Yesterday, I dug out my holiday photos & remembered...
...the wonderful fish, the sublime olives & the beautiful, local wine in Cordoba (Montilla).
|Black Rice with Calamari|
My top three favourite foods were;
The Moorish potatoes, basically sauté potatoes & a sauce that my taste buds told me was a mix of mayonnaise, turmeric, cumin, garlic & seasoning. Unfortunately the excitement that this dish inspired in me resulted in my inability to take a decent photograph of it. So instead I've substituted a photo of aubergines & honey...
I also became rather partial to the lettuce hearts with olive oil & lots of garlic. It is not only delicious but pretty thrifty & easy as well. (not a brilliant photo but you get the idea...)
My winner in the desert section, was without doubt, the 'fig thing'. Translated from menus as a fig biscuit served with frozen yoghurt, it was actually more like frozen fig ice-cream. It had chopped dried figs, crumbled biscuits, nuts, spices & honey (?) mixed in ice-cream & re-frozen. The accompanying frozen yoghurt was really sharp & 'live' tasting. It was an amazing combination! (I'd also like to try the frozen yoghurt with shredded mint & lemon balm leaves)
|Not too sure about the red stuff though...|
