  • About

This fascinating dish, literally translated as ‘little hen from Granada’, seems the sort of thing you would eat in a Persian restaurant, but it is as Spanish as flamenco dancing (though much better, I hasten to add).

In fact, it is a recipe in which the New World meets the Old. It shows how 500 years ago innovative Spanish cooks were quick to exploit the exciting produce coming out of the Americas, namely sweet potatoes, bananas and carrots.
