Food is an important part of tourism. While asking travelers priorities during their trips, I have had people tell me before that food is absolutely not a priority for them. I get dissapointed when I hear that. Why? I am a foodie. I believe in Food as a way to understand a culture and the history of any destination, but in particular, Spain. The reason for that is the amount of influences in raw materials and techniques that our country has received over the milenia from cultures like the Jewish, Islamic, Roman, Greek, Germanic, Iberian, etc. Combine that with the influences of the Americas since the conquest and you have a complex food mosaic that give today world reputation to our cuisine.
