Spanish Regional Dishes

Posted in Spanish Cuisine

Today Spain is justly proud of her Regional Cuisine and it is well recognised for that. It is sad but true that many people who visit Spain for a holiday return home with the impression that Spanish Food is not particularly good and has little identity of its own. This is because the hotels and restaurants catering for tourists naturally wish to please everyone and offer an International menu, which though acceptable, usually lacks the flavour and character of the real cuisine.

Spanish Regional Dishes

This is a great pity because Spain has a good deal of character. Spanish Cooking is robust and simple, but highly individual. It is firmly based on old-established Regional Cuisines, using fine local ingredients – delicious sausages and smoked hams, fresh fish, excellent Extra Virgin Olive Oil and a wide range of superb fruits, fresh vegetables and dried pulses – with the generous use of garlic, herbs and spices. The spices are mostly of Moorish origin. Spain is a diverse terrain made up of mountain ranges, lush pastures, fertile farm grounds, extensive coastlines and more, which together provide quite the variety of fresh products. Spain's famous hams are cured very high in the mountains, vineyards and olive groves sprawl across expanses of land, and fresh fruits and vegetables hail from throughout the country. The best way to savour real Spanish Food for yourself is to visit a bar where you can enjoy Tapas. These saucer-sized portions of delicacies of all kinds, served with a glass of wine, are a delightful Spanish invention and an ideal way of sampling many different dishes.
