List of goodies from Spain

Amin (London Foodie '''') | Sep 6, 2005 09:09 AM

Am going to Malaga on the 14th and from there by road to Madrid. Shall appreciate a list of 'must bring back' goodies, preferably where possible with a location/source of where to obtain these easily as I will be short of time due to an appointment in Ciudad Real and also in Cuenca.

Butterfly you have been a treasure trove of information, and look forward to your brilliant ideas as well. Basically am looking for ambient medium-long life goodies so how do these sound: ?

Alcaparrones (caper berries) -Jarred.
Arroz bomba (with d.o.)

Macadamia / Garrapiñadas (jarred) -from Comidas de Madrid El Sabor de Madrid, c/Alcalde sainz de barranda Madrid

Atun (tuna) con escabeche -ortiz brand
Atun -Ventresca del Norte -ventresca/bonita

Any idea where I can get Marzipan made w/ marcona y largueta almonds

What is Chufa -is it ground almond, tiger nut, or ground nut ? Any ideas on where it might be available ?

Have I missed anything exciting ?
