Paella

Hola !

It’s been a long time since I posted anything, but since I got back from my summer holidays recently I thought I would  keep the Summer spirit going.

Even though it’s October and cold, but let’s face it Mediterranean food always brings a little sunshine to our lives even with this awful weather.

So I had a little get together this week and made Paella,  in attempt to raise everyone’s spirits and keep the holiday mode for as long as possible.

I love Paella it’s not very time-consuming , it’s great for sharing with friends, it’s healthy and most importantly delicious.

Take a look at the video, make the Paella, share it and enjoy 🙂

Spanish food vs British food – Interview

Hola ! , this week I had the opportunity to interview someone who is familiar with both the Spanish and British food culture.

Her name is Heather Perez ,59 , a teacher ,who is originally British but lives in Madrid.

She has been living in Spain for an amazing 37 years , so if there is anyone that would know a bit about Spanish food , it would definitely be her.

She was attracted to the beautiful country after visiting a friend , and after enjoying her time there she decided to move permanently.

Off course she said the weather ,lively people and culture made her fall  in love even more with it.

Some of her favourite Spanish dishes include , Paella and Tortilla , and her British favourites are Broth , fish without the chips and Mushy peas.

Take a look at the interview and enjoy 🙂

Tortilla de patatas

Tortilla de patatas

I just love making this recipe , especially in the summer. I mean lets face it a hot summer in England is rare , so when it comes around the last thing you want to be doing is spending it in the kitchen.

The reason I love this Tortilla de patatas so much is because , after spending most of the summer eating barbecues when the nice weather is out , I get a bit fed up so this makes a nice change and is easy to digest too.

To maximise the taste of it add a nice ice cold drink :).

Here are the steps:

1-  Wash and peel all your vegetables.

2-  Then dice them.

3-  Then fry your diced potatoes.

4-  Meanwhile the potatoes are frying , crack 4 eggs into a clean bowl.

5-  Then add your chopped onion.

6-  To that add the chopped chilli and salt and black pepper.

7-  Then finally add the parsley.

8-  Then mix all the mixture for a good 1 minute.

9-  Leave the mixture for a bit , while you prepare your frying pan to put it in.

10- Make sure the frying pan is on high heat and add a little bit of olive oil to it.

11- Then pour in your mixture along with the potatoes you fried earlier.

12- Leave it for 6 minutes , then flip it over and do the same to the other side , to ensure its well cooked.

Then tada you have a delicious Tortilla de patatas to enjoy !
