomely prepared by cooks and chefs who really care what they “plate up” in the kitchen. For those with a touch of Guy Fieri, Delaplaine ferrets out the best food for those on a budget. That dingy looking dive bar around the corner may serve up one of the juiciest burgers in town, perfect to wash down with a locally brewed craft beer. Whatever your predilection or taste, cuisine of choice or your budget, you may rely on Andrew Delaplaine not to disappoint. Delaplaine dines anonymously at the Publisher’s expense. No restaurant listed in this series has paid a penny or given so much as a free meal to be included. Bon Appétit!
Eat Guides: Barcelona is about good food. Too often travelers in Barcelona end up at mediocre restaurants eating overpriced meals. As locals living in the city, we’ve been there, and wanted to do something about it. Eat Guides: Barcelona features forty of our favorite places, spotlighting eateries and bars we have tried and tested many times. We’re not food snobs. We’re not chefs. We’re two people who love to eat and drink. We rarely order a glass, preferring the bottle. We always get appetizers. Often, we’re the last table to leave. Our aim is to offer a little something for everyone. We cover high-end venues with the same affection as the cheapo mom-and-pop joint. The majority of our recommendations are affordable restaurants for the average traveling Joe. We focus on regional Spanish and Catalan restaurants in our guide, but you’ll also find international options serving Japanese, Indian, Thai, American, Italian, and more. We know what a drag it can be to travel with food allergies or as a vegetarian, so we’ve selected a few spots that cater to these folks, too. We believe that everyone deserves to eat well, no matter your budget, restrictions, or beliefs. Our guide is informal and personal, offering more than a blurb and a street address. These are our experiences and our stories from chowing down in Barcelona. We hope they give you insight to our lives here, while inspiring you to taste and savor all the Catalan capital has to offer. Eat. Drink. Be Merry.

Barcelona barely has time to take down the bunting between its rollicking festivals — when there isn't an all night fiesta happening on the street, there's more likely a party on the beach (only 10 minutes away) and never any shortage of action in its clubs and bars. Gentler pursuits are also myriad: the city's museums have got it all covered from Picasso and Miro to perfume and an outstanding aquarium. Its galleries are among the most avant-garde in Europe, and its history writ large in the churches and perfectly preserved medieval alleyways of the Barri Gotic. Time Out's local journalists give travelers the inside scoop on where to stay, eat, shop and what to see. Suggested day-trips to coast, country, and city are also included.

The health care reform debate in the United States raises many complex issues including those of coverage, accessibility, cost, accountability, and quality of health care.

Other topics discussed in this volume include health care price transparency; private health insurance and estimates of individuals with pre-existing conditions which range from 36 million to 122 million; expiration of the health coverage tax credit and how it will affect participants' costs and coverage choices as health reform provisions are implemented; trends, vulnerabilities and recommendations in personal care services; and traditional versus benchmark benefits under medicaid.
'Food is not what you cook, but what you make others taste.' Joel Serra Bevin was born in New Zealand and grew up in Tasmania. Inspired by his Catalan great-grandfather, Papa Serra, Joel moved to Barcelona where he has immersed himself in his much-loved Spanish food and cooking. Joel brings a vibrant, fresh approach to traditional Spanish dishes. He is obsessed with new flavour combinations, unusual preparations and loves to create magic for whoever joins him around the table. These eighty recipes offer both a beginner's guide to eating and drinking like a local in Barcelona and Spain, with fresh takes on Spanish favourites such as Fideua with Squid Ink, Allioli, Pulpo Gallego and Leche Merengada, as well as plenty of inspiration for those looking to experiment. While not stinting on classic dishes for those new to Spanish food, Joel also reinvents Catalan classics such as Membrillo-Roasted Pumpkin with Almond Cream, and Green Gazpacho with Sumac Yogurt. As Joel says, 'Food always tastes better when shared, so pull up a seat and join the feast.'
