Are you planning a trip to Spain and want to know what’s in their cuisine?
Good ham is part of Spanish heritage, and no self-respecting tapas bar in the country doesn’t have a huge leg of ham on its counter.
Churros are an infamous Spanish treat, and some of the best can be found in the Churrerías of Madrid.
Like a donut, these round little puffed sugary pieces of heaven can be found in just about any Madrid bakery.
Another one for fish lovers, bocadillo de calamari, is a sandwich filled with deep-fried calamari.
Although croquettes were first made in France in the 17th century, the Spanish made them their own.
One of the more traditional types of food eaten in Madrid, Cocido Madrileño, is a delicious stew made from meat, chickpeas, and vegetables.
This one isn’t for the faint-hearted. It’s a stew made with tripe (or blood sausage) served Madrid style.
