    Cook's tips

    To make the tortilla the traditional Spanish way, cook the onion and potato in 150ml olive oil then drain off the excess. This adds a lovely sweetness to the finished dish.

    Drinks recommendation

    A Pinot Noir Rose from France is perfect for a picnic, and would match the sweetness of this dish beautifully.
