Food in Spain is great as most of it is locally produced and fresh.Its healthy as plenty of olive oil and garlic are used in lots of dishes.The choice of shell fish and fish is extensive and caught locally.Chicken and pork and peppers and onions are used lots too.The fruit used is normally grown locally too.So Spainish food is very healthy indeed.They say moving to Spain can extend your life by upto 10 years as the food and quality of life is so very healthy.

Favorite Dish: Hams and cheeses are also popular and worth buying.Tapas are also very popular.Most places do them.Cafes, bars and restaurants.They are a choice of small snacks on small plates.I found tapas a great way to try several things at once instead of having one big meal.I had one dish which was sausages cut up in a sauce with garlic.I also had a cheese and meat one and a garlic tuna one.They are good also as a light lunch or you can have them as starters if you wish.
Each area of Spain will have its own local specialities of tapas.You may get a tapas free with a drink in some bars.
