Not only does food and drink taste amazingly good in Spain but it looks so enticing too! Gastronomic traditions are respected here and great thought often goes in to the appearance, ceremony and overall presentation of food. Catering professionals can spend years learning the necessary skills that we often take for granted so we thought we’d highlight just some of the artistry that we appreciate in Spanish Gastronomy and have been enjoying along with our clients since we set up Totally Spain in the year 2000.
You don’t need another blogpost about Spain’s typical or most famous dishes but we do want to share our checklist of 10 unmissable dishes in Spain and when, where and how to order them! You see we’ve been planning itineraries throughout Spain since the year 2000, so here at Totally Spain we’ve learned a lot about the Spanish dishes that people expect to eat but can’t find or even worse – don’t enjoy. And we’ve added in a few dishes that our clients have enjoyed eating but wouldn’t have ordered without a tip-off from us.
Great weather, amazing beaches, superb historic and luxury hotels at great prices, great transport connections, sumptuous formal dining in world acclaimed restaurants plus mouth-wateringly good tapas prepared in the tiniest of bars – Spain really is a fantastic location for a honeymoon. At Totally Spain we’ve been planning customised trips into Spain & Portugal for the past 16 years and here are our thoughts on planning your perfect honeymoon in the Spanish sunshine!
Like the sound of a gastronomy tour but not sure what it involves? We outline one of our tours in Seville to give you a sense of what actually happens and answer some of the queries we receive from our clients before they embark on their first foodie tour.
Our clients have been known to “splash out” on certain things when travelling in Spain but equally love finding a bargain or getting a bit more bang for their buck. We thought we’d put together a guide to Savvy Savings in Spain to make it easy for everybody to find great value for money when on holidays here.
Totally Spain has been planning custom trips around Northern Spain since we started out in the year 2000. We set up our business from Vitoria in the Basque Country and were soon bowled over by the interest in this beautiful yet quite unknown part of Spain. Today we are still based in Northern Spain – living and working in Cantabria. Because we plan trips for all of Spain and Portugal we often don’t get to write enough about this superb region – it’s been ages since we posted What to See in Northern Spain. So here is our shiny new Insider Guide on What to See and Do in Northern Spain.
