Few countries in the world offer the diversity of cuisine as Spain.

A variety of dishes incorporate ingredients such as chorizo which is spicy sausage, lechazo asado which is roasted milk-fed lamb, cheeses, wine, shellfish, and fresh fish. Each region in Spain offers its own exciting and unique cooking styles from Andalusia's fried and battered fish to Seville's sweet pastries, from paella originating in Valencia to gazpacho native to Andalusia.
