So, about a year ago, I spent the most delightfully delicious weekend in a very hidden village in Spain. The village is called Pozos, and it’s a tangle of stone houses set in gorgeous mountains in the province of León. Over the course of 48 hours, we feasted on rice with rabbit and quail, we roasted a baby goat in the communal village oven, we explored my friend Lauren and Alejandro’s recently purchased ruin and I discovered the most gorgeous pair of ponies I’ve ever see in my life.
I was invited to the village by Laura and Esme, who run a little gastronomic retreat company called Esme Tours. The offer cooking classes, country walks and wine experiences in the region, direct from their gorgeous home. If you’re planning a trip to Spain (or if you life in Spain and want to escape for a weekend), I really do suggest you check them out!
Anyway, I’ll leave you with the video, which I hope give you a true insight into village life in Spain, a taste of Spanish culture, and a glimpse at some seriously delicious cooking. Oh, and there are those two ponies of course. Enjoy!
