Huelva

The Sierra de Aracena is in the north-western corner of Andalusia and is one of the least explored parts of the region. Small, white-washed towns like Aracena nestle between mountains, forests and oak meadows known as "dehesas". This is where the black Iberian pigs are farmed, and these pigs produce one of the area's finest delicacies, "Jamon Iberico". After visiting Aracena's "Grotto of Wonders" Neven discovers a bakery which is 175 years old and learns how the local speciality is made: thin strips of dough which are deep fried and formed into a block with cinnamon and honey.

Cadiz

Neven visits the city's fish market, looking for unusual things such as cuttlefish eggs. Sherry in Spain is very different to the sherry that's sold in Ireland and the UK as it is very dry, and, as Neven discovers when he visits a small sherry bodega (Bodegas Rey Fernando De Castilla), an excellent accompaniment to a variety of food.
