Take advantage of the fabulous food that is available in Andalucia. Many towns and villages still have the municipal markets where you can buy fresh fish, the Andalucians are into their fish, meat and game, the Andalucians major on chicken and pork, vegetables, many grown locally, and fruit. The Andalucian diet is well known to be the healthiest diet in the world. The foundation of the Mediterranean diet is vegetables, fruits, herbs, nuts, beans and whole grains. Meals are built around these plant-based foods. Moderate amounts of fish, dairy, poultry and eggs are also central to the Mediterranean Diet. And let us not forget olive oil, that essential ingredient that is so much better for you than animal or milk fats.
Every month, in Andalucia, different fresh vegetables are in season. These recipes are all based on vegetables we have grown in the kitchen garden.
