My first lunch back in Spain. I like this bar already. Pictured: cazuela de setas a la Serrana. It has a base very similar to a pisto Manchego

So glad I’ll be here for the monster truck show. Huh? I thought this sort of thing was only in the middle of America .

It had to be gate A2 at the far far end. I put on a serious sweat. I’m having an espresso first while everyone boards and I can cool off. #avios #goodseats .

Level One (owned by Iberia) Oakland to Barcelona. These are the mushroom ravioli in premium economy. Surprisingly innocuous for airplane food. A little mushy but not bad, stuffed with ricotta and spinach with a cream sauce with maybe 3 slices of criminis .

Oakland airport. Limited food options. Needed snack. Side of broccoli and fries. Sort of healthy. The broccoli. Fries are frozen of course, yuck just a taste. Hot sauce on broccoli helped .

This dish is only available 2 times per month. The famed and elusive Paine Farm squab. Even the French Laundry and Quince have limited allocations. Cooked at @nopa_sf slowly over a wood fire to an almost rare situation. Such a special treat!!
