I’ve got tears in my eyes as I look at this photo.
It’s for two reasons:
1) I heart Barcelona! Out of the 26 cities we visited last year it was my favourite (tied 1st with Tokyo).
2) Now that I’m pregnant I can’t eat cured meats. Besides, nothing will taste as good as eating pure Iberico ham in the country the lucky (black-hoofed) pig was raised in.
And, I feel guilty guzzling it here in Oz due to the food miles it has racked up, just to enter my hungry belly. Sigh.
This shot was taken at the famous La Boqueria fresh produce market in Barcelona.
I’ve got plenty of other great shots of olives, pineapples, mushrooms, seafood and more – but you’ll have to wait for future Foreign Food Fridays posts for those. (Note: Click those blue words to view all the previous posts!).
