Summer starts with a taste of Spain

Bring the best of the world to you this summer with our Taste of the World Tour. Every week, we’ll spotlight a new destination and all the local delights we love. Our first stop is Spain, so that means incredible dishes and drinks, fun arts and crafts for the kids, and exciting family challenges. Let’s get the show on the road!

Spanish recipes to make together

Picture yourself walking along the streets of Barcelona or Madrid, taking in the delightful smells of the markets and cafes. There’s always so many incredible flavours and local delicacies to enjoy. Now snap back to the here and now and get yourself ready to recreate those spectacular Spanish meals in your own home. We’ve got everything covered in our worldwide cookbook. Let’s make it amazing.

The easiest tapas ever!

Self-confessed foodie and Instagrammer @FoodieguideUK couldn’t wait to share these tempting tapas ideas from Aldi. She shows us how easy it is to bring the taste of Spain home with a spectacular Spanish-style foodie feast.

  • Treat yourself to tapas
  • Enjoy delicious Spanish small plates this summer. Choose from Chicken and Chorizo Kebabs, Luxury Olive Salad, Serrano Ham or a Spanish Tapas Selection with the authentic taste of Sangria or Cava Brut on the side.

Sam’s sensational sips

International Mistress of Wine Sam Caporn is always on hand on social with lots of top tips and hints on delicious wines and cocktails. Like the perfect pairing for your Spanish feast. “Take your Baron Amarillo Rioja Reserva and enjoy it with Aldi’s fantastic Seafood and Chorizo Paella. The wine really brings out the flavours of the dish and you’ll appreciate both the meal and the bottle a lot more.”

Around the world with amazing wines

Experience the best wines in the world from the comfort of your own home thanks to our resident wine expert Sam Caporn. She’ll be guiding you through a new selection of bottles every week to match our destination. Cheers!

  • Savour and save
  • You only need to find a few cheeky swaps to add amazing value to your weekly shop. Like this crisp apple Cava Brut Gold with hints of honey. Sam says pop a bottle open with some Spanish Mantecado cookies. Well, she is the expert, after all.
