What Are You Having For Lunch?

At Madrid’s Mercado de Maravillas, there’s lots to choose from. I sometimes have a hard time deciding what to cook, so I went around the market asking other people what they were having for lunch. Hope you enjoy the latest episode. Please let me know what you think in the comments!

    Great podcast….. I love the mix of english and spanish and how relaxed people seemed to be when talking to you. It’s interesting having people tell you what they are going to be making for lunch, I’m hungry now and feel inspired to go to the market. Thanks for this.

    I love Spanish markets and your podcast brought me right inside one of them mingling with people. When I go to Spain, a visit to at least one is a must for me. Some are truly architectural time pieces, others are simple local markets but tegardless, they are always very animated and full of all sorts of interesting folks. It is a landscape of the freshest food of every type and I loved the added bonus that you can stop and have a tapa and a glass of wine while people watching. Very civilized!
    Thanks for the memories. I really enjoyed it!

      I’ll have to try Bar Javi, thanks for the tip. Have you had the empanadillas at Píllalos? Hard to miss it, just look for the long line up. But don’t worry, it goes fast, and more important, the wait is worth it. Thanks for listening Denise!

    What a delightful and entertaining podcast! I could feel the smile on my face right through from beginning to end. I was also really surprised by how many people spoke English and quite well! Looking forward to your next one, Mike…

    I always love your podcast, they transport me to the place and I see myself walking next to you talking to these people. It is amazing how a conversation about food can become so engaging no matter where you are. Thanks a lot for sharing.

    Love these audio pieces Mike, its wonderful how willing people are to share their recipes and cooking methods.
    Knowing you as I do, I have no doubt your charm is a big factor in getting people to open up to you.

    Mas Mas por favor

      Thank you Cheryl, you’re too kind. I get a lot of ‘no’ too! It’s funny, you can pretty much tell walking up to someone if they’re going to be willing to talk or not. It was a lot of fun though, and yes, great to chat with such nice people. I’m looking forward to doing it again.
