This weeks episode of Speaking of Spain is now available from the iTunes store or from this web site here.
1: On the show this week is a review of Abby Text Grabber, the image to text recognition tool as well as translator. Find out why it is a mighty fine app to have on your smart phone when out and about.
2: Secondly, there is a short history of the infamous Black Monday incident during the Spanish transition to democracy during the latter half of the 1970's. Find out why the move from authoritarianism to the ballet box was not as smooth as some have made out.
3: Finally, as its cold and grey and rather black out today, I'm reposting an old recipe for garlic soup and tracing back the vegetable's roots all the way to the bottom of Satan's feet.

Ive added a sample recipe to the Recipes section on the website. This is a summarised sample from the book, removed out of context for this web site. It should however still serve as a recipe to follow to try out the wonderful dish known as Pippirana, and as summer is fast approaching it is better to be prepared for when the heat hits.
