Spanish Ingredients

Posted in Spanish Ingredients

Spain has seen a succession of cultures and the Iberian Peninsula has left a lasting mark on Spanish Culture: Spanish Language, music, art, architecture and of course, Spanish Food. In fact, many people are surprised to learn just how much of a delicious melting pot Spain really is.

Spanish Ingredients

The basis of the history of Spanish Food has to do with its geographical situation. The country is located on the Iberian Peninsula and is surrounded by water. Naturally, due to this fortunate location, seafood forms one of the pillars of Spain's gastronomy and categorises the country as having a Mediterranean Diet. The American-Mexican connection was to have a great influence on the lifes and times of the Spanish People, and on their cuisine, as did the occupation by the Moors. As each majestic galleon returned from the New World, its cargo revealed seeds and seedlings native to southern and central America to plant on home soil. Sweet & hot peppers and tomatoes thrived, destined to become the focal point of Spanish Cooking. Already, almond groves proliferated which were introduced by the Romans and loved by the Moors, and also sugar cane, oranges, grapes and saffron. Many different dried beans, some native others imported, began to make a significant contribution to the diet. The simple cuisine of roasted meats, grilled seafood's, ollas (stew pots) filled with game and local verduras (leafy vegetables) incorporated the New Ingredients to begin the evolution of the cuisine that continues today as classic Spanish Cooking.
