Few countries in the world offer the diversity of cuisine as Spain. Because of its geography, Spain offers a wealth of delicious fare including steamed seafood, braised lamb, wine-rich sauces, and the unique use of fresh ingredients and spices. A variety of dishes incorporate ingredients such as chorizo which is spicy sausage, lechazo asado which is roasted milk-fed lamb, cheeses, wine, shellfish, and fresh fish. Each region in Spain offers its own exciting and unique cooking styles from Andalusia's fried and battered fish to Seville's sweet pastries, from paella originating in Valencia to gazpacho native to Andalusia. No culinary tour in Spain would be complete without learning to cook Fabada Asturiana, a hearty stew combining the flavors of saffron, chorizo, pork, and white beans. For those seeking the height of culinary adventure, Spain offers an unparalleled array of cooking styles, recipes, and ingredients.
