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.
