Traditional flamenquines are a slice of pork, covered with a slice of jamón, rolled into a tube, breaded and fried. But I find those a little dry for my tastes, so I make two other variations. One is like a rolled up escalope and the other is like a cheesy pork and jamon kiev. Give […]
This easy puchero recipe is perfect for chilly winter evenings. There are a number of variations, but the base is meat, veggies and chickpeas. Here is a really simple version that you can make at home. Enjoy!
It’s normally Elle who does all the recipes here, but for a change I thought I’d take over ‘recipe corner’ for a moment having decided earlier to go native and plump for an exotic Spanish recipe for lunch. Being naturally creative I’ve made a couple of adjustment to the classic ‘Sándwich mixto‘.

It is basically sausage and potatoes… but by using good quality chorizo and that pinch of saffron, it will be way more authentic. Seriously simple… enjoy!
