I am so excited to travel the world with you and cook dishes from countries all over the globe on my new linky party: Food of the World that will be starting Sept 10th. Every second Tuesday of the month you get to link up the recipe you've chosen from the country that was selected the previous month. This way we get to explore different cuisines together!
I will take your suggestions for countries to visit, so please put them in the comment section of this post. I will try to select cuisines by season and produce availablity, but of course, we won't be able to do this every time.
Because it will still be warm in Sept. I'd like to being our voyage in sunny Spain. A country that is famous for it's tapas bars and of course, Sangria like I am sharing with you today. This Sangria was made with the Spainish equalivent to Champagne called Cava. It is delicious and refreshing... and a heck of lot cheaper than French Champagne.
Because it can be very warm during the day people tend to eat dinner fairly late in Spain. They may start their evening drinking and nibbling at Tapas bars and then settled down for a proper dinner of dishes like Paella, Spanish Omelettes, pork, seafood, and chicken mostly made with tomato and olive oil based sauces. The Spanish use a lot of peppers, olives, and other fresh fruits and vegetables in their cooking...
So enjoy researching Spainish cuisine and I will look forward to checking out what you cook come Sept. In the mean time check out one of these Sangria recipes. Mine came out a little pink because I decided to use Maraschino cherries in mine and I think I put too many. The original recipe is not quite as sweet.
This giveaway ends on Saturday so make sure you enter it today:
