The Spanish cuisine is improving faster and evolving from traditional cooking to high end cooking. In the beginning, Spanish chefs were very traditional cooks, avoiding the Nouvelle Cuisine and keeping a basic approach on their dishes. Each region has its own traditional dishes based on ingredients available locally. Some regions in the North of Spain, such as Basque Country or Catalonia quickly absorbed new ingredients and techniques from new settlers and so the cuisine has expanded its limits.
