5 Great Things About Spanish Cuisine
1. Extra virgin olive oil
Also called liquid gold, olive oil is the basis of most Spanish dishes. It is rich in monounsaturated fats, which are beneficial for overall health - the cardiovascular system in particular!
2. Markets and seasonal ingredients
One of the gastronomic traditions in Spain is to do your shopping at least every week. This ensures people can cook with the very best products found in the markets like fresh and seasonal fruits and vegetables, high quality meats, and freshly caught fish. Using fresh and seasonal ingredients gives Spanish cuisine its unique flavor.
3. Delicious wines
Spain is famous for its wine and currently has a total of 70 Designations of Origin (D.O.) dedicated exclusively to this product. The ideal climate and terrain has resulted in a great variety of premium wines.
4. The famous tapas
Oh, tapas! These culinary delights, served in small portions are found in most Spanish bars, and are a true Spanish cultural experience. With Cookidoo®, why not try tapas in the comfort of your own home?
