Taste of Spain

These photos will have you begging for tapas! Sit back, pour yourself a glass of sangria and get ready for a mouthwatering look at some of Spain’s most delicious cuisine.

 If there is one thing the Spanish love, it’s their jamón ' shown here, hanging on racks ready for purchase!

Much Spanish cuisine is heavily influenced by the locally available seafood.

 Calamares fritos (you guessed it, fried calamari) is a common Spanish tapa.

 Glasses of refreshing gazpacho soup, a chilled and blended mix of tomatoes and other raw vegetables.

 An assortment of Spanish olives, some of the most flavorful in the world.

 Tortilla española, or a Spanish omelets; is a traditional dish made with potatoes, eggs and olive oil.

Jamón serrano, chorizo and olives are universal Spanish favorites, common in all regions of Spain.

 Flan de huevo al caramelo, a caramel-topped Spanish dessert.

 Chocolate con churros — hot chocolate and strips of fried dough. But don’t think this is like any other hot chocolate & it’s so thick you can rest your spoon (or churro) on it!

 Arroz con leche, a Spanish rice pudding.

 You can’t forget Spanish sangria’s; but watch out for that fruit! It’s loaded with more wine than you think.
