¿Qué comemos hoy? Spanish lunch vocabulary

¡Hola! This foodie video filmed in Cercedilla is a bit of an experiment, shot with the phone on the spur of the moment, if you like it leave a comment on YouTube and we’ll do more. This isn’t about Michelin 3* restaurants, it definitely isn’t Masterchef, it’s about sharing with you the simple food Spanish people eat every day. See the vocab list below, and if you need a further helping hand with the Spanish, remember that the little cog symbol at the bottom of the video lets you slow us down to 0.75 speed with can help a lot. Let us know what you think of the video and the “¿Qué comemos hoy?” idea in the YouTube comments¡Gracias!
