The article offers information on the cuisines of Spain and Portugal. The two countries share influences from around the globe. Both countries sent explorers east to India to import spices, and west to the New World to bring back what they could find. All those flavors and textures have been added to the mix of indigenous plants, fish and animals found in Iberia, including saffron, one of the most expensive spices, grown only in Spain and a must in some authentic recipes.
