Spanish cooking

Last friday my mum and I followed an evening class Spanish cooking with Maria in Warnsveld (near Zutphen). We had lots of fun, and a lovely dinner. PICTURES. It was just a small group (only 4 people) so we had to work very hard. We smelled lovely afterwards, because the spanish kitchen uses a lot of garlic. We made: fried broccolli/courgette, stuffed tomato, spanish omelet (tortilla with eggs and potatoes) and french toast with tomato-tapenda. For dessert we had baked bananas with sugar, liquor, and ice-cream. I think I need a balanceweek. Next class will be 29 januar.

This is one of my favorite recipes, very easy, very healthy, very tastefull. I tried it yesterday at home. And I'm not great cook, but even I could do it.
- 1 french bread
- 1 big or 2 small tomato
- 100 gram Serrano ham/bacon (Spanish bacon)
- 3 table-spoons of olive oil
- salt and pepper
- 1 piece of garlic

Cut the french bread in slices of 1 inch (2 cm). Cut the tomatoes and garlic in pieces. Put the olive-oil, salt, pepper, tomatoes and garlic in a bowl. Make a sauce with your blender. (Taste it, to know it's oke). Butter the tapenade on the bread, and on a top a little piece of serrano-ham.
If you want you can first toast the bread in the oven.

Oh it looks like you had great fun! And really you are lucky the class was so small, so you got to participate yourself! Lekker!

The Tilda 'bodies' are very cute, of course. They look like they were a lot of little sewing. Very nice.

3 months. . . . hmmmm. :-)

I hope you are willing to cook a Spanish dinner while visiting in Seattle(and invite me). After my recent trip to Spain, I am fan of all things Spanish.
