Shopping, cooking and preparing food in Spanish

An English girl watches her Spanish friends, Javier and Sara, via a tablet as they shop for the ingredients of a paella. Javier and Sara speak only Spanish so Ashleigh repeats and explains key vocabulary. They first go to el mercado (market) to buy the vegetables and then to la pescadería (fishmongers) to buy the calamares or squid. They count out the items needed into their bag, ask the price ¿Cuánto es? and pay in euros. We see footage of the finished paella before Sara and Javier go to buy some typical mazapanes from Toledo to finish the meal.
