The documented existence of the caramelized almonds in Alcalá de Henares, 35 km northeast of the nation's capital, dates back to the 18th century although it is probably Arab in origin and as such these garrapiñadas (the Spanish name for candied almonds) would date much further back. You can buy the garrapiñadas at the stores but there’s nothing like buying them from the Convent of the Poor Clares of San Diego in Alcalá, probably the nearest thing to the candied almonds’ birthplace. The garrapiñadas are exquisite. And so is the experience of buying them at the Convent.

The French national anthem played as a filmed video took viewers to sumptuous sites in Paris. It was the apéritif of the coming Summer Olympics 2024. One could only hope that the accursed pandemic will just be a nightmare that will have been long forgotten by the time the Pairs Games come around – but for the lessons that will have been learned. In fact, that’s the mood and promise at the Eiffel Tower last Sunday.
