The history of our barbecue

Roasting is a technique used to cook food, especially meats. The food is exposed to the heat of the embers or to the fire and thus it cooks slowly. Thus giving a delicious and different flavor to the meats and vegetables that are cooked using this technique.

Now, everything started in prehistoric times and was optimized in the medieval Andalusian period. Little by little, it was nurtured with other cultures such as the Arab, where the baking of bread was taken as a reference. Likewise, the way of making skewers and skewers that are usually made outdoors was taken into account.

On the other hand, the gastronomy of Castillas is considered one of the most popular because in this place it is known as the “barbecue area”. The Castilian barbecue is characterized by the use of pork (tender) and sheep.

This technique was established in our Iberian Peninsula in the 12th century with the use of lamb meat. It is even common to roast different game meats. On the other hand, in La Rioja, asado became famous thanks to the chuletillas al sarmiento (lamb chops grilled on the grill).

Various preparations were adapted for fish such as: Sardines from Malaga and sea bream a la Madrid. This form of fish is consumed in different places, not just on the coasts. It also has Mediterranean influences as roasted vegetables are famous in that area and are widely used in Catalan meals.
