Spanish Tapas prep!

Just a few days left until the sumptuous Spanish Tapas this Saturday at the YO31 Secret Diners Club.

Nine courses of culinary heaven and my take on classic Spanish cuisine.

Making copius lists now: Menu, shopping list, order of prep... I need to get some sodium citrate, sodium alginate and calcium chloride for the 'spherication' of the melon balls. They're going to be suspended in a jambon consumme.

I've had a go at the beetroot jelly and it worked a treat! Tasted great…

Spanish Tapas ideas!

The next Secret Diners Club is on Saturday September 1st. The ideas for the Tapas are coming thick and fast. Just need a few more guests to sign up. I've been reading a lot from my (Liz's Xmas present) 'A day at El Bulli'. It's about the once greatest restaurant in the world and it's genius head chef - Ferran Adria. I have never been there, but was shocked to discover that I must have been in the area at some point in the past during a holiday to Costa Brava. El Bulli is situated at Roses,…

Suggestions for petit fours anyone?

I've made a batch of pistachio, almond and rose petal brittle (pic below) and will do cassis truffles and macaroons, but I'm a bit stuck for a fourth petit.  Any supper club-ettes got a favourite and wouldn't mind parting with the recipe?

swper - the sequel

Last  night we held our second ‘swper’. Having already got one under our belt I was really keen to see how this second evening would go and what similarities or differences might pan out. So....

 What was the same

The raucous laughter started at about 7.45pm and was still going…

Espana Tapas!

Can't wait to start on our latest supper club - Spanish Tapas. It rates up there in my top 3 favourite cuisines of all time. I'll never forget the time Liz and I were holidaying in Malaga, about 19 years ago, when we ended up drinking with an old Malagan couple, and they invited us back to their apartment for food. I still don't know exactly what it was, but it was mostly garlic, and delicious!
