Chef Tim Says....
One of the main things that is different about shopping for groceries here in Spain is that there are still central markets in many towns. There you will find butchers, seafood shops and produce markets. In San Sabastian, for instance, there's a wonderful market downtown that's very typical. We have these in a few cities in America like San Francisco and New York but even small towns here have such places.
The Mercado Tradicional (Traditional Market) in San Sebastian has 7 different stalls selling fish, 8 produce vendors and something you almost never see in America any more: butchers. It's really refreshing to see these folks interacting with their customers to get them just the right cut of meat instead of cuts that have been processed, pre-packaged, frozen, stamped with an expiration date and shipped halfway across the country to end up in a refrigerated meat case.

Isis: A Meal at Moto, Course Five
Almost halfway done with our meal, the fifth dish arrived. As it arrived, we were told that this was Moto's take on macaroni and cheese.
Served in a clear glass tumbler, this dish was a creamy white-ish yellow (more white than yellow), with chunks of what I assumed to be quail. The waiter explained this dish to us as dehydrated and puffed elbow macaroni with powdered cheese sauce on top. Mixed into the macaroni were chunks of deep fried quail. Moto: Course Five
Eat well, eat healthy, enjoy life!
