Welcome to Yummy Almeria!

9 Aug

Welcome to Yummy Almeria, my new blog which hopefully you will find fun to read and helpful if you are thinking of planning a trip to Cortijo del Sevillano, Cuevas del Almanzora, eastern Almeria.

There are no Monday morning blues at the Cortijo and in fact no one ever seems to know what day it is including me!  That is a good sign I think unless the buildings insurance is due.  I will be including all kinds of information here – both useless and interesting – and will cover local activities, sports facilities, fiestas, beaches, towns both local and further a field, Almeria City, Murcia, shopping, markets and the most important one for me, Food!

I will include lots of restaurants which we or our guests have visited and what we think of them, and also include what’s cooking in my kitchen on a regular basis!

I have done all my chores for the day and write this from a hammock in our courtyard.  It is sweltering and I have just come back from the pool and mingled with the guests.  I tried out my comedy chocolate cake on them, comedy because I quadrupled the recipe and added quite a lot of baking powder so it looks like a giant cartoon cake.  I filled it with chocolate mousse, cream and black cherries.  I think, all things considered, that doubling the quantities in future will suffice and will also be easier to store.  I hate skinny cakes as they look a bit depressing and mean but equally, a foot high is a tad excessive.  But it was received with gasps not of horror I hope.
