I was living in a flat in Barcelona, (after living in Paris for a year) while all the other occupants were away on holiday as it was August, and thought I would figure out what the Spanish food words were before I tried my hand at Las Ramblas farmers market. After trying to read a Spanish cookbook and getting the ingredients for the shopping list and cross referencing the Spanish English dictionary to figure out what and how to say it…not realizing it was Catalonia and all bets were off when it came to speaking a Mexican version of Spanish which should have been Catalan. I somehow managed to get all that I needed with a great deal of sarcastic shop keeps, completely confused as to why they were so rude to me. Regardless I invited friends over and managed to make an amazing authentic dish which no one believed I made myself! Note to women: Do Not go shopping without another person…Spanish people in Barcelona mistake a single female for someone with the a type of Evening Job that is called the oldest profession! I wish I had known! I just wanted White Peaches for Sangria, Red Peppers and Peas!!!
