If you think of Spain, you think of Jamon, Tapas, Paella and of course, Chorizo! This cured pork sausage is world famous and rightfully so. It's full of flavor and a staple food in my house.Marthinus Strydom
Spanish chorizo is known for its rich red colour and tangy, smoky flavour, equally delicious eaten in slices as tapas or used in cooking to give wonderful depth to a bean stew or egg dish. Chorizo in its present form has only been enjoyed in Spain for the last few centuries, as its main flavouring spice, pimentón, or smoked Spanish paprika, was introduced to Spain in the sixteenth century from the Americas by the explorers and conquistadors.
Spain, a country on Europe’s Iberian Peninsula, includes 17 autonomous regions with diverse geography and cultures. Capital city Madrid is home to the Royal Palace and Prado museum, housing works by European masters. Segovia has a medieval castle (the Alcázar) and an intact Roman aqueduct. Catalonia’s capital, Barcelona, is defined by Antoni Gaudí’s whimsical modernist landmarks like the Sagrada Família church.
