Antonio the fruit lover
I often pass by his shop in calle Puentezuelas and think, wow this guy must really like his products from the way he always very nicely arranges the fruit and vegetable ....so pleasing to the eye and very romantic too. At least, it made me stop and shoot all these happy colors. I bought 2 kilos of Raf tomatoes as if we didn't have enough tomatoes already at home. Yes, I can now happily declare that the gazpacho season has started ! I'm not a tomato expert but Raf tomatoes are incredibly delicious. I'm now trying to remember if I had any in France. I think not. Like Antonio says, the best way to eat them is to cut them in half, with a bit of salt and it's like a taste of sweet summer which melts in your mouth. (well...like any nice tomato should taste really). May is the month when they reach their optimal savor. I also bought some plums and paraguayas, this flat fruit which resembles a peach and tastes like a nectarine. It's quite amusing to see people staring at Antonio's stall. Like we say in French, some really devour it with their eyes ! Then they patiently take the queue as if waiting for a little treat.
I should really cut out on the potato crisps but these ones here, Dealva patatas are one of the best I've ever tasted. I'm not a tomato expert but yes I'm a potato crisps connoisseur and they're fabulous. Prepared with a very light flavored olive oil so as not to overpower the taste of the potato, without conservatives, additives or colorants. And made in Spain...of course...
Now I want to grow my own tomatoes, eat them in the sun and dry them in the sun too....Ah ..the Andalusian slow life struck me again!
