How are you doing folks? We start July with an ideal recipe for summer. I bring you another one of those recipes that is part of the childhood of most Spaniards. A simple recipe, fresh and with surprising flavours.
Melon with ham has become a benchmark in Spanish cuisine and is very common in beach bars and restaurants when the heat arrives.
Considering its origin, we can locate it in Italy, where combinations with ham, salami or mortadella were made back in the 16th century. A century later it crossed borders and came to Spain, where we have adopted it as our own production and internationally it is believed that it was our idea. In the 19th century, melon with ham was part of banquets, with personalities of the time, this becoming a refined dish and praised by the best palates.
Today I present you an interpretation of the dish that I have been making for years as starter and people love it.
I hope you will try this beautiful an easy-to-do Tapa. Believe me, this fresh and healthy starter is something incredible.
Love for the product, take care of the technique, elegant execution, and above all, nature and environment respect, are my values as a professional.
It is a pleasure for me to invite you to discover the best dishes and ingredients of Spanish cuisine.

Hola amigos! This week I bring you one of the most famous Spanish Tapas. A starter full of flavor is easy to find any time of the year in most Tapas Bars and "Chiringuitos" around the country.
This week I bring you a recipe from Portuguese gastronomy. A very traditional dish that I have tasted on my latest vacation, and it conquered my palate. But before I start cooking, I would like to tell you a little more about the origin of this excellent rice dish.
Its nature, beaches, people, and gastronomy have made Portugal one of the world's most popular tourist destinations. That's why this week I went on holiday to this vibrant country, and I would like to show you some of the delicious things I have eaten and the beautiful places have visited.
