Spanish Paella

FOREWORD : The Marvels of Spanish Cuisine

Spanish cuisine is for the daredevil foodies who love a blend of herbs and other aromatics to tickle their palates.

Its centuries-old kitchen secrets have developed a continental-style cuisine and mid-morning snacks seem to be the name of the kitchen games.

They’re big on lunch too, and their tables are always set with a variety of scrumptious dishes. Wouldn’t it be nice to be a part of the feast?

Well, the kitchen fairy has brought along the secrets of the pot-smacking Spanish cuisine just for you.

In Southwest Europe, Spain is encased by the Atlantic Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea, and Gibraltar, with its continental European territory the Iberian Peninsula.

Its capital and largest city is Madrid. Spain has a diverse mixture of cultures dating back thousands of years to Iberian, Celtiberians, Vascones, Occitan, Turdetani, Roman, and Celt people. These cultures have an extensive influence on present-day cooking.

Spain celebrates numerous festivals throughout the year, and its palate-pleasing cuisine is always a part of the celebrations. Spanish cuisine has an extensive history and is born from differences in climate, culture, and geographical aspects.

It is influenced by its shoreline as seafood is a huge part of its mouthwatering dishes. The coastal regions are known for their exquisite seafood dishes that consist of a variety of soups, fried fish, and rice dishes such as Paella.

The inlands of Spain are known for their cuisine, which consists of garlic, thick soups, stews, cheeses, bread, and traditional Spanish ham. The Northern coast of Spain or Atlantic Spain is famous for Asturian, Cantabrian, Galician, and Basque cuisine. These dishes include fish and vegetable stews, cured ham, and shellfish dishes.
