The people of Spain love their food. In fact, the typical Spaniard probably eats more food in a day than most people in the United States. Traditionally, as a respite from the baking sun, the entire country would close up shop to enjoy lunch for three hours in the afternoon. However, taking a leaf out of their book also makes for a great charter experience. They take their time eating, spread their meals throughout the day, and use the time between for work, exercise or fun. Or in our case enjoying the watery surroundings.
On-board during the day, of course guests will want to eat al-fresco, and why not, immerse them in Spanish cuisine, perfect for this type of dining. Locally sourced seafood or vegetables in soup, fresh fish and green salads and since Spaniards love eggs and dairy foods, many traditional desserts are made from fresh milk or cream.
Tapas are simply a way of life in Spain and they’ve gained popularity all around the world, mostly because they are just so delicious. Though considered Spain’s version of appetizers, they’re ideal aft deck yacht fayre at lunchtime, or indeed anytime.
