Hey Barcelona, I’m here to eat all of your food

12 Feb

 

Well Barcelona, you win. I didn’t eat ALL of your food, but I’ll be back for more.

I’ve been to Barcelona once before so I didn’t do very much site seeing. This time it was all about the food (and beer). Spanish people definitely know how to do food right and I was there to take advantage of that. Here are a few pictures of my favorite meals.

Spanish Omelette. Rad.

16 Nov

Spanish food; my third love (italian food is first, my dog Charlie is second).

This recipe is actually pretty rad. I usually have eggs and potatoes in the apartment, so it’s an easy thing to whip up.

*Disclaimer: there is no real whipping involved. Sorry. 



Ingredients
  • 6 Eggs
  • 3 Large Potatoes – Peeled
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Optional: Spicy sausage – Chorizo is traditionally used
  • Oil – For Frying

Step 1: Cut potatoes in half, then into very thin slices – but not paper thin

Step 2: Heat a cup of oil in a medium frying pan. Toss in a piece of potato – if It sizzles, then it’s ready. Add potatoes and cook, adjusting the heat if necessary. If you poke a piece of potato and it easily breaks into two – then you’re good to go. Throw a little salt and pepper in there if you want.

Step 3: Drain the potatoes and put into a large bowl. Add the 6 eggs and mix together.

Step 4: Heat your pan with a few tablespoons of oil and pour your potato-egg mixture into the hot pan. Cook on medium heat for 4-5 minutes until the bottom is brown.

Step 5: This is the tricky part! Check out the video if you’re unsure about the whole thing. Loosen your omelette around the edges and bring to the sink. Place a very large dinner plate over the top of the pan. FLIP the pan over so the omelette is cooked side up on the dinner plate. Side back into the pan.

Step 6: Cook for another 2 minutes. Turn off heat and let sit for an additional 2 minutes.

ENJOY!

TIPS:
Don’t cut the potatoes paper thin – or else I’ll getcha
