honey-ham-sticks-2-860x280-8094760

Honey ham sticks and figs really are one of those classic tapas recipes. The two go together like a good wine and cheese with such flavour that these little dishes are certainly Moorish. There are two basic ways to serve honey ham sticks, either with ham being sliced or diced (I prefer sliced). The first is certainly the more popular recipe but for a fresh summer flavour and providing you have a good quality ham then simply the two together with a glass of rose will gets those taste buds going! This tapas recipe is, no need to say, extremely popular in Spain but it’s becoming quite famous also in other Mediterranean countries.

spanish-almond-biscuits-with-honey-and-lemon-2-860x280-3539538

Almonds are an incredibly versatile ingredient that have been used in Spain for centuries, that’s why today we are going to make Spanish almond biscuits with honey and lemon. They are native to the Mediterranean climate region of the Middle East and spread along the shores of the Mediterranean into northern Africa and southern Europe during ancient times. Spain is currently the third largest producer of almonds in the world, behind Australia and USA. It was also the Spanish colonisers who first took almonds to the American continent after the discovery of the New World. Spanish almonds are of outstanding quality because of their high oil content which makes them moister and more flavorsome. More than one hundred almond varieties grow in Spain but there are five main commercial types – Marcona, Largueta, Planeta, Valencias or Common Almond and Majorca.

This grilled chicken with date honey and garlic recipe is a sweet and very tasty dish that is also easy to cook, economical, and pretty much everybody likes it (except for vegetarians!). The combination of garlic and honey is absolutely mouthwatering. For this recipe, I like using whole leg and thigh pieces, but you can use wings as well or a whole chicken if you like. I recommend you to soak the chicken the whole night, so the flavors can really penetrate into the meat and not remain only on the shell – but you can put it in the oven immediately after preparation of the job. So if you’re looking for something that’s packed with flavor and ready in no time… give this grilled chicken with date honey and garlic a shot: you won’t be disappointed!
