Lentil Stew

This Spanish-style lentil stew is easy to make with very simple ingredients. Once again my grandmother’s recipe comes to the rescue, and although she added Chorizo and Morcilla ( blood pudding) to hers, I more often than not omit them and proceed to make up the vegetarian option. It never ceases to amaze me how […]

Chicken Liver Pate

Chicken in Garlic Sauce – Pollo al Ajillo

This Chicken dish, is probably a staple in every Gibraltarian household. However, as with so many other recipes, we tend to add and adapt ingredients to suit our own personal tastes.
