  2. 2. • Over the centuries, Spanish cuisine has been influenced by many other cultures, both invaders and visitors, as well as from its colonies. • 1100 B.C. – The Phoenicians arrived in the South, and established a colony called Gádir, the modern day Cádiz. This became an important trading center. The Phoenicians stayed for centuries, establishing more colonies in what is today Huelva and Malaga. • In 218 B.C., the Romans arrived at the Iberian Peninsula. It was then that the Romanization of the Peninsula began and what we could consider the start of the history of Spain as a nation. The Romans
  3. 3. • In 711 A.D., the Moors crossed the Straight of Gibraltar from Africa and invaded the Peninsula. They quickly established themselves in South and Central Spain and they flourished for many centuries.

  8. 8. • A significant portion of Spanish cuisine derives from the Roman, Jewish, and Andalusian traditions.  •  The Moorish people were a strong influence in Spain for many centuries. However, pork is popular and for centuries eating pork was also a statement of Christian ethnicity or "cleanliness of blood", because it was not eaten by Jews or Muslims.  • The essential ingredient for real Spanish cooking is olive oil, as Spain produces 44% of the world's olives. However, butter or lard are also important, especially in the north.
  9. 9. • As is true in many countries, the cuisines of Spain differ widely from one region to another, even though they all share certain common characteristics, which include: >The use of olive oil as a cooking ingredient in items such as fritters. It is also used raw. >The use of sofrito to start the preparation of many dishes. >The use of garlic and onions as major ingredients. >The custom of drinking wine during meals. >Serving bread with the vast majority of meals.
