What Spanish ingredients should I get?

Lina | Jun 20, 2011 03:25 PM

I don't have a lot of experience cooking Spanish food, but after a few days in Spain I'm dedicated to learning. I'm still here, so was wondering if anyone could give me suggestions of what food items or ingredients I should buy that can travel well.

I love the boquerones en vinagre here, but the packaging seems to say that I need to refrigerate it. Is that really true? I'd love to pack a few packages of this but it would have to be able to survive without refrigeration for a few days.

How about cured meats? Can I take those with me sans refrigeration?

Any other suggestions would be appreciated. I have a few more days here and would love to pick up a few things.
