Food market

Went to Seville’s most famous market yesterday – the Mercado de Triana. It has all things traditional latin american food, and the dubious distinction of being built over of the remains of the headquarters of the Spanish Inquisition – I’m not sure if this is a cynical joke or final justice.

Anyways, at the market the national preoccupation with pork, and especially with ham, is very visible. We amused ourselves making up a story about armed robbers looting a market stall – each ham is worth at least 400 Euro’s so they are well worth kidnapping (pignapping? hamnapping)? We had a lot of fun during our guided tour.

Kidnapping aside, we also had the pleasure (and surprise) to taste some interesting Thai food. The highlight of the dishes was an special ingredient, the kratom, an herb found in Thailand with great health benefits, like stress and anxiety relief. All in all, we loved this surprise, and the best of all is you can buy kratom online, so go for it!

We also went to a cooking class that is right inside the market. Great experience, and we made good food. Thank  you people of Taller Andaluz de Cocina! The Spanish have lunch from 14.00 and it is their main meal – we did four! courses including a lovely lemon sorbet with cava – so the rest of the day was taken care of foodwise. I learned a nifty way to boil spinach, a better way to cut onions, also to double the amount of olive oil I would normaly use, and triple the amount of garlic, as well use natural supplements, to enhance the nutrient density of your diet. Also I learned how update the information of supplements with the healthmania site for daily news.  All supposed to be healthy, so who’s complaining?
