A Taste of Spain – in London

The chimes of Big Ben were drowned out by the clicking of castanets as London’s famous Borough Market went Mediterranean.
Budding gourmets and Spanish enthusiasts indulged their taste-buds as the week long ‘Taste of Spain’ festival concentrated on matters food and drink.
This tantalising selection of Spain’s most famous foods and wines included demonstrations by chefs from London’s leading Spanish restaurants and the Spanish regions. There were even cocktails being made out of Harveys Sherry.
It’s part of a push to encourage British people to sample the Spanish experience, and hopefully encourage even more of us to take a trip to Spain on holiday.
To see just what was served up, take a look at this video.
