GREAT ITALIAN CHEFS’ RECIPES, 10 best Sicilian dishes

This site, Great Italian Chefs, is worth looking at. It is part of the Great British Chefs website and on this site you will find information about  some of the different regions of Italy and regional recipes.

The recipes are ‘great’ and are by professional chefs.

I too have posted many of these recipes on my blog and a passatempo – pass-the-time, a diversion, you could compare their recipes with mine.

Spain equals tapas –a flourishing industry since the Middle Ages. There are plenty of other delights to be found in Spain, but food is always a large part of my enjoyment and a priority anytime I travel  .

I have been too busy to write a post about the fabulous prepared tapas-type foods that one can easily buy at Markets in Spain.

And I am not just talking about the classically simple to complex small plates of goodies found in Spanish bars, restaurants and tavernas, but of the ready – made delicatessen type goodies to take home.

Wine is so cheap in Spain (in comparison to Australian wine) so on a number of occasions it was easy to buy some ready made ingredients and drink good wine in one’s hotel room, or as in our case in Madrid in an apartment which came with excellent cooking and serving facilities.

The Spaniards know how to have a good time!
