Barcelona and Chilli Peppers

In Barcelona city spicy food or any kind of food with chili does not seem to exist apart from the padron pepper. I recently spent a week in Barcelona and hoped to bring back some different sauces. After several plates full of Padron peppers varying from 3 euro to 11 euro for the same plate I was becoming a little disheartened. On a visit to one of the main markets for locals and tourists I stumbled across a whole colourful section of vegetables and..... chillis so took some pictures to share

We brought home a kilo fo these peppers to munch on when we got back, it was interesting packign them in a backpack

The amount of colour featured in the market is wonderful to see, everything sold looks so fresh and the prices are all cheaper than the UK despite being an expensive city and a tourist market!

  1. That's definitely an impressive array of chillis! You never see anything like that in the UK.
