Flamenco Food Vibes

Here is a documentary from Tao Ruspoli that features, Juan Del Gastor, my flamenco teacher in Sevilla. He comes from a long line of Flamenco Gypsys that includes gods like his uncle Diego Del Gastor. I got some hilarious cooking lessons similar to the one Ruspoli is receiving in the video. Del Gastor has a rustic style of cooking. As I recall, we were making soup one day and he boomed at me, “Sin Pelar!!”, basically meaning, “Stop peeling the vegetables you fool! Throw them in whole!”

The second video is about Flamenco in the coastal Andalusian town of Jerez; it highlights the Morao family.   The opening scene shows him eating pan con tomate as it is often eaten, at a neighborhood tapas bar over coffee and the newspaper.
