MADRID,May 27, 2019 – Across Spain has introduced its latest Gastronomy packages to let you experience first-hand Spain’s world famous gastronomy and discover the rich flavours of its traditional cuisine.
The gastronomy of Spain is immensely rich and varied, just like the country itself. With a wide variety of top quality ingredients to choose from, old traditions and recipes combined to create new quality concepts and an incredible level in cooking skills – it is no surprise that Spain is at the top of culinary excellence in Europe.
The history of Spain’s beautiful cuisine has a lot to do with the country’s geographical location. Due to being located on the Iberian Peninsula, it is almost entirely surrounded by waters. Naturally, this advantageous location makes seafood one of the pillars of Spain’s gastronomy and is the cause of the country’s generally Mediterranean diet. Over the years, Spain has always been influenced by different cultures passing through or settling. However, it was the Moors who have most impacted Spanish cuisine during their centuries of reign. They introduced fruits and light seasonings into the Iberian diet, as well as combinations of fruits and nuts with meats and fish.
Some essential Spanish cuisine includes going out for tapas. Widely thought to have been started in Seville, the way to enjoy tapas is to go to a bar with a group of friends and share a few different tapas with some wine or beer. Or why not try some paella? The most famous Spanish rice dish, there are many varieties. However, the people of Valencia (the famous paella city) will tell you that the two ‘true’ paellas are the paella valenciana (made with chicken and rabbit) and paella marinera (with many types of seafood). Moreover, you can’t come to Spain without trying the famous tortilla española. A simple yet vital part of Spanish gastronomy; it can be served hot or cold, as a meal or a tapa, on its own or in a sandwich.
