As we continue to accumulate more information for us pilgrims, I was thinking about how cool it would be to include the foods of each of each region. Imagine supporting and enjoying the local foods by town or region. Or seasonal specialties that we travelling pilgrims could sample along the way. Cheeses, cured meats, fruits vegetables or specific dishes and styles of cooking. We could eat those "must try" foods all the way to Santiago, Rome, Jerusalem etc. Let's eat!

You reminded me of this Easter treat that blew me away in spain. “Torrijas’ or a spanish bread pudding or Spanish (not French) toast.
It’s so sweet and I really overindulged the first time I spent Easter in spain. Sweet tooth ....mmmmmm

I’ve just taken a copy from internet. So many recipes there to choose from.

Camino Frances (May/June 2018)
This may look unappealing, but it was divine food! Portuguese Coastal Route, eaten in a darling cafe, outside, next to rushing water, in a jewel box of a town (name will come; I have quarantine brain) May 2017

It has to be Pulpo a Feria for me - my Camino isn’t in gear until I’ve had my first racion in Galicia!
Some local dry white wine to wash it down ideally...
Buen provecho!

Calamari in Portugal - completely ruined me for Calamari back in my landlocked home.

I hear ya! We ordered calamari in Portugal many times...the rings, chiperones, and baby squids cooked in various sauces. I loved it all, but by the time we made it across the border I'd finally had enough. 😛

This settles it, please everyone keep posting about food and don't forget the pictures. I'm taking notes, I am going to eat my way across Spain, and Portugal, next time. I'll only walk to get to more food, Joost is my new role model.
