I love Spanish food - and have a few recipes on my site, but would love to know about more Spanish food blogs.
I was recently contacted by these guys who seem to do a good online service:

A good site for Spanish food is [url]http://www.tienda.com/ [/url]. And the owner has a place on the site where he talks about his travels in Spain. I'm not aware of any specifically Spanish food blogs, though.

Hello, Janel! I just now picked one of your suggestions at random (the todo pintxos site) for a quick look, and like it very much. Thank you for troubling to type up this bountiful post!
Tapas=dinner, easily. Smile

Do you read Spanish?

As a starter, I'd recommend these three blogs:

Directo al paladar

Diario del gourmet de provincias

Pisto y no pisto

I'll try and write a more comprehensive list, if you are interested...

Hello. If you have trouble sourcing top-quality, aged, sherry vinegar (it's used a lot in spanish recipes and gives much better flavour than ordinary white wine vinegars), I have recently started shipping it by the bottle from Jerez de la Frontera in Andalucia (where it's made). Please PM me or see my website.

Definitely check out the website for The Spanish Table stores located in Berkeley, Seattle, and Santa Fe. Their website is

www.spanishtable.com

The website includes a newsletter, a shopping category (equipment, food, etc.) and much information about Spain and Spanish dining.

While there is nothing quite like the complexity of a good long-aged sherry vinegar, many on the market have a serious drawback, high acidity. Most sherry vinegars have acidities from 7% to 8%percent, with 9% not uncommon, and in a salad this can be quite biting on my palate. It seems that only sherry vinegars that are either made from Pedro Ximenez based sherries or those taken from really old soleras (read $$$) have a manageable sharpness. For the last year, I have been using an artisan vinegar produced in Sonoma, California from Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc grapes using the traditional Orleans Method and then barrel aged. This delicious vinegar has only 5.5% acidity and a touch residual sugar, but more importantly as the producer writes; "The finished vinegar is almost sherry-like in color and complexity with hints of vanilla from the wood, sweet apricot, fig and pear from the late-harvest grapesÂ… supported by a strict backbone of crisp acidity from the vinegar base." It is great for salads and de-glazing, and it is most reasonable in price. You can find the Katz Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc Vinegar at
www.katzandco.com .
