Famous throughout the world for its traditional dishes, such as paella, gazpacho, and Catalan cream, Spanish cuisine is able to boast a wide variety of raw materials, which have always been elaborated both in-home cooking and in catering with great imagination, wisdom, and competence.

The Spanish cuisine is distinguished by having first introduced, at the beginning of the sixteenth century, some ingredients from the Americas, such as tomatoes, potatoes, corn, or cocoa, which today are commonly used throughout Europe, in many different preparations.
