Travelin' with the TMax: 15 interesting Spanish dishes
Baby eels, chorizo in cider and squid cooked in its own ink – Tim Maxwell eats them all as he makes himself at home in Navarra, Spain.
Two weeks after moving to Spain, I could tell I was gaining weight. I couldn't help but try every new food that I saw and everyone around me was enabling this behavior. These are the 15 most interesting things I've eaten while living in Navarra, Spain.
This is a pretty broad category of foods that many below fall into, but pintxos is the word used in Navarra and Pais Vasco for tapas, which are small dishes, usually served at a bar. There are so many kinds and very few that I haven't liked.
2. Chorizo cooked in cider
Chorizo a la sidra is a simple recipe – take some chorizo, cook it in cider, then eat it with bread – but it makes one very tasty meal.
So, anyone who has ever been to Spain has had sangria, but if you find yourself in the south of Spain, you are likely to have the opportunity to try tinto de verano – chilled red wine mixed with soda water. Grab a glass and relax on the beach or somewhere in the sun.
