Spanish Food and Drink is Javier's passion
Hola! My name is Javier De La Hormaza, a Basque born, adopted Yorkshire man, trained chef but lifetime cook, lover of food without gels or froths, hospitality professional turned food importer. I am absolutely passionate about Spain and Spanish food and drink, particularly old school Basque dishes and old time Spanish classics. I read and cook with the aim of tasty imperfection. I don't cook food so it looks pretty, I cook food to stuff my face and please people. Basque cuisine is very close to my heart and my goal is to bring a pinch of its gastronomic culture to a wider audience, which is why I set up this food blog. Basco is me, a Basque. The idea for this blog is to share with you authentic Spanish and Basque recipes you can cook at home. Simple, traditional recipes you will enjoy making and hopefully learn something new on the way.
