They share characteristics such as a pleasant balance between sweet and sour, they come up when you dress them and also their season coincides at this time when spring already smells like summer, and they fancy salads and cold soups in which we can combine them without cutting ourselves. a hair. Although red fruits are delicate and sensitive to heat, and must be kept in the refrigerator, their flavor and aroma are much more powerful when they are at room temperature.

If you don't have raspberries and blueberries on hand, you can use blackberri...

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.
