Sponsored Video How to Make Potato Piglets - Spanish Tapas

I just love these cute Potato Piglets with Cinco Jotas ham (shown in the video below) a mini Master Class video by with Three-starred Michelin Chef Pedro Subijana of the world renowned Akelarre restaurant in San Sebastian.    

They are perfect as part of Spanish tapas and although they might seem a tiny bit time consuming, the video is easy to follow and they can be made at home.   Potato puree is prepared and in a series of drying it out in thin layers, and then by re-hydrating it again to make it pliable the potato is rolled out like pastry, cut into pig shapes and deep fried for a few seconds which produces lovely fat puffed up potato pigs!

Patatas Bravas with Chicken and Chorizo

Oh my word you must give this a go, it was truly delicious.  Armed with no recipe whatsoever but knowing Patatas Bravas was a potato dish with a spicy tomato sauce I went for it.  

Okay, I've since discovered the potatoes ought to have been roasted or fried in olive oil - but hey ho this works and tastes good, so who cares!  Spanish Recipe Patatas

Fancying more than just potatoes I added chicken and chorizo - always a winning combination in this house.

Marinated Peppers - Healthy and Delicious

Did you know a large red pepper contains three times more vitamin C than an orange?  In fact peppers in general contain three times more Vitamin C than oranges and other citrus fruit.  A red pepper contains twice the Vitamin C of a green one, and ten times the Vitamin A - how marvelous is that?!


Now, there's nothing quite as nice as a roasted or grilled blackened pepper - not only does it make them easy to peel but it brings out their natural sweetness and they taste amazing.
