It’s mid-November and I’m more than one month in to my second year here in Sevilla, España. I’ve been wanting to update my blog for a long time now but there is just too much to catch up on! So, I’ve decided to start again, with a new Spanish food blog that will focus above all on Spanish food and wine.
Introducing Spanish Sabores
Living abroad was difficult at first because of the lack of variety in the grocery stores and of good ethnic restaurants. However, I have come to appreciate this initial drawback in many ways lately. First of all, I love Spanish food and the mediterranean diet. It’s very similar to how my family cooked growing up (with the exception of the whole fish and cold soups of course!)
Not having a Thai restaurant in Seville forced me to try cooking Thai food, which, although not an amazing success, was far from a failure. Overall, I’ve grown a lot in my skills as a home cook.
When I have a craving for something not Spanish I have to cook it myself. This makes me appreciate it more, spend less money, and I continue learning new cooking techniques. I also eat a lot less processed foods and know exactly what is in my dinner! (If you think you know what is in your restaurant food, read here: http://eatocracy.cnn.com/2010/11/01/55-chef-josh-grinker/)
What you can expect
Follow me on Facebook for updates about new posts. I’ll be talking about Spanish food culture, Spanish recipes, and travel in Spain, as well as my frequent international travels, where eating is usually at the top of the agenda!
Thanks for following!
