Inside the Tortilla: A Journey in Search of Authenticity

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Who hasn’t dreamt of living in a warmer climate, amongst warmer people and in a country where food is given away for free?
Forget the Spain of coastal ghettos, of sun-burnt socks, sandals and sangria. You have to look further inland to find the real country, you have to travel Inside the Tortilla. More

About Paul Read

Writer and teacher of Tai Chi and many things (not quite 10.000) based in the Granada area of Spain. Born in London, England but raised as a Wanderer and Ponderer of the Way. Now I am perpetually and linguistically lost, but recovering a little clarity through the use of good technology, soft philosophy and many glasses of gazpacho during the humid summer months.

As Teapotmonk (Tai Chi identity) I can be found at the blog listing below.

Inside the Tortilla: The Journey
The epic journey from the serpentine coast of the Mediterranean to deep inside the land of the Tortilla in search of flavour, authenticity and a town where the ping of the microwave had yet to be heard. A journey that would discover if the tortilla was just a floppy potato omelet or a gastronomic and political symbol of a changing era.

Better known for his insightful writing on Tai Chi, Paul Read demonstrates his versatility by bringing his quirky view of the world to bear on his adoptive homeland. 
Travel writing and cookery all rolled into one whimsical adventure.
