Our new favourite wine - a Crianza called Arzuaga (pronounced 'Arthwayga')
These eggs were found in the local supermarket, free range, fresh and delicious. Each box has a certificate of authentication and less than Aus$5 for a dozen.
We found this stall at a local market, selling only fresh and natural fruit jellies (pate de fruit) with no colours or preservatives.

Our new favourite Chocolate/Pastry Shop on Calle Alcala, 5 mins from our hotel.
The shop smelt amazing and had a very high quality selection of entremets, chocolates and viennoiserie.
All of the large gateaux were sold out within an hour but beautiful individual pieces were still available.
All items are baked and prepared on premises by a very talented chef called Ricardo Martinez Velez.
