The Food in the Madrid Area of Spain

I realize I haven’t posted much about my thoughts on the food here in spain so far. I just get so into actually EATING the food that I forget to take a photo. Well here are some pics to make your mouth water a bit. Also, a short list of some of my favorite Spanish foods so far.

Jamón, fuet, chorizo, tortilla [very similar to a fritatta with eggs and potatoes and jamón (or other ingredients) in a sort-of ‘egg pie’], TAPAS (all different kinds of small plates of food (see pics below), croquettes [filled with mashed potatoes with jamón, chicken or cod].

Homemade Paella from one of my hosts. This was delicious. It was rice and seafood including prawns, calamari/squid, a bit of chicken, etc. AWESOME.
