The basis of the history of Spanish Food has to do with its geographical situation. The American-Mexican connection was supposed to have had a great influence on the lifes and times of the Spanish People, and on their cuisine, as did the occupation of Spain by the Moors.

Sweet and hot peppers and tomatoes thrived, destined to become the focal point of Spanish cooking.
