Hi Tapas fans, how are things?

Few months ago we blogged about Pinchos and promised to do some Pinchos (or Pintxos) bar review. This weekend Maria and myself realized that we had a Pintxos Bar just around the corner: The Pix-Bar. So we decided to go for dinner and have a look. This is our review.

Torrijas an Easter classic recipe

Posted by on Apr 19, 2014 in Desserts, Recipes | 0 comments

Happy Easter everyone. Today we prepared a Spanish Easter classic recipe:  Torrijas, also called “Torradetes de Santa Teresa” in Catalonia. Torrijas are very similar to the French toast, but with the Spanish way of cooking.

This is one of my childhood favorites and it’s an easy and fun one to prepare. It’s meant to be a dessert but I’ll ahve them fro breakfast. So, still with the cinnamon smell at home, this is how to prepare them!

Canelones (“Canelons” in Catalan) come from Italy, but they have become a Catalan classic to the point that during the Boxing Day (Dec 26th, day of Saint Stephen) is the meal that any catalan family will have.

“La crema catalana” is one of the most famous Spanish desserts. It will appear in most of the restaurants menus, and chances are that yourself have got it many times in your visits to the Iberian peninsula.

There’s the French versions, of course,  the “Crème Brûlée“, but we will use the traditional catalan recipe, share by Santi from “Restaurant la Pepita“.

It’s super easy to prepare and super tasty.

Spanish Pinchos, everything you need to know

What are Pinchos

Pinchos translation to English would be “Sticks”. And that’s because “Pinchos” are a unique kind of Tapas made in the Basque Country, which are basically a slice of bread (like a Baguette), with something in the top of it and all crossed by a toothpick. That’s why they are called “Sticks”. Easy, isn’t it?
