Hola from rural Andalucía and welcome to my website and blog.

You are probably here because you like food in which case you will be as well to bookmark this page so that you can return for recipes, ideas, a wry smile and maybe even inspiration.

I love cooking with herbs and freshly ground spices in a relaxed and unhurried manner. Food should be cooked with a little love even when cooking for one, don’t you think?

Enjoy my posts – you can find recipes and food related items by choosing a tag on the right hand side of the page. Select Reflections to view My Andaluz patio musings and if you are after details of a 32 day rail trip around India then that can be found by clicking Trainspotting which is also in this section.

You can follow me virtually by way of my blog, Twitter, Facebook and other social media but if you want to experience real Spain in person then I can offer Cookery school and Walking the Via Verde located under Visiting or call by if you are passing – there’s always a chilled something in the fridge and the view from the roof terrace is fabulous. Just fabulous.

This is a work in progress so please be patient but I am getting there. And don’t be afraid to leave feedback but leave the fff’s to Gordon Ramsey please.

Hasta Luego!
