Santa Cruz, is the primary tourist neighborhood of Seville, Spain, and the former Jewish quarter of the medieval city.It was into the beautiful barrio of Santa Cruz that Seville’s Jewish population was confined when Ferdinand III took the city from the Moors in 1248. Brutal as the Catholic monarch could be, you can’t help but feel as you wander around the pretty, impossibly narrow streets of Seville’s most famous quarter that there could have been worse places to be banished.
Flamenco history has only been documented for the past two hundred years or so, and anything before this time is open to debate and speculation.
Much of what we know from before this time comes from stories and legends that have been passed down through family dynasties, in a similar way to the flamenco song itself. One thing we can be sure of is that flamenco in its original form was only voice, a primitive cry or chant accompanied only by the rhythm which would be beaten out on the floor by a wooden staff or cane.
Spanish cuisine and in particular Andalucian food hails from the region of Southern Spain and it has been influenced by a multitude of flavors, from North African to Moors, Christians, Jews, and Romans. Regional Andalusian favorites include; gazpacho, gambas (shrimp) right at the waters edge, octopus, paellas, salmorejo (an almond soup) and a host of other delicacies. The history of Andalucia is all within the food served here. A strongly agricultural region Andalusia is deeply influenced by the land and the sea. Most of us have heard of tapas but Andalusian food is so much more than that.
The region allows for the harvesting of 5 plantings of most fruit and veg per year, this means that strawberries, eggplant, artichokes, tomatoes, leeks, and a cornucopia of fruit and veg are available year round. There is also the incredible healthy olives and olive oils, Iberico and Serrano Jamons, almonds, and seafood not seen in Canada and the U.S.A.
