Valencia bound


From Alfredo’s With Love On Summer Break!


The time is almost here – tomorrow I will be off to a villa just south of Valencia near Oliva, not far from the Costa Azahar…I cannot wait. Peace and quiet amongst the orange and lemon groves. Heaven! The weather here has been great this week in Hampshire with highs of 30 degrees and we have also been graced by a couple of seriously spectacular electrical storms the last two nights.

Weather in Valencia region looking v promising too…



Food this week has been barbecues and paellas and cold spreads, home made pestos and salads.





This morning I got in the desayuno mood with scrambled eggs topped with several slices of lightly pan fried jamon serrano. Working on my Spanish too with a fab app called…wait for it…Cat Spanish – it is very good and highly recommended!

I will, I assure you, be taking lots of food photos whilst away and will post on my return plus any new recipe ideas.

I hope you all have a peaceful and relaxing time wherever you are this summer, surrounded by friends, family, good food and wine!


Hasta luego!
