The post this week is dedicated to a savoury dish that is both simple and delicious. It is probably one of the most cooked dishes in Spain, available in just about every bar and made regularly in households across the country. There is no tortilla like the one made at home, and not recognising the unsurpassable virtues of a spouse’s efforts can be a suitable reason for divorce. In spite of the risk to life and limb, my father-in-law puts his old college’s tortilla as beyond compare. I had to find out more……..
So a word or two on the tortilla de patata. The ingredients are potatoes, eggs and optionally onion. That is it, no more, no less. There are many recipes out there that include additional ingredients, some of them even written by famous non-Spanish chefs. Do not be misled, the authentic recipe is just these three ingredients.
