Hi all, being a novice in Spanish, how do I find (Creme Fraiche) in the supermarket? It`s for a pasta dish.

Cheers
Pete

Pete its called .... creme fraiche, it should be in most deli or dairy sections in the supermarkets.
If you cant find it try a nice red wine in it instead, it may even be nicer. ;-)

I happened to watch the Living in Spain program when they gave a recipe for (oven) sun-dried tomatoes. They used "pera" toms, didn't remove the pips (did you know the seeds are protein?), and sprinkled, I think, garlic and basil over the toms.

Hi Miss Naughty,

I hope you don't mind if I jump in with this recipe for a lasagna, too?

This is made with aubergine/eggplant/berenjena, and ever since I saw it prepared on spanish tv I've wanted to try it.

Only recently found the website for the chef (he made a variation of this recipe, I guess you could substitute jamon york with queso de cabra, or even tuna), Karlos Arguinano:

http://www.karlosnet.com/Karlos/tureceta.php?c=36962

Yum,
Carol

thats what i'm thinking of buying before we come out too, i would miss sausages like we have in the u.k, plus would be good to experiment with different blends.

lolol good idea! we've been busy trying to keep the house sorted for viewings, so i've not been on here very much!
we bought some lovely sausagesl ast week at a country fair at Brogdale, they were pork and apple, made with Gloucester old spot pork, they were delicious a real;ly meaty texture, i can't stand sausages that are almost like pate inside! i've just bought 2 kilos from our local farmer, pork and sage, not had any yet but if they're like his lamb they'll be lovely.
just think of all the lovely combinations you could make oooh my mouth is watering!!
i've been very nigella like lately, i made some red tomato chutney and some real tomato ketchup this week!

ooh yummy

I don't like the ones that have about 10% meat 90% cereal like so many english sausages - much prefer the really meaty spanish ones, but yes our local butcher in the UK did some lovely ones too

how's it going now with the house?
