tapas y tal

  • use Spanish olive oil, I use ev olive oil when I cook as I do think it makes a difference
  • the best ev olive oil I've found is Montes de Toledo, if you see it, I recommend you buy it, as it's difficult to come by - well it is in the Cotswolds
  • don't be shy with the olive oil, it's an essential part of la cucina over there
  • & if you have a core in your garlic, remove it, it is bitter and indigestible - tip from my landlady in Spain, Ester
