“Even a fried egg has its secrets,” says Marijo Jordan, who over the three years that he has been writing for the Comer de La Vanguardia portal has detected more than a thousand mistakes that we make without knowing it in front of the kitchen. In this volume 27 basic preparations of traditional cuisine are collected from first courses, fish, sauces or soups. “With them we learn the mistakes we usually make and we are improving,” says the journalist, who directs her book to both foodies and neophytes.

Some of the mistakes that have most surprised this journalist specializing in gastronomic issues is the complexity involved, for example, in preparing good patatas bravas, which must be crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Also the field of pastry, where exact measurements are key to preparing any dessert.
