Traditional Spanish food is unpretentious and simple. It
is the subtlety of flavourings and combinations of ingredients which
make it very special, sometimes truly inspired.
Cooking in Spain today is still largely the fare of the pueblo kitchen,
only the utensils and methods of buying ingredients have changed.
Once provisions arrived by donkey from nearby fields and fishing
ports, now they arrive by refrigerated truck from all over Spain
- and indeed from across the World. Culinary cross - fertilisation
is nothing new in Spain, it goes back certainly as far as the Phonecians
who landed on Spain's Mediterranean coast and brought with them
Mojama - an air cured type of tuna. The Romans are thought to have
introduced olives, figs, grapes and wine. The
Moors and the Arabs who controlled much of the Iberian peninsula
for some seven hundred years contributed greatly, not only by introducing
rice and sugar cane along with a host of previously unseen fruits
and vegetables, but also by creating complex irrigation systems
enabling previously hot barren land to grow crops. The discovery
of the Americas brought potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, chillis, beans,
avocado and chocolate. Gazpacho the Moorish cold vegetable soup
didn't become so well known until tomatoes came from the New World.

This is wonderful at any time of day, we have it
for breakfast at about 10, or as a snack or starter.
You will need:
- A day old barra (french stick)
- A peeled clove of garlic
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Fresh tomato
Slice the barra lengthwise and toast until golden,
then rub the toasted side with the garlic clove
all over. Take the tomato and slice in half and
rub vigourously over the toast. Drizzle lots and
lots of olive oil onto the toast let it soak in
and enjoy! Some people like to sprinkle a little
salt on too.
