spain-a food tour

i was recently in spain and i pretty much ate my weight in pastries and delights. here are some pictures of a few of my favorites listed with the cities i ate them in.

madrid - napolean chocolaté (one of the best things i've ever had in my life–and i'm not exaggerating)

toledo - a marzipan treat, i think it's called marquesas

toledo - another marzpan style delight, called panellets

granada - an almond tart (lots of almond confections in spain, by the way, delicious!)

granada - an apricot tart

car snack - a vacation favorite of mine - puffy cheetos

seville - almond cookies made by nuns

seville - i have no idea but it was delicious

everywhere - chocolate caliente con churros

barcelona - the best shawarma anyone has ever had, anywhere

Spain's wide range of geographical and climatic features have had strong influences on the food and cooking of this country. Spain was also, for centuries, several distinct kingdoms, with their own rulers, economic and social traditions, languages and cultural influences.
