FOOD & DRINK

| Wines and Others |

When considering the normal day for a Spaniard it is surprising how much of it is occupied by the act of eating. Food is taken seriously and is very strongly linked to every form of social entertainment. As this act is so often partaken in public it is no wonder that that foreigners can be forgiven for the very false impression as to quality of Spanish productivity - when compared to northern Europe the Spanish nation can generally be taken as a very hard working population.

The quality of Spanish food encountered by tourists has greatly changed over the last 40 years in its preparation and presentation. This generally accepted improvement has been due to the increase in availability and range of products, and coupled with the exposure to foreign tourism even the diet habits of the Spanish have been somewhat effected.

However, in making this statement it is very important to remember that this change has not caused any loss of quality in their many excellent traditional regional dishes which they continue to be proudly preserved in content and preparation. Below is listed a variety of the more popular food a tourist may encounter that also includes many of the regional specialties.
