The national dish of Spain is Tortilla de patatas and why not make it on October 12 when Spain celebrates their national day. Here’s what our country chef Ivette says about the national dish of Spain:
The Spanish omelette is called a tortilla de patatas, but watch out! Tortilla in Spain is not the same as it is in Mexico, tortilla is an omelette in Spain. And it is not the same thing as an omelette in the US. Omelettes are very famous in Spain. You can have a spinach omelette, green bean and potato omelette, vegetable omelette or you can easily create your own version of any omelette. But, the most traditional one is the Spanish potato omelette. I love this recipe because It so versatile. It can be served as breakfast, lunch or dinner, can be served as a “tapa” or as a main dish and it’s good both warm and cold.
