I go to a Spanish cookery class on a Wednesday and I thought this a really simple idea to accompany the olives and crisps when entertaining. Simply buy a couple of jars of chickpeas that are in water, drain them and rinse well. Pat them dry with kitchen towel then fry in a little olive oil with salt and pepper and a little garlic salt, just serve like you would a bowl of peanuts, they are really tasty.
This Sunday I visited a restaurant in Las Palas for the first time and I just wanted to recommend it. Its called Meson Madera, and really friendly. The food was excellent, good atmosphere and we were not rushed from our table. Three courses, extra gravy, always a good sign, and real fresh veg which was in a serving dish to help ourselves. It cost €12 and included wine. No I dont have shares in the place, I wish I did. You should book and their number is 968 159 688.
If you add lemon juice to the water when you are stewing apples it will stop them from going brown. For tastier cooked mushrooms in an omelette or pizza or just fried - sprinkle them with lemon juice and salt and let them stand for about 15 minutes before using them. Anyone else got any tips on the use of lemons?
