CÁDIZ IS A VIBRANT TOWN OF STRAIGHT NARROW STREETS ON A HEADLAND PERCHED AT THE END OF A FINGER-LIKE PENINSULA. THE PEOPLE LIVING HERE — THE GADITANOS, CÁDIZ LOCALS — HAVE DEVELOPED THEIR OWN ACCENT AND SLANG AND ARE KNOWN ACROSS SPAIN FOR THEIR WICKED SENSE OF HUMOUR. ONE OF MY FAVOURITE DISHES FROM HERE IS CUTTLEFISH AND CHICKPEAS. IT IS A CLASSIC PRESSURE-COOKER RECIPE, BUT IF YOU DON’T HAVE ONE, USE A LARGE HEAVY-BASED CASSEROLE DISH AND SIMMER IT FOR TWICE AS LONG, ADDING A LITTLE EXTRA WATER DURING COOKING TO KEEP THE INGREDIENTS COVERED.
