Late one night, I was surfing through the channels and ran across a Discovery Channel, wait, maybe it was TLC…hmmm, anyway, they were covering cuisine in Spain. Settling back with a glass of cab, I was slowly starting to drool. It was around 2:30 a.m. or so, I called C up and said, “Did you know that they have these “societies” that all they do is get together, cook, eat and drink?!”
She groggily and casually responded, “Yes. ”
I said, “We need to go!”
Giggles on the other end.
The men took turns in the kitchen creating these incredibly simple and beautiful looking dishes, and the whole event lasted all night long. It’s kind of a joke at my house, that my dinners take 5+ hours long. Hey, I think it should be that way, friends, food, wine and conversation. That’s where it’s at! Oh yeah, back to Spain. So…I’ve been on the look out for Spanish style dishes and I’ve tweaked out some of my own. Well, here are 3 dishes that I recently tried from a Tapas Book I found in the bargain shelving at BN.
