In this Spanish we will see some useful Spanish cooking verbs such as “Asar” (to roast), Guisar (to stew), and Hacer a la parrilla (to grill). We will continue this theme in the next video lesson when we will see cooking utensils vocabulary in Spanish. It is really important to get a good balance in your knowledge of Spanish grammar, Spanish vocabulary and Spanish expressions. I will try my best to give you a bit of everything in this Spanish course, but don’t forget that it is up to you to practice what you have learned and to do as much reading, writing, speaking and listening in Spanish throughout the week. Some students fall into the trap of concentrating too much on only collecting lots of vocabulary or only studying all of the grammar and so find themselves lacking, in one department or another, when they are faced with real conversation. A good idea with these Spanish verbs and vocabulary is to label your cooking utensils with their equivalent names in Spanish and any verbs that are related to them. This way whenever you, for example, pick up a saucepan you will see that it is called “Cazuela” in Spanish and you can “Cocer” (to cook/boil) and “Dorar” (to brown) with it.
