Support your local casquería

Are you supporting your local casquería?

Maybe you should.
casqueria puente de vallecasA lot of people have probably never spent any time at a casquería–the shop where they sell different kinds of organ meat. I think it’s cool just to know how many parts of a pig you could be eating. Nothing goes to waste. And it’s all pretty cheap.

This is the casquería in the Mercado Puente de Vallecas, my former neighborhood..

I’ve written a couple of articles about organ meat on Vaya Madrid: Oreja de Cerdo and Beef Tongue.

Have fun!



How did I end up in Spain? Why am I still here almost 20 years later? Excellent questions. With no good answer... Anyway, at some point I became a blogger, bestselling author and contributor to Lonely Planet. So there's that. Drop me a line, I'm happy to hear from you.
