In this Spanish Medium Review quiz you will be looking at things that make our food taste extra good. Basil, clove, sage – that’s spicy! Yes, we all love food but without spices, many of those foods wouldn’t taste very good. How good would cinnamon cookies taste if there wasn’t any cinnamon? That’s food for thought! Can you imagine candy canes without peppermint? How about pretzels without salt? The list can go on and on. Spices are the ingredients that make our favorite dishes the reason that they are our favorite. Remove a spice and that dish is definitely missing something.
Now imagine you are on vacation in a Spanish speaking country and you are asked to bake something. How would you go about asking for the right ingredients? Well – you learn the Spanish words for those spicy ingredients! That is what you will be doing in this quiz. There are other spices but this list will get you through pretty much everything!
