In this advanced Spanish lesson, we discuss the enormous subject of the attitude of the Spanish to food. There is so much to say, we’ve split it into two and even then, haven’t scratched the surface of the significance of food in Spain.
Anyone who knows the English culture will know that if you want to have a conversation with anyone, you just have to bring up the weather. In Spain, you simply have to talk about food.
The Spanish love to talk about food. Even the men! However, listen to Gordon’s opinion of that! Any Spanish person worth their salt will be able to tell you the culinary specialities of all the major regions of Spain and will always have an opinion on food.
The Spanish truly love their food and want everyone to try it (and comment positively on it, too). They also enjoy talking about the processes and preparation that the food undergoes before it hits the plate. Their love of food is admirable and in our opinion, it’s wonderful that people can have such a passion and pride for their food and culture.
