SAN ISIDRO: 10-15 May. See the complete programming!
Don’t forget that paella is a rice dish whatever delightful ingredients you mix it with. Therefore, rice takes center stage. Having said that, think Bomba or Sollana rice, virgin olive oil, enamelled pan, firewood or gas stove, feeding straight from the pan. Now you're ready to get ready for the party!
GUIDEPOST REPRINT: “SUMMING UP THE SPANIARDS, AN ACCOUNT OF HOW SOME FAMOUS TRAVELLERS HAVE SEEN SPAIN,” 3 OCTOBER 1969 — (3) Food & Culture »
While for Gautier Spain was a stamping ground in which to delight in voluptuous sensibilities, for Ford it was a vast storehouse of culture and customs, a veritable way of life with which to whet his erudition and invigorate his body. Dumas spent his whole trip in Spain trying to palliate his gourmet’s taste.
I am anything but Spanish and perhaps that's why I can be somewhat objective about the way Spaniards tend to be depicted, saddled as they are with "topicos tipicos" that tend to arise in a discussion about Spain: flamenco, bullfight, tapas, paradores nacionales. . .
There’s very little people around the world don’t know about “touristic” Spain. And so I’m amazed that many visitors are still amazed that one could have quality vacation in Spain cheaply. Especially when we’re talking about eats!
Contrary to most of the stereotypes linked with Spain, most countries see the Spaniards as tolerant, reliable, democratic, pacifist, honest, strong, humanitarian and hard-working!

Our top choices for paella in Madrid, arguably the second home to the Valencian dish. ¡Buen provecho!
Summer in Madrid won’t be summer without the fiesta of the Virgin of La Paloma. The feast falls on the 15th of August but as is typically Spanish the celebration lasts days. Thank god for this inexhaustible capacity to have fun without even trying! The focal point of the festivities is the historic barrio of La Latina, presumably Madrid’s most castizo (genuinely Madrileño) district.
