Croquetas! Who doesn’t love them? In Spain they are, after a tapa de Jamon, the absolute kings of Tapas, and every bar or restaurant has them in the menu.
There are several types, but it comes down to Croquetas de Jamon (Ham Croquettes) or Croquetas de Pollo (Chicken Croquettes). It’s not an easy recipe, but if you have leftover chicken and want to try them, this is the recipe, enjoy!
I have to say that this time the result was specially amazing, they tasted so good… and lasted so little….
This is a super recommended recipe if you have family or friend visiting and you want to surprise them with a Spanish Classic.Read More
Hi tapas lovers.
Maria and myself just came back from walking el Camino de Santiago (primitivo route). During such an amazing trip we made very special friends and shared plenty of Tartas de Santiago. To them, our new “Familia” and to all the Peregrinos of the world, we want to dedicate this post and this recipe, the authentic stuff. From Spain with love.Read More
One of the amazing things of living in London is to see (and taste) the adaptation of certain Spanish dishes to the English Culture.
One of the results of such combination is the “Chorizo Roll” that you can find in plenty of Spanish stalls in street food markets al over the country.
There are not two equal Spanish Tortillas (or how we call them “Tortilla de Patatas”). Each one is different: some put onion, some put a little bit of garlic, some people put milk! Some will cut the potatoes in dices, some in cubes some in slices… well, it’s been hard to figure out what way is the best. That’s why lately at home we have been mastering the art of Tortilla Making. As someone said “Making a Spanish Tortilla is simple. Making a great Tortilla, is not!”.Read More

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.Read More
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!Read More
