We all enjoy some good Spanish cooking, but few people realize how much of traditional Spanish ingredients are actually from other countries. Tomatoes are probably the primary ingredient in Spanish cooking. Many of the recipes in this Spanish Cookbook call for ripe, luscious tomatoes. Tomatoes were brought to Spain from the New World by the Spanish Conquistadors. These same seamen also introduced saffron and paprika to Spain.
Beans, used in many Spanish dishes, are from the Castilian region. Chorizo, the national Spanish sausage, finds its way into many dishes, including those in this Spanish cookbook. These traditional Spanish ingredients go perfectly with the adopted ingredients from around the world.
Spanish cooking is probably best known for its mouthwatering paella and its wonderful tapas.
