Another hot day in Barcelona. Well, for the Catalan people it's also their National Day today. So after watching three different castells (human towers) being built I decided to find shelter in the shade again. I'm slowly adding the missing recipes of my London Cakes, trying to do one a day.
I'm also thinking about new recipes as I have stocked up on ingredients at one of my favourite shops in Barcelona. Imagine two really long shelves of almonds, hazelnuts, pistachios etc., chocolate in 1kg bags, nut pastes, dried fruit, different kinds of sugars...it's good! One of my teachers told me about it last year when I was doing a Spanish course here. I wanted to take the shop with me to London. It's probably the real reason why I moved to Barcelona. Check it out yourself, "Productos Parami" is just around the corner from the university on Carrer de la Diputació, 204. They're also selling turrón and their own cakes there, which I have yet to try.
