    • 350g spicy mini cooking chorizo sausage
    • 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 400ml Spanish cider, ideally Asturian or Basque


    Chorizo in Cider is a classic Asturian dish, seen in many tapas restaurants.
    The secret to a tasty chorizo a la sidra is to slowly cook the chorizo in the cider for at least 20 minutes. This ensures the chorizo gets coated in the lovely sweet apple notes of the cider. It is also the ideal tapas dish for a dinner party because you can prepare it in advance. It’s easy to serve and it will be a popular dish with your guests. Don’t forget to serve it with some wooden skewers or toothpicks for a more authentic Spanish feel.


    1. Heat the olive oil in a medium size pan. Once hot, fry gently the mini chorizo pieces and bay leaf for about 3 minutes on each side.
    2. Increase the heat and pour in the cider. Bring the cider to the boil, lower the heat and cook for about 20 minutes for the chorizo sausage to take on the cider flavour.
    3. Serve with crusty bread and a glass of chilled cider…of course.
