Tortillas de Patatas (Spanish omelet or Spanish tortilla) is a traditional dish from Spain and one of the signature dishes in Spanish cuisine. It is an omelet made with eggs and potatoes, sometimes including onion. It can be served hot, or at room temperature as a tapa.
Martiña Gago, who will demonstrate this recipe, is from Santiago de Compostela (Galicia). Although Galicia is less known than some of Spain’s more touristed cities and areas like Madrid, Barcelona, or Seville, and has much more in common with the British Isles, it is highly regarded as having some of the best food in Spain. This area of Spain is well known for its simple cooking style and emphasis on high quality, fresh ingredients. The great thing about this recipe is that it’s ubiquitous and can be found on menus from the finest restaurants to truck stops. Spaniards have a very high standard for food, so it’s always good!
