What is the best ketchup brand?

Ketchup would hardly make a list of the finest and most elegant sauces in cooking history. However, it must have something if it likes millions of people in the world, who use it with enthusiasm to smear dogs, hamburgers or anything that can be put between bread and bread. The sugar? Heartburn? The spices? The faraway tomato flavor? Surely it is the mixture of all those things, in the form of a kind product that does not say much but does not offend anyone either. To determine which brand makes the most dignified ketchup, we summoned a whole hamburger addict, the gastronomic journalist Òscar Broc. He blindly cataloged nine of the most popular brands, analyzed them, and rated them. If you want to know his verdict, hit play in the video above. . Disclaimer: If you need to upd...

Those affected by Popular earn more from the rescue than the shareholders of the bank

The owners of the loyalty bonds that Banco Santander offered to those affected by the Popular resolution are in luck. The bonds received by some of Popular's shareholders no longer lose money, they have even won, since the entity's resolution on June 7, 2017.

The until then sixth largest entity in the country ended up bein...

Pasta with ragout of sardines and asparagus

What do the revolconas potatoes, the Catalan suquet, the all i pebre or the marmitako have in common? Ok yes, potatoes, but what else? All of them are dishes that share an ancient humble and poor origin based on gastronomic abstinence or, so that we understand each other, 'fill the crop with cheap things'. Never laugh at the potato! A fungus that infected this tuber was the culprit of one of the worst famines that human beings have ever known, thus leading to a great Irish migration at the end of the 19th century. A hydrate with a neutral flavor that appreciates all the ingredients that one can imagine: torreznos and paprika, fish that are impossible to sell or pieces of vegetables were some of the ingredients with which, in Spain, potatoes were seasoned.
