Homemade tapas: patatas bravas & mojo verde and pimientos de padrón

Posted in: Food, Main courses · 16 July 2018

What a great summer it is! Regardless of where I have been traveling to recently (think Hamburg, Berlin and back to Frankfurt), the sun is shining non-stop, temperatures are making us spend even late nights outside, and cold drinks and food enjoyed outside seem to be the only appropriate way to eat and drink. I am therefore sharing three recipes for homemade tapas with you today: patatas bravas with mojo verde and pimientos de padrón.
