The database behind this site was the loving creation of Suzy Oakes, who has since passed away. She is greatly missed. You can see her obituary in the Guardian

A cookbook, featuring Suzy's favourite recipies, is available. People who are interested should contact Mun Flint. Currently, the cost is £12.50 plus postage and packing. All proceeds go to the Suzy Oakes Trust for Mill Road.

Language: Spanish

Description: Asturias is a region of north western Spain which used to be a kingdom in its own right. It is known as the dairy of Spain and produces an eponymous cheese and ham. Simple vegetables are of very high quality if you buy what is local and seasonal. The cuisine is basic but, as always, where fresh local produce is treated with esteem, of excellent quality.
