Spain’s over-indulgence generally spills over into the kitchen during the Christmas period. Most households will happily spend small fortunes stacking up their larders in anticipation of several, large family celebrations. Prices of fish and seafood soar to exorbitant levels but it doesn’t seem to deter most Spaniards from enjoying firm favourites such as “Gambas” (prawns), “langostinos” (king prawns) “ostras” (oysters) and “Arroz con bogavante” (Spanish-style lobster with rice) throughout the festivities.
