Be warned: this feature is wholly in praise of chorizo; the smoky, textured wonder that is such a key player in Spanish cuisine. We have a great list of delicious recipes for you here, from a stunningly simple Patatas a la Riojana — taken straight from Sabor: Flavours from a Spanish Kitchen — to one of our favourite lunch ideas ever: the Chickpea, Chorizo and Red Onion Scotch Egg (thanks, The Little Book of Lunch!) Even if you don’t make it overseas this summer, let this list transport you to sunnier climes.
