Food Processing The process of making food is very complicated. What happens is raw ingredients are decontaminated and made healthy to eat. To make a hamburger you have to kill a cow, slice it up and decontaminate it and it ends up in a shop.
44% of the world’s olive oil is produced in Spain that is more than half that of Italy and four times more than Greece. In Spain nearly three quarters of the worlds saffron ( a spice)is grown. The original paella was not considered a seafood dish but it had chicken, rabbit and pork (sometimes snail).
The Spanish people (mainly people of a town called Cadiz) say they invented fried fish. Tapas is not a type of dish but a way of eating it. Tapas means cover and traditionally a slice of cheese or placed over a drink. Even though Spain is more commonly known for red wine, the majority of it’s vineyards have white grapes.
If you want to have one of the most popular dishes in Spain then you will want to have Paella. Paella is a dish with rice and usually seafood on top. The Spanish think that the less there is of seafood the more traditional.
