4/ Spanish Dish

For our fourth meeting, we decide that we want to make a popular Spanish dish. The place for this new meeting was in the Tanja and Magdalena’s house. It’s a cute Finnish cottage, so this time again we learned about different cultures in a place that is representative of a country that no one known before this semester. So, Xavier decides to make a “Tortilla” : a Spanish omelet. I already ate that dish before, because I went much time in Spain but it was the first time that I make it by myself ! I’m not especially a cooker so it was funny for me to try to make it.

During the dinner, we talk about traditional dishes in each country or the things that we love to eat. For example, we talked about paellas and the different one according to the region of Spain but also the different ingredient that you can add in a tortilla because I already ate one with chorizo so I asked Xavier if it was something normal or just a strange tortilla created by a restaurant.

It was one of the meetings that I was really waiting for because the “cooking evening” is the only meeting that we were sure to make during this semester. By the way, I am not someone that cooks often so it was really funny for me !

After that the german girls shown us which dish they will be prepared for us !
