The Spanish party dinner table is always full! Depending upon the time of year the table will be loaded with seasonal, local, fresh produce – for example, peas or broad beans just picked from the fields, fresh oranges scrumped from the groves or during a matanza, recently produced sausages. You’ll also find sliced meats and cheeses, tomatoes, olive oil, nuts & maltreated olives and plenty of chunks of bread. This is just to pick at before the food arrives!

If you want to try the menu yourself, here are the recipes:
