Almond flan introduction
Flan is one of the most popular delicacies in Spain. It is prepared in various flavors and textures, depending on the local flavors and agricultural products of each different region. It has a very thick and creamy structure, a delicacy with a rich taste.
Spanish “pastels” or pastry shops are amazing. There are several on each block, and as you pass by, you’ll see beautiful, handmade cakes and cookies. In addition to fancy cakes, there are many classic or traditional Spanish desserts such as Turrón, Mantecados, then Crema Catalana or Catalan Cream is the Catalan version of the creamy and tender crème brulée. There’s also the inevitable Churros, it’s fried dough, which looks almost like fries. The best way to explain them is to say that they are the Spanish equivalent of a donut. Instead of a small donut-like ring, the “churro” is normally long and relatively straight, with ridges. Spanish flint, called “natillas”, is one of the foods that many Spanish adults recall from their childhood.
