Expatriate Insurance News: Madrid 'is wonderful for Spanish cuisine'

An expatriate living in Madrid has written of his culinary experiences of Spain in his blog.

Ben Curtis, editor of Notes from Spain, said the great thing about Madrid is that it is easy to find good cuisine from every other region in the country.

"The quintessential Madrileno dish is Cocido – a bowl of rich pork broth for starters, followed by a main dish of chickpeas, cabbage, and meat," he wrote of the food traditionally made in the Spanish capital.

"Despite being so far from the sea, Madrid is also famous for its seafood, and the ‘gambas’ (prawns) are always worth a try," the expatriate recommended.

It is worth steering clear of the trendy areas that guide books usually send travellers to in search for food, as there is "a vibrant, young crowd in the Malasana neighbourhood, with a wealth of both modern and more traditional bars to check out," Mr Curtis added.

Spanish food is receiving a warm welcome in the UK, with London’s Regent Street recently hosting a Taste of Spain event that brought giant paellas, flamenco and medieval food markets to people visiting Britain’s capital.
