Here are some Barcelona pics to get you salivating...just haven't got time at the moment to write anything up, maybe over the weekend...
These pics were all taken at the fabulous food market, La Boqueria.
I was perplexed when we first came across these strange-looking bamboo-esque mussels. They were wrapped up in bundles, looking for all the world like some sticks of bamboo. Then I noticed their creamy white tongues lolling slowly in and out of their mouths....weird! I had no idea what they were, only that they were some kind of seafood. At least you could tell they were fresh. Later, when we came home I happened across an episode of some series of Rick Stein's, and lo and behold, there they were - razor clams! Mystery solved.
How could anyone resist a fig so delicious?
...and so cheap??? In Switzerland figs were selling for 1 franc EACH recently.
Oh, gelati, you know the way to my heart.
Now 'tis the time for mushies, of all shapes and sizes
Luscious pears, so pale and sweet!
Can anyone tell me the name of this fruit?
And likewise these bizarro seafood thngies????? They look like claws to me, but I'm sure they're not.
