In part 3 of La Comida Española we’ll be looking at fruit. I’ve had a few people say to me how I’ve missed quite a few things out on my lists, so I’d just like to point out that I am by no means providing a comprehensive list in each post, but rather providing the words that you might not know so that you can expand on what you already know. So here’s the list for today:


  • arándano – blueberry
  • cereza – cherry
  • ciruela – plum
  • ciruela seca – prune
  • coco – coconut
  • dátiles – dates
  • higos – figs
  • lima – lime
  • mora – blackberry
  • pasas – raisins
  • ruibarbo – rhubarb
  • sandia – watermelon

Don’t forget to leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Hasta pronto.


Hola otra vez,

Time for the second part in my Spanish cuisine posts. Today we’ll be looking at Spanish words for meat. For some reason it took me ages to get my head around the names for the different types of meat, but hopefully you’ll pick it up a lot quicker than I did!

  • cordero – lamb
  • cerdo – pork
  • ternera – veal
  • cochinillo – suckling pig
  • costillas – ribs
  • chuleta – pork chop
  • lomo – steak/fillet
  • conejo – rabbit
  • ganso – goose
  • pato – duck
  • pavo – turkey

If you know of any more words  don’t forget to leave a comment and let me know.

Nos vemos pronto.
