The No 1 snack in the world: Pan Con Tomate!


When David and I are sailing around, we quickly adapt to the culinary traditions of the places we visit.
That’s how we discovered the oh so simple, Spanish snack “Pan con tomate”.
When you cruise around the world, the one and only vegetable you literally find from West to East, is the tomato. This little dish became a very famous one on board.
The Spanish will have “pan con tomate” with their tortilla in the morning, as a quick lunch with some shaved Iberico ham on top, or in the evening with a glass of Cava.
I will add the night watch moment to this and can confirm, pan con tomato tastes great from dusk till dawn!


Serves 6-8.

What do you need?

• 2 fresh baguettes
• 2-3 small and very ripe tomatoes
• 4 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
• A pinch of “fleur de sel” (optional)


Cut the baguettes lengthwise in half.
Half the tomatoes.
Rub the tomato flesh against the breadcrumb of the baguette, until it looks nicely red.
Sprinkle some olive oil on top. (And some salt if you wish).
Serve immediately.

Advice: if the baguettes are not fresh, grill them first on the bbq or in the oven.
