Latest News: Traditional Christmas Recipes of Spain".

"A traveller in Spain is often surprised to see that every village has its own culinary specialities. What a contrast this is to the bland, standardised food of Northern Europe, where, even at Christmas time, few local dishes exist in our rather monochrome "Westernised" gastronomy.

Spain has avoided this food "industrialisation" and is still proud of its local dishes. It remains a treasure trove of food diversity with Roman, Arab, Jewish and Christian influences on many of its recipes. Spain is blessed with a pride and love for its traditional dishes, combined with a variety of ingredients that many chefs only dream about.

Christmas is a special time and few people in the world are as capable of making it into a truly special occasion as the Spanish. They have a love and understanding of good food and a good party: Christmas in Spain is fun and a truly culinary delight.

Here we present you with just some traditional Spanish Christmas Recipes. Enjoy them and Feliz Navidad!"

Latest News: Ethical Eating - A Complete Guide to Sustainable Food".

"Global food is not a nice business. It is controlled by a small cartel of unscrupulous, profit-grubbing multinationals with little or no regard for the consumer, their workers or the planet. It is an industry riddled by safety scandals, the nutritional quality of our food is in free-fall and diet related illness has now become epidemic.

Intensive agriculture is steadily destroying the planet, contaminating water and air with artificial fertilisers and pesticides, degrading farmland, causing deforestation and pumping out greenhouse gases faster than the world's entire transport system. Meanwhile Big Food's rapacious appetite for profit knows no limits as it bribes its way through the 3rd world in a huge land grab, dumping untested GM seed on a new generation of farmer-slaves.

But all is not lost! A new movement of real, organic and ethical food is on the brink of a renaissance. Read on to understand how Big Food really works and how to reclaim control over our own food once again."
