98 – Foreign Food  Posted on 04/11/2014

91 – A Morsel of Bacon  Posted on 02/06/2014
Unusually, I have written very little about food in this blog.  Strange, because it plays an enormous part in my life.  And it’s different here in Spain.  Not just the food, but the rituals around it, and the general...
