I have just returned from a very short week in Marbella, Spain. With a long flight, a longer layover and an additional 3 hour flight, getting there seemed to take a week Needless to say, I wasn’t over the jet lag before I was back on the plane to come home. Marbella, one of eight provinces in the region of Andalusia, has a reputation of being the playground of the rich and famous, but originally was a small fishing village. With five coastal provinces, seafood is high on the list of foods consumed as well as the local jamones (hams) of Jabugo, sherry from Jerez, olives, olive oils among many other food and drink too numerous to list.

A classic Andalusian gazpacho enjoyed in Ronda, a city in the mountains divided in half by a 100 foot gorge. Modern bullfighting was born in Ronda and is the site of one of the oldest bullfighting arenas, Plaza del Toros, now a museum.

A seafood paella for four at El Faro, a chiringuito (restaurant next to the sea) in Marbella.

A pescader√≠a (fish market) in Mijas, popular for the “donkey taxis”and stunning white-washed houses which sit atop Mijas Pueblo.
