Spanish Chorizo

This chorizo is hot, smells nice and you can have it for tapas, with wine, rice or you can fry it or barbeque it. I took these photos with my Dad who doing pictures for the website and he let me use his camera very carefully!!

We cooked the chorizo sausages in a frying pan first for these pictures because they look better and nice and tasty.

The chorizo costs ten euros and you can get 10 in a pack, we buy them from Julian who is our butcher. The best way to have chorizo is for tapas on toothpiks after they have been done on the barbeque.

This is my new dog who came from the Spanish countryside so I decided to call him 'Campo'. I dont know how old he is but he is just a puppy. I think he came from a farm down the road and copies my other dog 'Reme'

My dog 'Campo'

A few weeks ago I went to a village called Maria with my Mam and dad and we visited where the serrano hams are made. It was very interesting and we took lots of photos of hams and chorizos and other things. When we wnet to the top floor where the hams are cured we had to use a lift with do doors!

Serrano Hams

The hams from Maria are very good and I have been practicing my carving on a 'jamon' bodega. I think my tapas are getting better!
