A plate of patatas bravas.

As part of their series on New Europe and in particular, Spanish Life and Culture, this article analyses the iconic dish of patatas bravas, in the search for the perfect recipe. Try them at home or make your own variety!

I’ve never really got patatas bravas. Spuds in tomato sauce will never set my world on fire like crisp calamares fritos, or delicious morsels of morcilla, yet they’re as inevitable an order in tapas bars as egg fried rice in a Chinese; just when you think you’ve got away with it, someone in the party always chips in – if you’ll pardon the pun. Upon cross-examination, the guilty party will cite the superlative bravas they once enjoyed in a particular little bar in Logrono, or the incredibly clever interpretation of the dish in some Michelin-starred restaurant in Barcelona, blithely ignoring the fact that we’re about 900 miles from either of those places on this particular evening.
