Food for a Spanish Themed Party

Despite its own centuries-old culinary traditions, Spanish cuisine has been influenced by a surprising number of other nations. Early influences included the Romans, and more importantly the Moors from north Africa, who brought with them their spices and their own cooking style which over time blended with that of Spain. As Spanish explorers ventured to the New World, they brought back with them tomatoes, potatoes, sweet potatoes, vanilla, chocolate, peppers and many types of beans. These have all been incorporated into Spanish cooking, along with the nation's existing produce, including olives, citrus fruits, grape vines, garlic, their much loved chorizo sausage and jamon serrano - cured ham.

Seafood is popular in many regions of Spain, and statistics show (apparently!) that the average Spaniard eats 12 times as much fish in a year as the average Englishman!

For a themed Spanish Grand Prix party, tapas is an ideal way to combine food and sport without having to cook a formal sit-down meal.
The idea is to have a series of different dishes, small portions of which can be served up over the course of the race. This does mean that, unless you want to spend the whole time in the kitchen and so miss the event, you need to plan and prepare well in advance. But with a little preparation, this can be a fun and different way to throw a Formula 1 party.

Drink for a Spanish Themed Party

When most people think of Spain they think of Sangria, but Spain has much more to offer in its drinks cabinet! However, if you want to make Sangria for your Spanish Grand Prix party, click here for the recipe. Additionally, Spain's climate is ideal for growing of citrus fruits and grapes, so fresh fruit juices and wines are of great quality and widely available. Sherry - Jerez - is extremely popular, as are the many excellent reds. Cava - the sparkling wine produced in the south of the country - is growing in popularity internationally too.
Spanish beers such as San Miguel , Cruzcampo, Alhambra and Mahou are widely available.

There's a great selection of Spanish wine online at DrinkSupermarket.com.
