12 Things I’ve Learnt Thanks to 12 Months of Blogging

The middle of last month it was my little blog’s first birthday. Only I didn’t realise it at the time, in fact, I completely forgot about this momentous occasion. There is a good reason for this. When I started Gastronomic Nomad on wordpress.com (yes, complete with the wordpress.com ending) I didn’t actually imagine anyone would actually be [...]

Everything You Need To Know About Spanish Cider

When you think of cider probably the first thing that springs to mind is the often sweet Irish cider – think Magners, Bulmers or Kopperberg. Or maybe you associate cider with a small, artisan producer – after all, cider is becoming much more popular around the world and it seems as if artisan cider producers are appearing from anywhere that has [...]

Discovering Gracia’s Soul Through Food

When Devour Barcelona Food Tours announced that they would be doing food tours through Barcelona’s village-like Gracia neighbourhood, I wanted in. So, when only two weeks into their official existence, I happened to be in Barcelona I knew that rambling around the streets of Gracia, under the guidance of the lovely Renée, would be the perfect way to spend [...]

How To Eat Out Like A Local In Spain

I read a great quote the other day.“When you travel, remember that a foreign country is not designed to make you comfortable. It is designed to make its own people comfortable.” Damn, I couldn’t have put it better myself. One of the things I love the most about travelling is discovering the difference between customs and [...]

10 Reasons Why I am Totally in Love With Tarifa

On the Costa de la Luz in the South of Spain, where the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean meet, there is a small whitewashed town that is home to less than 18,000 people. But despite its size, the small town of Tarifa has been placed on the tourist map for a several reasons. Firstly, it’s [...]

Postcards from Álora: Dicovering the charm of Andalucía

The hot day turned into a mild evening, as we sat on the terrace discussing life in the valley over a glass of wine. Kenneth started to talk about his organic lemon groves to which we guiltily confessed; we already know how good the lemons are. We ate some today. It may seem mad that a person [...]

Lately I have been eating…V2.0

It’s that time of the month again. The one where I want to share something interesting with you, but the realisation that the interesting things that have occurred in my life lately have mostly just involved, well, food. From the hills of Galicia, to the heat of Andalucía, but not forgetting the laid-back pace of [...]

The Food That Never Stops: Casa de Santo Antonio, Porto

When I sat down at Casa de Santo Antonio in Porto and the beret topped waiter explained that he will just bring us petiscos until we tell him that we have eaten enough, I knew that I was going to be in for a different kind of eating experience. No menus to bother with? No decisions to make? Yes please! Petiscos is a [...]

5 Restaurants in Seville That TripAdvisor Got Right

It’s no secret that I don’t agree with the review system on TripAdvisor. Despite it being one of the world’s biggest websites in aid of travel planning, it is seriously flawed. But, anyone who has travelled to a new place knows that, every now and then, TripAdvisor does come in handy. For example, if I decide I’m [...]
