Paella & Tapas

Paella & Tapas

Chorizo in Cider

The thing I miss most about Spain is going out for a few drinks, some tapas, doing a bit of bar hopping. The most you get in this country is a bag of crisps or nuts, or a kebab on the way home. I usually console myself by having a few tapas before going out, or having a party with tapas and a bunch of friends. These dishes are also great for lighter lunches or Sunday brunch.

Chorizo with Potato

A delightful Tapas dish can be served as a light lunch with a side salad, a side dish or as a Tapa.

Galician Pork Pie

These big hearty pies jumped the boundaries of Galicia many decades ago and are now available all over Spain. I remember my early trips to Madrid, where many bars and shops would compete to produce the best. I love the ones made in a paella pan. The most authentic ones always had some cornmeal in the pastry.

Paella Valenciana

Paella with Jamon, Chorizo & Wild Mushroom

A hearty, robust paella for those cold nights.

Piquillos Stuffed with Morcilla

This is a meaty filled piquillo served in a smoked cheese sauce.

Quick Fabada Asturiana

This Fabada uses tinned beans to make a delicious quick supper.
