Paella Makes for Perfect Patio Dining

Saturday April 19, 2014

Noodle Paella - Fideua (c) 2010Spring and Fall are our favorite seasons to host a paella dinner. Here in the west, we're taking advantage of this gorgeous weather to entertain and eat a nice meal on the patio. Instead of grilled meat, we prepare paella, or the lesser-known fideua, made with noodles - both typical of the Valencia region in Spain and equally delicious.

How to Cook a Perfect Paella Step by StepPaella is probably the most famous Spanish dish internationally, fideua is similar and perfect for those of us who prefer noodles. Neither dish is complicated, but they both require some preparation beforehand. Our recipes for these dishes are available in both text versions and step-by-step versions with photos. So, take it one step at a time and enjoy! Buen Provecho!

Good Friday Classic - Bacalao a la Tranca

Wednesday April 16, 2014

Cod Fish with Paprika and Potatoes - Bacalao a la Tranca

It's our last Fish Friday post for Lent this year... Bacalao a la tranca, or Salt Cod with Paprika and Potatoes is a regional dish from Zamora in the Castilla-Leon region. It is a popular dish for Good Friday. Since salt code needs soaking in water at least the day before to leach out the salt, start the process today. After being soaked, pieces of salt cod are fried, then drizzled with olive oil and sauted garlic. Serve with boiled potatoes and eggs. The salty flavor of the cod, combined with garlic and smoky paprika are rico.

ensalada mixta - mixed green saladThe menu we assembled for our Spanish Easter Brunch has a variety of breakfast and lunch dishes. Try adding one or two Spanish dishes to your brunch, or divide the cooking between family members. After all, who said YOU need to do all the work?!

Some of our recipe suggestions are Spanish omelet (called tortilla in Spain), creamy prawn soup, fresh asaparagus, Arab-style lamb or Canary Islands-style rabbit (salmorejo rabbit) and fresh mixed green salad.The meal needs a sweet ending, so add an almond custard-filled tort or Basque cake (pastel vasco). Enjoy all this delicious food with a glass of sparkling Spanishcava.
