A New Spanish Food Site
If, like us, you’ve been craving Spanish food, you can now get your fill of paella and pan con tomate straight from your desk with the launch of a new website from La Tienda, America’s leading importer of gourmet Spanish goods The free website, Learning @ La Tienda, is a perfect educational tool for those hungry for a taste of Spanish food and culture.
The site has three nifty tools to engage Spain culinary enthusiasts. Digital flash cards with audio links teach the correct pronunciation of traditional Spanish dishes like membrillo and boquerones--something our Spanish 101 class neglected to teach us. The “Hablo Images” feature offers a peek into the world of contemporary Spain. A variety of essays on the producers of La Tienda’s gourmet goods are translated into both Spanish and English. We can now decisively say “tenemos hambre.”
