Dear fellow food-lover,

From Italian pestos to Spanish romescos, nuts have a long culinary tradition in the Mediterranean Diet.

Discover how almonds, walnuts, pistachios, and other nuts add rich flavor to sweet and savory dishes. They also provide fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals, and heart-healthy fats.

Happy cooking from the team at Oldways!

Tarta De Santiago is a naturally gluten-free almond cake. It comes from Santiago de Compostela, Spain, the destination at the end of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage. With notes of citrus and a rich almond flavor, it pairs well with fresh fruit.
