Before diving into the gastronomic adventure, it’s essential to understand the historical roots of tapas in Seville.

In a region surrounded by both the Mediterranean and the Atlantic fish should be an important part of the culture. In Andalusia you can try a wide variety of fish. Our option for this list is called Cazón en Adobo, being “Cazón” the name of the fish (dogfish) while “en adobo” refers to the cooking method (marinated). Dogfish is a small species of shark and it is cut into small pieces marinated in a sauce with vinegar, paprika, garlic and origan for few hours before deep-frying.

When it is about Spanish cuisine it is about pork. The culture of pork in Andalusia also refers to historical reasons (forbidden animal for Muslims and Jewish) as a way of proving a new Christian was loyal to the new religion. The Iberian race of pigs is also considered a religion in some of the mountain villages, where local farms will look after the animals feeding them with acorns until it is time.

Out of the parts of the pig we have chosen the cheeks, usually prepared as a slow cooked stew, sometimes with sherry wine to give flavour. You will be surprised discovering how tender pork meat can be.
